Good morning my lovelies, can you believe its August already? I must be getting old as this year is going by so quickly! Its time for our new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges and this month our theme is 'Summer Days', you don't have to create a vintage project - just follow the theme and make sure that stamping is the focus of your project and you'll be in with a chance of winning a fabby $20 voucher for Flonzcraft!
I've made an easel card for my DT offering, using one of the lovely Gibson Girl stamps from Flonzcraft. I made my base card from kraft card and stamped the lady on a smaller square of kraft, adding a background of sea and sky using PanPastels, (you can find a tutorial for quick and easy clouds using PanPastels here). This time I added some extra white to the clouds and the waves with a white Graph'It Shake pen (I just scribbled the pen on my craft sheet and applied it with my finger, I'm such a scruff lol)
I coloured the image with pencils and added some stamps cut from a Graphic 45 paper, some twine and a little brass charm
The base of the easel card has been decorated with more Graphic 45 papers and embellies and some more twine. I've distressed all the edges with a craft knife and some walnut stain distress ink and layered everything up withh 3d foam pads.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Hazelnuts Patterned paper: anything goes with patterned paper
A Creative Romance: fun in the sun
Eclectic Ellapu: seaside/nautical
My time to craft: use kraft
Ruby's Rainbow: beach

Monday morning means back to work for me so I'd better get my skates on. Have a great day and thanks for popping by
