Pattern Play Day 2
I decided to challenge myself and try a shabby-vintage style, which is very difficult for me. I stamped the Medallion stamp from Stampin' Up on some text paper from a My Mind's Eye Lost and Found 6 x 6 pad, embossed it in clear, and then inked it up with tattered rose, victorian velvet, worn lipstick, and tea dye Distress Inks. I added a bit of crocheted lace, some seam binding, and a tag and tiny hearts from the Tiny Tags set by Papertrey Ink.
I am also uploading this card to this week's Make it Monday #108 challenge at Papertrey Ink, since it is also an inked background challenge.
In addition to the inked background technique, I played with paper piecing. I used the Year of Flowers: Daffodil set from Papertrey Ink.
That wraps up Pattern Play Day 2! Thanks for stopping by!
