Sweet Stamps Challenge- Vintage/Shabby Chic

Our challenge for the Sweet Stamps Blog this week is Vintage/Shabby Chic. 

 I used a Technique Junkies technique called Vintage Wallpaper for my background. I used the Scrollworks embossing plate and Shades dye ink in Sand Castle, Chocolate Delight and Deco Coral on Confetti cardstock.  The image- Cherie is also stamped on Confetti cardstock. I used the Shades dye inks again and water colored carefully. I cut out the image using a die by Nellie Snellen which you can see HERE. I used the Dancing Doily lace border- painted with Chocolate Delight ink in the center. The bow uses Antique White seam binding.

I hope you will join in the challenge!  Every entry qualifies you for a chance to win $20 of items from the store at  Sweet Stamps, and if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will receive an additional chance to win! Please note- there is a limit of 10 challenges for each entry.The winner is chosen by Random.org- so everyone has a chance to win!
