Vintage at Allsorts and latest Hochanda TV makes


Morning Peeps, a scheduled post because as this goes live I should be having my second eye op and as it's Saturday I need to tell you about our new challenge at Allsorts where Wendy is our host and would like to see a 'Touch of Vintage'. This weeks lucky winner will receive a prize from Craft Stash.

I am also posting (scheduling) over at the Chocolate Baroque Blog today, you will find my shares further down. All four stamp sets were designed by Lesley using her own vintage blueprints plus beautiful florals, to say I loved working with these is an understatement and I got totally carried away ending up with rather a lot of samples, some are below and I will be sharing more later in the month.

This is a sample from last months Chocolate Baroque Hochanda shows, the background was created on the Gelli Plate, then the steampunk Owl stamped in Versafine black and I decided to leave it uncoloured  and just added a couple of pearls for the eyes. Then some texture paste added through a stencil, a sentiment from the same stamp released and matted onto corrugated.


And a tag made from Artisan Designs stamps, also created for Hochanda TV., background stamping over Oxides, the flowers stamps, cut out and decoupaged and some white highlights added, oh yes and a Chocolate Baroque Bee.


I've again been told I need to have a two week screen break to try and preserve the nerves from more stress and strain so will see you all in due course.
