I hope you have all been enjoying a wonderful weekend! At Winter Wonderland this week, Pascale has given us the challenge to create 'A Victorian Christmas' with distressing as an optional bonus. I don't have a ton of vintage or victorian style stamps but I do own this one and I feel that these 'collage' style stamps fit the bill nicely!
We welcome 4 wonderful and talented ladies to our DT team this week. I would like to introduce Marianne from Marianne's Craftroom Mandy, Kate & Janet. Welcome girls - we are thrilled to have you join us to share your incredible talent!
I decided to go heavy on the distressing with this card and have to say I love the finished result! This is so not normally my style but I'm happy to have achieved this. I used my distress inks and foam blending pad on the image (Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet & Tea Dye). I was pretty heavy-handed with the distressing tool too! I made the flower myself (that's a first!!) and then added some lace underneath it. The gold adhesive pearls are from Prima.
That's all folks! Make sure you pop on over to Winter Wonderland and check out the gorgeous creations that my fellow DT girls have made. Hopefully you can find the time to join in with us this week too and start adding to your christmas card collection! I have to say I'm quite enjoying doing a christmas card a week and seeing my pile grow!
Thanks for stopping by today and coming for a visit - I always love to have you here. Your comments are always very gratefully received and appreciated! I hope you enjoy the remainder of your weekend! And for the moms celebrating today, a very Happy Mother's Day!! And now that we turned our clocks forward, we get to enjoy lighter evenings - yay - Spring is definitely around the corner now!!
