Vintage Sparkles with Sheena
I love vintage but don't dabble much in it myself, however this beautiful rose stamp and die from the Sheena Douglass Perfect Partners range seemed just perfect for the job.
As you can see, the rose on tis card is VERY 3d and looks very delicate. Can you believe that its has been made from cheap photo copy paper???
I saw Sheena demonstrate these types of stamps and dies at the NEC, and you really can get the best results using the cheap paper, purely because it gives you the flexibility that you need to shape the flower.
So, for this card I dies cut the shapes and then stamped them before colouring with lashing of Vintage Spectrum Sparkle pens. Then you have to let them dry and you are left with a slightly crispier version of the paper which you can hold and stick together to make the flower.
I think that this would make a lovey topper on a decorative box too.
Finally, the papers came from a magazine freebie pack, but there are some really nice vintage papers in the Downton Abbey range if you are looking for something to fit the theme.
Well that's all for me today. I hope you will come and join us over at Cute Card Thursday.
See you there!
