Today sees the start of our new challenges at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping and Pretty Little Ribbons and at the first we would like to see ' Blues, Aquas and Browns' and at Pretty Little Ribbons it's 'Anything Goes'.
And it does look rather like I've got a vintage thing going on with the same colourways for both, although that wasn't my intention but I do admit that I love working with the blue and brown colour palette.
To create the shape of the three way card which is my DT piece for Pretty Little Ribbons I used a spellbinder die sideways cutting only halfway through each panel by placing the main part of the card outside of the embossing plates. I randomly stamped each panel with the Tim Holtz pillion stamp set and an Inkylicious wire stamp using TH distress inks tea dye, vintage photo and peacock feathers and round the edge with a Hero Arts swirls stamp. I stamped the butterflies a second time to decoupage and made two roses using a five petal punch (added: I had already made this one when I received my new punch and stamp sets from Ruth or I would have used them again). I have used a selction of ribbons, braids and beads which are all available on the PLR website.
By second card is my DT piece for FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping using the two birds image, inking the stamp with distressed markers and spritzing with water before stamping onto a piece of Fabriano watercolour card. The flower, hinge and bird on branch are all Tim Holt dies to which I added liberal amounts of Frantage gold and aqua and the DT is Bo Bunny.
My third card uses more pretty laces and ribbons from PLR, a Penny Black stamp and some little dots added with liquid pearls.
I do hope you will find time to join in with our challenges this month look forward to seeing all your entries.
