Hello and welcome to my fellow Waltzingmouse Stamps Waltzers!
The theme of the blog waltz this month is vintage/shabby chic. Neither of these is my usual style, but I did my best!
First, I took a piece of pink patterned paper (Echo Park) and stamped the birdcage from Asian Gardens onto it using Rouge chalk ink (Colorbox). Then I sponged the edges with Walnut Stain Distress ink (Ranger).
I then cut the aqua piece of patterned paper (Echo Park) using the Label 4 die and stamped the outline using Hawaiian Shores ink (PTI). The sentiment, from Say it With Style, was stamped using Rouge chalk ink.
I die cut a piece of Hawaiian Shores felt using PTI's Mat Stack 1 die and stitched around the edge with my sewing machine. I added a bow, adhered all the layers and gave the whole thing a good spray with some Tattered Angel's gold mist.
Thanks for looking at my project today and I can't wait to see all the beautiful projects!
