Got a little grunge-vintage thing going on here that turned out kind of fun. I had made a bunch of signs for my Hostess Appreciation event with the Broadsheet Alphabet set, and when the evening was over, I hated to just toss them. So I turned them into cards!
First, I stamped additional letters all over the front of the sign, in all different directions, so that the original words were obscured. Then I added a few of the fun images from my good old favorite Chic Boutique stamp set, and a lot of heavy sponging. This is all Basic Gray on Rose Red, by the way.
I wanted to use the tulle and the pearls, so I had to sponge the Newsprint DSP heavily enough to disguise the fact that it is Very Vanilla. I don't care what fashion trends come and go, I just have a hard time pairing white and off white! Love the flirty edge of the white Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch peeking out from behind the torn edge, like a petticoat.
You can see the Shimmer Spray (I can't help myself!) and I also added some Smooch Accent ink to the Eiffel Tower, and around the sentiment, too. Where did I get that cool punch? It's not a punch! It's two of the labels from the Matchbox XL die for the Big Shot.
All of these items are available for purchase on my shopping website, www.lyssa.stampinup.net and I'd be happy to answer any questions you might have. The recipe for Shimmer Spray is here. Happy stamping!
