SDC16: Vintage

Today over at Stampotique Designer's Challenge we have a STAMPOTIQUE ONLY challenge-
you must use ONLY Stampotique Stamps on your creation.



Milo is our hostess this week and she has challenged the design team to create a project with a VINTAGE theme. I'm a very cutesy stamper so this was definitely a challenge for me!  But, I had some great help from some great friends giving me some great feedback.


I picked the Girlfriends stamp to work with.  I love this picture of the 4 girls and reminds me of my girlfriends & I when we would take pictures all the time.  I stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black and then after it was completely dried, applied multiple coats of clear embossing powder and then sponged some chocolate ink over it (which didn't come out dark enough like I wanted it too).  I distressed all the edges and added some lace to the bottom with a rolled flower.

Hope you will come join us over at the Stampotique Designer's Blog and hop around to the design team to see what they created this week:

Card details:
Stamps: Girlfriends & Stencil Background (used on the flower) by Stampotique Originals
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom, Basic Grey designer paper
Inks: Versafine Onyx Black, Chocolate Chip, Blush Blossom
Accessories: Delicate Pink Trim from Webster's Pages, distresser, Die-Namics Rolled Flower die

Love your vintage card! I always have such trouble creating "vintage" style cards. It never comes easy to me. But you have definitely provided some great inspiration! :)
