Hello everyone, it's time for a new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and you certainly rocked the last one with all the gorgeous tags on display.
The theme for this fortnight is Vintage which I absolutely adore and I'm sure a lot of you do too so there are sure to be a lot of entries this time. You can make whatever you like but please remember that it must include some stamping.
I've made an 8 x 8 card as the image as chose to use and which I've had for a while is quite large and I wanted to do some stamped papers to go behind it.

I really love this collage style image which is Paper Artsy Wings Plate 5 and I've had this in my collection for a number of years. I stamped it with VersaFine Imperial Purple and then inked it with VersaColor cubes in Old Rose, Cinnamon, Topaz and Lilac. I added colour to the adorable little angels wings with an aqua pencil and then painted on a touch of Stickles.
I set the panel on a mount stamped around the edges with a tiny Anna Griffin stamp that I've also had for years (the code is 580C02). I embossed with gold detail powder and sponged on burgundy ink.
I made a background paper with parchment paper sponged with Tattered Rose and Victorian Velvet Distress inks, stamping on the large flourish corner from the Viva Decor My Paper World Big Corner Elements clear stamp set with the Victorian Velvet.
I tore a piece of dusty pink handmade paper with deep pink flecks and attached this to an 8 x 8 kraft card blank. I added the pink flourish panel and then some cream crochet lace. I added the image panel and then some pink pearls.
I finished off with a layered flower - the larger one was altered with the Old Rose and Topaz inks and the centre is a German Gold Scrap flower from Paper Artsy.

I also urge you to visit the challenge blog as the creations by the Design Team are totally stunning and you couldn't wish for better inspiration to spark your creativity.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Fairy Fun Fridays - Pink and Distressed
Raise The Bar - Things With Wings
Sugar Creek Hollow - Vintage Children
Emerald Faerie Garden - Pearls
Wags 'n' Whiskers - Lace
Deep Ocean Challenge - Lace

Thanks for looking and Happy Sunday,
Fliss xx
