Quintessentially English rubber stamps, with unique and highly detailed deep etched designs – all made in England. IndigoBlu stamps have been featured on Create and Craft a few weeks ago.
Here is my DT card for this challenge. I generally go for the usual red for Valentine's but decided to go vintage this time and do something a bit different.
The rose and lattice frame and sentiment are creative expressions stamps which I coloured using Tattered Rose and Walnut Stain distress inks. I've used Tim Holtz's heart wings die and the metal embellishments are from his ideology range. Builders scrim and string add to the grungy effect and the papers which I have distressed with a craft knife, are from my stash. The faux screw brads are creative expressions. The stamps, dies, inks, ideology and brads are all available from The Craft Den.
I added a concertina butterfly using the music paper and distressing it with vintage photo distress ink. This is a fab template that I was kindly given by Shirley Chillman and she has a tutorial on her blog here
