It's challenge time again at Fussy and Fancy, this fortnight our theme is "Vintage" and we're sponsored by Live and Love Crafts.
The stamp is from Imagination Crafts, I'm slowly amassing a fair collection of these, I really love them because they're so versatile. I bought this one at the SECC in October, this is it's first inking and I have to say that I really enjoyed playing with it. I used Distress Markers and a water brush to create a soft, washy background, then I used mica powders mixed with a little water to paint the wings. The photos really don't capture the lustre that's there in real life.
To embellish, I added some cream organza ribbon with a large bow, stamped a sentiment with a Papermania stamp, then die cut it with an ornate, gold Spellbinders die, which cuts, embosses and debosses for a very pretty look, and finished with pearls in the corners.
