Lots of Layers with Vintage Stamping Challenge

Hello Dreamers!
It is time for a new challenge over on the Vintage Stamping Challenge Blog!
The theme for the month of March is:

Lots of Layers  

At least 3 layers, please, on your project with stamping (no digis).  The challenge is sponsored by Flonz Craft Stamps and one lucky person will win a $15 gift certificate to the store.

I used a beautiful Flonz Craft stamp for my Lots of Layers project.

Materials List:
Stamp: Flowers Engraving from Flonz Craft stamps
Ink: Black Dye Memento
CS: Glossy White; Pink; Black; Peach
Hand made Background paper
Corner Punch from Martha Stewart
Paper Doily
Fabric Strips

Make It:

  • Make a card from pink CS
  • Wrap Fabric strip around a layer of background paper--this paper was made with a mono printing plate, stencils, embossing folder, and acrylic paints.  (Decorative paper could be substituted)
  • Tie fabric in a bow
  • Add the peach CS strip and paper doily

  • Stamp the Flower Engraving stamp on glossy CS with black ink
  • Add a layer of pink and black CS
  • Punch the corners on a rectangle of black CS
  • Glue the stamped piece to the black rectangle and add to the card

So, let's see, that would be eight layers for this card.  Oh, how I like to layer.  LOL.  Take our challenge!! Link your project up on the blog--- can't wait to see what you come up with!!  Have a super day!
