Fresh Vintage for SSC237

Doesn't "Fresh Vintage" seem like a bit of an oxymoron?  I got thinking about it tonight and wondered about that.  It doesn't really matter because, either way, I love the stamp set and the "matching" Everyday Enchantment papers that can be found in the upcoming Sale-a-bration catalogue.  I'm really being challenged to use colours that I wasn't particularly keen on previously, like Poppy Parade and Calypso Coral.

For tonight's post I drew on Stampin' 411's Saturday Sketch Challenge 237 sketch.  Here's is what I came up with:

Lots of "antiquing" with Soft Suede ink and lots of distressed edges in this one....again.  I'm going through a phase : )

I selectively coloured the stamp to match the Designer paper....although in retrospect I suppose I could have just used the Designer paper itself.


Although it is hard to see here, I "antiqued" the Poppy Parade strip with Soft Suede as well.

Here are the details:

Stamp Sets:  Fresh Vintage (SAB 2012), Three Little Words

Papers:  Everyday Enchantment DSP (SAB 2012), Calypso Coral CS, Poppy Parade CS, Soft Suede CS, Pool Party CS, Very Vanilla CS

Inks:  Soft Suede, Poppy Parade, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Peach Parfait

Accessories/Embellishments:  Designer Frames Textured Embossing Folder, Vintage Wallpaper Textured Embossing Folder.

Happy Stamping!
