 Hi and welcome to the start of a new challenge blog!
“Vintage Stamping Challenges”

We have a fabulous company called Flonzcraft who will be sponsoring us each and every month.
The winner of each monthly challenge will receive a voucher for Leo’s store for $20.

For our very first challenge we have picked one for everyone
Anything Goes

I had sooo much fun making this card…

The Gibson Girl is masked and the roses stamped behind her
and cut with a nestibility using the out-of-the-box technique.

I then stamped the rose again and deconstructed it 

so that I could add to and extend the leaves,
as well as 3D-ing the rose itself.
The background is made with distress inks in pinks and blues
using the splodging method. 
Texture paste was added through a stencil 
and coloured with victorian velvet and aged mahogany inks.
Then I got carried away…
and added more texture paste into the corners
and coloured with my new Viva metallic inks.
Gold rub and buff was finally added as a highlight.
