A cup of Roses.....


Image may contain: text

Hello dear blogging friends: The RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE, has a new one for you to play with and we are giving you this lovely picture to inspire you.
I looked up the word VINTAGE and there are several meanings, some refer to the process of picking up the grapes and making wine others say that the word VINTAGE refers to something classic or that was made some time ago, this definition is what I used for my card.


This image is from Our Daily Bread and it's 3 years old, love this sweet image of the tea cup full of flowers and that lacy napkin underneath. The little cameo on the right is from a stash of plain rubber stamps I bought from a blogger who was selling some of her older sets.
The background paper is actually a paper napkin, I saw THIS VIDEO and I thought it was really awesome so, I bought some pretty paper napkins with various designs to give this a try.  I was really surprised at how easy it is and how beautiful the results were.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The lacy border is from a retired SU set called "Delicate Details" that came out on February of 2017, the little cup image was a gift from my 20y/o granddaughter about 2 years ago, she found it at the craft store here in town.

Opalite.....

Hello everyone: My teammates and I at SHOPPING OUR STASH, have a brand new challenge for you to play with this coming week, the theme is "MYTHICAL AND MAGICAL" so go look in your stash of images for some Fairies, Unicorns, Gnomes, Dragons, Pegasus, Mermaids, etc. and come along and join us in the gallery.
Here is my DT card to inspire you.


This is another image from my fabulous stash of Fairy rubber stamps that my aunt gave me some years ago, she found them at a thrift store, in a cardboard box, dusty, all unmounted, play red rubber, with no names or any indication of where they were purchased, she bought the entire lot of about 25 stamps for $10.00 and gave it to me.
I love coloring this Fairies, all of them are beautiful and totally magical.
This one's name is "Opalite", I found THIS IMAGE on Pinterest and immediately pinned to my Fairies Board, it's rare that there is a name for this beautiful images, I tried to color her with more or less the colors of the picture, I used only Prismacolor pencils and paper stumps lightly dipped in Gamsol.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.


The sentiment is from an old Flourishes stamp set called "Orchids" and it's my favorite to use for my Fairy cards. The butterfly it's I think from Penny Black, I lost the package a long time ago.
So go and check out the SHOPPING OUR STASH blog to see my teammates beautiful creations and get even more inspired.
