Little Angel

Hello folks, Monday is here again and hope you all had a lovely weekend. I'm here today with news of the next of Val's Vintage challenges over at Make My Monday which this week has the theme of Vintage Childhood.
I've gone rather girly for my inspiration with a gorgeous collage stamp from Crafty Individuals.

The sweet little angel is CI-062 and I've stamped her with Archival coffee ink and coloured her with Promarkers and inks.
I made a background paper with Crafty Individuals background stamp CI-258 stamped several times with Victorian Velvet Distress ink and then sponged with Tattered Rose. I tore the edges to distress them and rubbed them with Old Rose VersaColor ink.
I used a scrap of a further handmade background paper made by stamping a Clearly Inspired Stencil Flowers image with pink and green ink, sponging with Antique Linen and spraying with pink and gold  glimmer mists. I tore the edges and inked with old rose as before.
I inked a doily with pink ink and assembled the card as you see, adding some text cut out from the background stamp, stamped with coffee ink.

The Design team have made some gorgeous creations for your delight so do pop over for a look. We had some fabulous entries last week and can't wait to see what you create this time.
Have a great week.
Hugs, Fliss xx
