This week’s challenge at Simply Stampin‘ is to make a project based on a Royally Regal theme. I decided to use the Rue Des Fleurs stamp set (p16 mini) and make a vintage card.
I recently attended Australia’s Stampin’ Up! Convention (will blog more about that soon!) and have been inspired by the so many different ideas that I saw! There was a fabulous workshop WOW by Theresa who showed us how to use snips of ribbon tied together. Amanda from Stampin’ Up! Sydney office showed us how to make colour splotches on the paper using an aqua pen, reinker and some rubbing alcohol. I don’t think this was the exact formula but it is what I used to make my colour splotches. I realise now that I should have been taking more notes rather than talking with fellow demonstrators.
Here is a closer look at the gorgeous ribbon tie with the Trinket Crown (p 141 IB&C) and coloured splotches:
The card above was actually my second card for this challenge. The first card I made used the crown from the Extreme Elements stamp set (p60 IB&C) which always makes me think teenager. After making the card I found the crown trinket and got the vintage idea in my head…
Anyway, thought I would share my card with you:
