The Many Faces of a Woman!



Hi and welcome to another Fashionable Stamping Challenge and this time it's up to you to show us what you can create as its 'Anything Goes'.  Again we are sponsored by Flonzcraft who are offering one random winner a $20 gift certificate for their online store.


I decided to use my Cabinet card die and create these frames, which are held together with ribbon.  My images are Gibson Girls from Flonzcraft, which  just needed to be lightly coloured , so I used  Distress inks.  I embossed the cardstock before cutting, and then distressed with Spun Sugar, Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass Distress inks,  and then grunged it up with Frayed Burlap.    I did think about adding flowers, as the images are so feminine, but then took them off - did I do right?  The words are Tim Holtz, stamped in Weathered Wood.  Sorry for the poor photos, it was a nightmare to photograph for some reason!


It would be great if you could join us, and if you need any inspiration,  then my fabulous teamies have some wonderful creations to show, so please pop over here and take a look. 

I am entering this at:

Stamping for the Weekend - Die cuts and punches  
Our Creative Corner - Anything Goes   
City Crafters Challenge - Pink, Blue, Green & Brown (my ink colours)                                                                      

That's it for now,  apart from to say 'Hello' to my new followers, its lovely to see you, and I hope you'll continue to visit.  I hope you all have a good Bank Holiday Monday and the sun keeps shining for everyone.

What a delicious triptych, Avril - I love the simplicity of it, and I think the non-flower move was great - it lets those wonderful Gibson Girls shine. Gorgeous delicate colours on the embossing too - really pretty. Great to have you play along at Our Creative Corner!

A gorgeous triptych Avril!!! I love how the words fit so beautifully with each female image too. A very calming card, it certainly doesn't need anymore added.

HI Avril

What a fabulous die shape... and I love the tri fold too. A stunning card altogether.

I remember having a Gibson Girl stamp a long time ago... no doubt it's still tucked away somewhere.. They are so elegant in the way they dress and how their hair is done. Must've been lovely to live in that time!

Hugs

Hi Avril! Love your piece and I agree "sans les fleur" is perfect. Did you hand cut the inner panels? I have this die cut and would love to try such a project. Thank you for the inspiration! Hugs, Yvonne
