Happy Saturday! It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. Mervi is the host this week and she selected "Vintage" as her optional theme. We would love to see you create something with the theme in mind but as always it's just an option and you may share all your new crafty makes for a chance to win one of our wonderful prizes or to be selected in the Top 5. Prizes for the October challenges come from Stamp Addicts, Oakwood, Highlight Crafts, Ruth Hamilton Design, AALL and Create and Craft Stash and winners will be announced on the last Friday of the month.
I started out by inking an acrylic block with Antique Linen Oxide ink and stamped this onto the cardstock. When this was dry I stamped the rose from the Penny Black set All Abloom. I colored with Distress inks in shades of brown and green. The script/postmark is a stamp from Just for Fun Rubberstamps (no longer in business) and the sentiment is a sticker from a Tim Holtz Small Talk booklet. The sentiments come in black and white, this one was white but I inked it with Distress ink. Some diluted ink spatter, distressed edges and jute twine finish off the card.
I plan to share with these challenges:
- Penny Black Saturday - PB stamps
- Fab n Funky - Coloring
- Little Red Wagon - Fall Colors
- The Crafty Addicts - AG

- Beautiful Blossoms Challenge - AG with Flowers
