Fifth Avenue Floral Meets Vintage

Hi Everyone,

Oh this is so not the norm for me. I’m practicing up on doing Vintage. hehe

Actually this is for a swap I’m in next week and I’m just finishing up with them.

I used the Finial Press Embossing Folder by Stampin’ Up! for the back mat and sponged it a bit with So Saffron. I them cut an oval and stamped it with our Bella Toile Background stamp in Versamark and embossed with White embossing Powder. Sponged the edges with Saffron and More Mustard to give it an old vintage feel.

My Flowers were embossed on Vellum Card Stock and colored on the back side to maintain the softness…..I think that is considered the Stained Glass Technique, then attached with Dimensionals after dying my ribbon to match.

I hope you enjoy my share today…..it’s not my norm…but I’m practicing remember!!!

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you back soon.

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!!
