vintage at Creative Inspirations

Hello lovelies - how are you? I hope you are well! Thanks for all your comments yesterday! You are very kind! And our trip to the garden centre was lovely - I managed to get a few plants and had a very naughty cake - yum! Mum and dad enjoyed it too - I think they could have spent a fortune!

This week's challenge at creative Inspirations  is Vintage / Shabby Chic!
All you need to do is include this style on your creations!

This week we are joined by a brand new sponsor called LIVE & LOVE CRAFTS!
They have a beautiful on-line store full of gorgeous crafting goodies!


They are giving this week's winner a £10 STORE VOUCHER!


I made a Mothers day card using the vintage sewing plate from Crafty Individuals and an embossalicious embossing folder.

The card is 8x8 and I've embossed a piece of centura pearl card then rubbed gently with tea die DI. I've stamped around the edges using a sewing stamp after rubbing the DI into the edges to distress it. I added some lace from Crafty Individuals then stamped the images.


Both have been stamped in sepia archival then distressed around the edges. I added more lace around the main corset image and added a TH pen nib butterfly in the top left corner.



The other corset is from Crafty Emblies and has been coloured with distress stain and added. I have also added two Wendy Vecchi buttons.

I'd like to enter this mothers day card into the following challenges:
