A while back I was fortunate enough to win one of Sukkersøtts wonderful challenges, and lucky, lucky me, look at the two stampsets from Stempelglede.com I won, WOW, they are just more than gorgeous. They're X-mas stamps.
And the other set are these wonderful angels...
And of course now that I'm back in my craftroom I just had to make a card for this challenge :)
I used dotted cream cardstock as my background. threw down some white paint at random. stamped with a borderstamp from Kreativ Hobby.
Tore, gessoed and distress inked pieces of a vintage brown paperbag with newsprint, glued it into place. lay down some border with holes in it, aged it with distress inks. Glued down a paperstrip. tore some white corrugated cardboard and distressed it, stamped my wonderful new stamp on a manilla background with memento rich cocoa. I must admit I had to stamp a dozen times before I got one I could use, at first I wasn't happy with the colours I tried, and then I pushed down to hard with my brayer a couple of times, before I figured out how to use photo stamps, lol.
Well when I finally got a stamped image that was good enough for me I distressed it and used dimensionals to adhere it to the corrugated cardboard. I glued down some lace, adhered the image with some more dimensionals on top of the lace, leaving some of it peeking out on the sides. Then I distressed and asembled my flower using metal and paperflowers. I had some leftover strips of alcohol inked metal tape, which I glued down, adhered my flower, some prima blings, stuck a stick pin behind the flower, glued down some feathers and Voila :)
Thanks for looking!!
have a great weekend,
hugs and smiles,
