One for the Girls




It's time for a new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenge and this month it's 'One for the Girls' chosen by Dot.

I don't know about you, but I've been very aware that I neglect a lot of my older stamps, even though they were 'must haves', so for this challenge I've dug out an old Dark Room Door 'Chocolatier' set and repeatedly stamped the Chocolate shop for the background, along with one of the quotes.  For the main image  I've stamped 'Valerie' from IndigoBlu, masked her and stencilled a background  with Victorian Velvet Distress ink.  I've used VV, direct to paper for the mats and died the vintage seam binding.  As I was using stamps that had been neglected, I added a feather from the bits box.

There's some fabulous inspirational makes from the rest of the DT, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find  details of our Sponsor,  InkArtDesigns  who is offering one lucky random winner a stamp from the shop.

I am entering this at Country View Crafts - Anything But Cute

Enjoy the rest of the weekend,
Avril xx

This black and white style with a bit of pink looks very nice. I think she is a shopping girl, the background tells it to me. ;) Great background motiv.

I regularly try and use some older stamps and sometimes I experience new found love. I absolutely love how you used that old shop stamp to create a unique and beautiful background. So clever!
