Good morning krafty friends and welcome to our weekly challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! I am your hostess this week and my challenge theme is a personal favourite: Vintage/Distress!
Most people who know me are well aware of my love for all things vintage. Whether it's papers or embellishments, if it has a vintage feel, I'm all over it!
For this challenge, I first chose the gorgeous clear stamp set Teacup Fairy by Krafty artist Annie Rodrigue. I then started looking through my papers and found the perfect pad from Graphic 45. Not only did it already have a vintage appearance, but it was also tea themed!! I selected this sheet with the teapot and a beautiful friendship sentiment already included on the paper. Teacup Fairy also comes with several great coordinating sentiments. I distressed my paper edges and added a few embellishments. The fairy was stamped and coloured in Copics. I stamped the teacup on some patterned paper and added shading before piecing them together. Her wings were given a little sparkle with a Wink of Stella marker.
