"Back to Vintage"

Let's Get Inky and Messy 
is the message from Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight!!!
So...grab your stamps, inks, sprays, pastes, powders and whatever else you need to make a mess!
Let your imagination rule the day and have just have fun.

 Don't forget ~ Marina from Cottage Crafts has a voucher each fortnight for a prize.



I just grabbed a couple of my favourite stamps ~ one old and one new
and inked, powdered, splattered, smudged, flicked and blended
AND IT FELT SOOOO GOOD!

Too much fun to put it all down here,
but go ahead and have some fun yourself...
Be inspired by the Fashionettes at FSC
and see where your heart takes you!!!

Love what you do 
and it will be a masterpiece!

Enjoy!

This is so gorgeous... I love everything about it - the russet, mulberry, gold and black colour combination is to die for... gorgeous stamping, masking and embellishments. She's divine in that hat (what stamp is it, do you know?), whole thing's just lovely!

Hi Dot, sorry to be here so late but better late than never lol
An absolutely gorgeous card with a really stunning background and the added stamped images and embellishing are totally gorgeous.
Thanks for your comment on my bird cage card and the mottled background came from a book so when I get a spare few minutes (hopefully tomorrow), I'll take some step by step pics and email you as it's so easy you won't believe it - very messy though!
Hugs, Fliss xx
