May challenge inspiration
Hello Rubber Dance aficionados, Craftyfield here guesting again on the blog. I feel honoured to be invited back !
I love the colour scheme for this month's challenge, it is great for a Vintage feel and perfect for my choice of stamp, one of the images from the Antique Botanicals set by Katy Leitch for Rubber Dance.
The background is a 6x6 paper from a Melissa Frances pad, which I have distressed with ink and stamped with portions of the text image from the Collage Mix plate.
I colour matched a white doily (well half a doily!) using Distress inks, to the blue of the challenge.
I decided I wanted to have some vellum (love the stuff, have loads but hardly use it) and cut a fishtail banner to place underneath my image.
A piece of muslin, a length of ribbon, a wood impression button (Trimcrafts Curiosity Corner) and some die-cuts.
I stamped the Camellia and the small flower with Walnut Distress ink, the only dark brown ink I have in my stash.
Distress ink is not the best for detailed stamps and yet the impression is very good which is a testament to the quality of the stamp.
For colouring I used coloured pencils (Derwent) on the Camellia.
Finally I decided to machine stitch a few elements in place and add a stitched border for extra interest.
I do hope I have inspired you to enter the Rubber Dance Challenge!
Keep on crafting,
