Happy Saturday friends! So happy to have you visiting again. Since it's Saturday, it must be time for another challenge over at Our Creative Corner. This week Tui Nathan is our hostess and she is challenging us to make a black and white project and then add a pop of color. I started out with the black and white and thought I did good achieving that color palette. Then came time for the pop of color and I probably let myself get a little carried away with the Victorian Velvet.
Don't you just love this Wendy Vecchi stamp? It has such a lovely look - like vintage lace. I stamped onto white CS with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. The stamp wasn't large enough to cover the entire tag so I filled in the blank space at the bottom with script stamp from Wendy's Live and Make Art set. To cover the joining and give some extra white, I layered some white paper twist ribbon over it. The sentiment was stamped on the Movers and Shapers Mini Label and then it was given just one coat of UTEE and sponged with Victorian Velvet. I had a scrap of the millinery netting floating around my desk from another project I worked on this week and thought it added just the right touch to my little vintage creation. That stuff was super expensive, but I picked u a few yards to sell in my Etsy as I had several requests for it and it does make a fun addition to a make.
The flower was made with the TH Tattered Florals die and coated with UTEE using my melting pot and an old paint brush. Tutorial here.
And that's it for this week. Pretty simple, but I needed to save time. I've had a nasty cold this week and I'm exhausted. Plus I have some big projects in the works. I hope you will stop by the blogs of the rest of the design team for Our Creative Corner.
Thanks again for stopping by and blessings on your weekend.
