A Vintage Stamp

Final post of the day, and an entry to The Stamp Man Fortnightly Challenge which is currently looking for vintage or distressed entries. And so...


The main image on this card was created using a Michael Powell stamp, Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Promarkers. Lace and ribbon were distressed using a Marvy Heritage ink pad in Copper, and the K&Co backing paper was distressed, folded, layered and sprayed with  Cosmic Shimmer mica mists.


Some beautiful dark green pearl paper was used to create a wine bottle and stamped vine leaves, antique gold and copper Spellbinder die cuts were sprinkled liberally to accent different areas, and I had fun with the grapes; this required recolouring gold Pearlidoodles dots with a mulberry Promarker (amazing what you can do at a push!!) Overall it was good to see a totally different feel given to the same stamp used for another project (see earlier Inspired By Others post).

OK, that's all folks!! Got to get prep done for work tomorrow. Thanks for dropping by - I'd love to hear what you think and will endeavour to return the favour. Hugs, Buttons x
