Hand Stamped Sentiments 306

The colour challenge this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments was just too pretty to pass up.

It's such a rich combination that I started to think I'd like to make something with a vintage feel. I started with the new Crackle Paint background stamp and lightly sponged the edges before stamping on the beautiful bouquet from Very Vintage. This set is a hostess set, so is available to party hostesses or individual customers where sales are over $350. I coloured the images with ink, a blender pen and some clear Wink of Stella.

The pretty little lacy edge is from the new Doily Builder thinlits. The pearls have been coloured with a Petal Pink Stampin' Blend.
