Crafty Secrets Challenge

Vintage Beach Crafty Secrets 2

I was invited by Darlene (akronstamperdp) to participate in a Crafty Secrets challenge going on at SCS; I love all the vintage things that Crafty Secrets has, so I thought I would combine it with today's Sketch Challenge.

Anyway, the image is a fabric piece from Cotton Scraps sewn onto a distressed piece of Certainly Celery. That is mounted on a piece of Basic Grey's Lily Kate, also stitched along the edge. The background is a piece of K&Co's Roam Mat Pad, stamped in Sage Shadow with Tres Chic. I added some ribbon, lace and antique buttons from my stash, then stamped a shell from Impression Obsession's Nautical set. The words are also fabric from the same Cotton Scraps piece. I will probably use this as a birthday card.

  • Stamps: Tres Chic, Nautical (Impression Obsession)
  • Paper: Confetti Cream, K&Co Roam, BasicGrey Lily Kate, Certainly Celery
  • Ink: Creamy Caramel, Sage Shadow, Barely Banana
  • Acc: Ribbon, Lace, Buttons, Dimensionals, Cotton Scraps, Sewing Machine

Thanks for visiting today, have a blessed day!
