Olde Worlde



Hello Peeps, a little late posting this one, got my computer near enough back to rights but Blogger was not very welcoming when I wanted to post this, perhaps he's missed me !

It's time for our March  challenge at  FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges  and this month our theme is 'Olde Worlde'. As always there if a fabulous $20 on line store voucher to be won from FlonzCraft.

Don't ask me why, but I just couldn't get my head round this one, the words 'olde worlde' say all things Dickensian to me and I have nothing in my Flonz stash which I felt fitted that era, so I have gone with these 20's Fashion Ladies which I guess are from almost a 100 years ago so pretty 'olde'.

I stamped the image in sepia archival and shaded very lightly with some pink DI and placed behind a die cut aperture. The DP has a very subtle pattern so I spruced it up with a bit of sponging through a Timmy stencil. Some crumpled seam binding, lace, pearls, Vintage corners and a cameo. 



My next two cards are from my next delivery to the Animal Health Trust using Nicecrane images from the Black Puppy and Butterfly twinches sets, all my cards seem to sell well at the AHT to help raise funds for their invaluable research, in fact usually almost quicker than I can make them and those with animals are especially popular. The sentiments on both are from one of the new Penny Black sets called Sparkles and Smiles.


Have a good week everyone.

  6. Hello Brenda
    Great cards today. I especially like the colour you have used in the vintage ladies one. Talking about vintage, there is a vintage clothing shop near where I live and it seems that the 70s are now vintage! I remember wearing them first time around!
    Take care

  10. These are lovely, Brenda. I will admit that I was also puzzled by the challenge theme. I don't know if I will be joining in that one or not. Will have to give it some thought. But you've done a great job with it! I like the Nicecrane cards too - the puppy is adorable and the butterfly is so pretty!

  42. If I had to make a DT card for the "olde worlde" challenge I think I'd be lost and without ideas what to make. You however totally rocked it. Those vintage ladies fit the theme perfectly.
    Wonderful news about your cards selling quickly. It's very nice of you to help the AHT this way - I am sure they appreciate your help very much.
    All of your cards are wonderful!
    Hugs! xx

  43. Love your vintage ladies with all the embellies that would have been so perfect with their lovely flapper dresses. Using the DI soft pink was so pretty with the sepia stamping tones, and love that old fashioned cameo against the bows, delicate lace & that subtly embossed background. It's just beautiful indeed. Enjoyed seeing the animal cards, so cute, and thanks for reminding me to check out Nice Crane to see the latest. I love those images, and work so well on your cards for this particular cause. So good of you to help out this way. TFS & Hugs.
