Vintage Ladies

Morning everyone.

Are you ready for another challenge? This weeks challenge theme is “Vintage”.  As usual, there is lots of scope for this weeks challenge.

It’s quite exciting over at Addicted to Stamps and More this week as there is a virtual party going on as we are being joined by the wonderful DT from Inspired by stamping.  So a huge warm welcome to Joanna, Vicki, Leah, Shani, Irit, Deb and Liz, Grace and Nazeema….. I told you it was a party!!
I love vintage themes so I really enjoyed this challenge. Here is my little DT piece.

DSC_0014aStamps Used – Crafty Individuals

For the focal piece I stamped the vintage image onto white coated card stock using archival black ink and coloured using some inks from felt tips and a damp paint brush.  I then masked the image of the ladies and coloured the card stock with some distressing inks.

I used dies to make the flower and leaf flourish, just adding a few seed beads in the center of the flower.   I used a punch and some pretty papers to make up the layering pieces.

Thats all from me today.
Happy Crafting

Best Wishes Florence x

  6. Hi Florence
    I received e-mail notification for the post from your other blog but I am not receiving notifications of new posts for this blog. I am certainly a Follower of both so not sure why I am not receiving notifications.
    Such a gorgeous creation and the colours are so pretty and remind us of the colours that Springtime flowers will be displaying, hopefully soon enough.
    Glad all is well with you.


    1. Hi ya Lynne. Great to hear from you. You are down as following both blogs. Something is strange with the subscriptions. I have the same problem and I have lost a lot of my non-wordpess subs. Thank you for calling in and for your lovely comments.

    1. Hi Linda, Lovely to hear from you. Thank you for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Linda, last year you had on your blog some altered window frames that your ladies made at one of your retreats. I could not find the post when I had a look the other day. When you have time could you let me know the link to the post.

  7. Love this – am very much into all things Edwardian right now (our new place is from that era) and am also obsessed with the programme Mr Selfridge…such elegance and the card really captures it!


    1. Hi Netty. We had this problem on the other blog if you remember. I have added the “follow this blog by e.mail” to the side bar just for you! he he! Always lovely to hear from you Sweetie. Thank you so much for your support. You are very kind.

      1. Netty, I am such a dunda head. If you want to follow any wordpress blogs there is a black box “follow” that comes up at the bottom of the screen on the right hand side. All you have to do is press that and enter your e.mail address.
        Crafty hugs, Florence x
