"Feminine Beauty"

Feminine Beauty
is the new challenge this month at Vintage Stamping Challenges.

I have some gorgeous silhouette stamps from Flonzcraft
and I had the idea of using them in white instead of the usual black.
This then lead to the idea of a Wedgwood type of card.
Simple elegance is the look that I was after.

For this card I have inked up the background and front panel
in a mixture of blue DI.
I stamped the crackle onto the background to break it up just a little.
The flowers I made myself (yes, I am slowing getting the hang of it!)
The main image can be found here.
Being in a Wedgwood style, it was extremely difficult to not add 
extra bits!!!!!!!!!!! It was all about the white on blue.

I hope you take the time to pop over to Vintage Stamping Challenges
and check out the amazing talent and ideas from the team.
 Flonzcraft is offering a generous $20 gift voucher to the winner,
he offers an occassional spot prize
and there is always a top 3!


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges ~

Gorgeous style you've achieved here, it looks a bit antique, like a commerce for some perfume from 1711...
