MAIL TIME AT FASHIONABLE STAMPING!


Hi peeps - hope you are well, and enjoying the hot UK weather. 
This is a short post tonight - I have just made it in time for the 
 current challenge at Fashionable Stamping.  
The theme is "Mail Time", so anything to do with post cards, stamps etc.  
I would have posted this earlier, but Hubby and I have been to see the musical "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert" this evening at the Leeds Grand Theatre, starring Jason Donovan. Fantastic music, costumes and cast - absolutely brilliant!



Recipe:-
Crafty Individuals postcard stamp.
Sweet Moments sentiment - Stampin' Up.
With Love - Papermania Chatsworth stamp set.
Crafty Secrets "French Mail" stamp set.
Base card - Stampin' Up Pool Party.
Distress Inks - Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo.
Archival Coffee ink.
Flowers coloured with Copics. 
Spellbinders die - Fleur de Lis Squares.
Definition of "Mail" torn from my very old school dictionary.
Edges distressed with scissors. 
*****
I would also like to enter the Craftroom Challenge - "Vintage Stamping".

Thanks for popping by ~ Have a happy weekend ~ 
Hugs,

Hi Sylvia. Gorgeous vintage card. Beautiful collage of stamps ... love the sponging and distressed edges. The blue flowers just pop off the neutral backdrop - fabulous design. Loll xx

This is gorgeous Sylvia. I have that Spellbinders die and have hardly used it but I'm seeing it in a new light now.
Glad you enjoyed the show. It must have been brilliant. Only saw the film for the first time a couple of weeks ago when I went to visit my daughter in Luton.

Great vintage look Sylvia, I love the vintage style. Glad u enjoyed the theatre, I love going to the theatre, especially in London when we go down for a short brek. Dee x

Kathleen said...

Another stunner Sylvia, the distressing inks look a golden colour on my monitor and make a fabulous background for the gorgeous shade of the flowers and the main card stock.
Don't laugh, but for some reason I I thought you lived in Hull!? No idea where I got that from. So when you said you'd been to Leeds to the Theatre, I thought that's a bit of a way to come, so checked your profile and doh, not that far for you to have come lol.
