Thanks for calling by...Sarah here with my final piece of the month. Golly, almost February already! I've had a fabulous time being Guest Designer and thought I'd end with a bit of good old-fashioned vintage shabbiness!
Retro Grunge Stash and swiped it with Vintage Photo Distress Stain to add more depth of colour. I stamped it with a few Papillon butterflies and script before machine-stitching and distressing the edges .
This Gibson Gal is really great and I stamped her onto a French book page that I had white-washed with Gesso. I aged the edges, layered her onto a scrap of design paper which I'd also stamped before adding more random stitching and Distress Inks. I created the flowers by stamping the rose from Flower Power onto manilla card that I had swooshed with Distress Stains and water. I stamped them lightly with a script, gave them a light crumpling and roughed up the edges with an emery board for the shabby look. I dropped a gold bead into the centre for a little sparkle.
I just want to say a huge thank you to Jennie, Hels, Emma and all the team for their support and this fabulous opportunity to share a little inky passion with you all. Have a great weekend...stay inspired, creative and full of Mojo!
See you around...Sarah.
