Monthly Challenge May 2021

All the three cards today are vintage or shabby chic themed today .

For the first card I used the flower stamp “You are in my thoughts” and watercolored it using some tombows and then mounted it with some foam tape on a watercolor paper. Before I mounted the fussy cut stamped flower I used a background stamp I had in my stash and stamped the whole card panel in light vintage distress oxide .

Once I distress the edges of the watercolored card stock with a distress tool (you can slso use the blades of the scissors.) I pasted the whole thing a little obliquely on the card. It gives a very worn and vintage look to the card.

For the second card I used some of the pattern papers from the felicity collection of craftangles and combined it with some flowers and some Craftangle chipboards.

For the final card I used the flower stamp and painted it with shades of brown and simply mounted it with lace and chip board on the kraft cardstock by craftangles.
