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
