Isn't this stamp adorable? This is the first time my House Mouse Challenge win stamp has got inky. It's a Moving Home card for my friend and colleague who is moving to Dublin at the end of the month, I will really miss her. Charisma Cardz Challenge this week is Something with a Tail which really appealed to me as a theme, what a fun idea to work with and here are FOUR somethings with tails! I worked with the sketch from Sweet Stampin' Challenge and aimed for Vintage which is the theme at House Mouse Challenge this week. I like vintage but found it quite tricky to get it to work with a House Mouse image, think I've got it right though... I've ended up with quite a bit of distressing going on with the vintage look: the edge of the image and the piece of DP it's mounted on are both roughed up and also edged with Distress Inks, as is the sentiment. Distressing is Cupcake Craft's Challenge this week. Image is coloured with Copics, oh I sititched around it too, this card is my second entry for Paper Sundae's Stitching Challenge.
The DP is all Basic Grey Cappella; the sentiment is printed onto it as well but I've distress inked it and you can't really tell:). I bought the lace today in Hay-on-Wye, we went for a day out looking around the bookshops and I found the most gorgeous shop called Bedazzled selling ribbons, lace and buttons. This lace just said "vintage" to me so I bought a little bit... Wild Orchid Challenge is Lovely Lace. The flowers are Hero Arts, had them for ages and this is the last of them, the spacers under the brads are from Quixotic Paperie.
