Vintage ladies



Good Morning Peeps, yet another post from me, perhaps I am getting my act together at last.

It's time for me to share my mid month inspirational piece for FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges where this month the theme is simply 'Vintage'.

This was one of the first FlonzCrafty images I had and still one of my favourites which I have paper pieced and used a few worker stamps to create a little scene. The leading edge uses the TH alterations butterfly border which I coloured with Pan Pastels along with the shading on the main image.


The button is one I received in a lovely gift from Lots of Buttons............just look how beautifully they are packaged. If you love buttons then you just have to check out their website.

Thanks for visiting and hope you all have a good week.
