Childhood

Childhood...
is the new challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges.

This card came together a little backwards!
I knew the gorgeous stamp that I wanted to use, 
but I started with the rosette, which I have never made before,
and decorated it in a shabby chic style. 
Then I made the card around it...


The style of the finished rosette decided how I was going to finish the rest off.
The stamp is Girl On A Windy Hill and is such a carefree image.
There is lots of gesso, lots of layers, lots of ink,
a little lace, bling and distressing...
There is just something very special about Shabby Chic!!!

And I will definitely be making more rosettes!!!
They are so much fun.

Flonz has a generous $20 prize for one lucky entrant
which can be spent on a huge range of goodies from his on-line store.
And they are cheap...so you can get heaps of them!

The Design Team have once again come up with some
outstanding examples of how to showcase these stamps...
so please be inspired
and come join in our fun at Vintage Stamping Challenges


Enjoy!


I am entering this card into the following challenges ~

Another of my favourite Floz stamps Dot and she looks lovely in the tone on tone blues and little touches of lace. Very pretty and delicate.
