Good morning everyone and a very happy Sunday morning from a very damp North West.
I have been having a play with my Spectrum Aquas this weekend. I am not confident with these pens and need to practice, practice, practice. I also saw that the challenge at Allsorts this week was vintage so I thought I would combine the two.
I always struggle with vintage because to me it means brown and grungy but having read Brenda's blog yesterday I am rethinking my ideas of vintage.
The image is from Penny Black and is called Collage of wishes and comes with 4 different sentiments which fit in the banner across the bottom of the stamp making it a very versatile stamp. I stamped it onto watercolour card (from Crafter's Companion)with Stazon ink and coloured it with my Spectrum Aquas.
- Collage of wishes stamp set from Penny Black
- Spectrum Aquas - begonia, burgundy, jasmine, moss, leaf green, chocolate, yellow, marigold and slate.
- Botanical notes paper pad from First Edition
- Tonic layering squares
I distressed and curled the edges of the papers and inked them with antique linen distress ink to make it more vintage (hopefully!).
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
