Crafts & Me DT Card..........Vintage

Good morning my lovelies & what a beautiful morning it is up here on the north coast.....totally glorious.
Sorry I'm late this morning I've had a wonderful morning.....just the best & I've had some fabby news but I cant tell you just yet ;0)...........its so good tho I will be adding extra to my candy which will be ready next monday May 2nd.

Anyway onto my DT card & this week you have us Rockin Rubbah Girlies over at Crafts & Me Challenges
& this weeks its Angela's theme & she has chosen another of my fave themes....
I love vintage & its give me an excuse to use this fabby stamp which is just perfect for vintage I think.
Teresa really does stock stamps for all themes & occasions.

I've inked distressed & rubbed everything to an inch of its life lol. I love this stamp & it really did seem perfect for this theme I thought. Another card with no colouring OMG lol & I've used 3 stamps for this card.

The first stamp is the postcard one which I really cant remember where I got it from but I really love this stamp. I stamped it with brown memento then inked it with vintage photo, distressed the edges then inked it again around the edges. The lace is from my fabric box & I just tied it in a bow & stuck a black feather behind the beady thingy's & of course the hat pin........Marilyn Monroe likes her bling!!

The ticket is also a stamp which had the same treatment. I then layered it up on some corrugated card which has been battered & inked & painted & had edges brassed a little lol.

The stamp is of course 'marilyn Monroe Sitting' from Stampsmith which you can get from Crafts & Me Store they are out of stock at the mo but Teresa does have the one where she has her dress flying.
To make it look vintage I made sure not to overload it with ink & stamped it on photo card. I sanded bits & then I added 'Crackle' accents but I didnt want it thick so I rubbed it over the image with my finger & then left to dry which didnt take long as its only a thin layer. I love how its turned out actually.
The mat I 've put it on is one of my new nesties I cut out using black card then put white chalk paint around the edge & rubbed it so you could still see the black & then heated ambossed it.
Papers altho you can barely see them are 'Paris Nights' by GCD. The doily is from my stash.
Bit of a different card for me but you know I dont like to stick to a style.......& I just love my embellies & vintage certianly needs it bellies & lace lol.
Hop along to the challenge blog cus the girls have made stunners again.
Teresa has the fabulous deco stamps back in stock, I ordered mine yesterday lol she also has new stampsmith ones in as well which are just fab so pop yourself over here for some r&r.
Cant wait see your creations this week.
Thank you soooooo much for popping in I sooooo appreciate it you all rock mmwah
Tatty bye for now............
Challenges I'm Entering...... - Recycling (corrugated cardboard from a box) - Pile It On (think there is about 7 layers lol)

Edited to add.....Will be back later to tell you my fantastic news!!!

Gorgeous Vicky, I'm a real lover of Vintage, although I'm sure you know that already. Love this stamp, I just bought the Marilyn with the flying dress for my sister, just trying to learn how to ink them right, lol. She calls me the professional and I still can't do it. Love all the embellishments and agree Vintage needs loads. Can't wait to hear the news? Hugs Tracy x

Angela said...

Gorgeous Hun!! I love your Vintage style and that stamp is AWESOME along with all the embellisments and details you added. Sorry I have been so quiet, I have been crazy busy here. I don't hardly ver have s=time to stop and comment anymore. I thought by giving up 2 DT's I would have more time, but no that's not the case.
Oh and to comment on a comment you left about me giving up 2 DT's... No I will NEVER give up Sweet Pea Stamps. They are my FAVORITE STAMPS EVER and Lynette is soooooo good to me and she is the sweetest and most giving person I know. I am so blessed just to be on her DT. Sweet Pea was my first DT and my favorite and Sweet Pea will always come first with me. Then my second favorite is Crafts and Me as they both carry ny favorite kind of stamps.. Fantasy art is my favorite!!!!
Oh don't miss the hop today as there are more stamps to empty your wallet!!lol!! You are probably like me.. you want them ALL..

Hugs Sweetie,
