Vintage Stamping

September 25th 2011
One of my favourite "themes" to work with is Vintage and the new challenge at the Fashionable Stamping Challenges Blog is Vintage!


I made this card recently to try out a new stamping technique "Embedded Image" which can be found at the Splitcoast Stampers Site. I haven't done a lot of actual rubber stamping lately so it was great fun to dig through all my supplies and get inky and embossed fingers!!

Everything on my card is rubberstamped - the background has been stamped and sponged with distress inks, the "think happy thoughts" and "Dream Lady" are from a Paper Artsy set I have had for years. I've added a little beaded pin, some tea dyed muslin and a paper flower and brad.


Here's a close up photo of the actual embedded image part of my card which has a swirl stamp for the embedded image:

I wonder if you are our first entry?
Fabulous!!! Love the textures, colours and that stamp was one of the stamps I used time and time again when I first started stamping and guess what, I only sold her very recently on E-bay, now I will be wishing I hadn't done so LOL
Thank you for joining Fashionable Stamping Challenge.
Wishes
Lynne
