Hello my blogging friends. I hope you are enjoying your weekend. I am having a nice time today playing with my NEW TOYS! Recently, I made a purchase from the UK of Paula Walters Designs at Which Craft? One of the items I purchased was a kit of a Fabulous Die Cut and Scored Bespoke VINTAGE Step Card. In the kit are 6 Vintage Step Cards, 4 Plain Bespoke Vintage Frames, 4 Frilled aperture Bespoke Frames, 4 Plain aperture Frames, 6 Bespoke base & side edge plates, 6 x 2 Mirror mage Decorative Flourishes and Envelopes. All you have to do is stamp your images and cut and mount them.

For my creation i chose StampScapes Stamps. I stamped my images in SU Soft Suede ink. Then using my SU markers and ink pads with daubers I colored my scene. I added a little white gel pen for highlights. I distressed with edges of my frames with SU Soft Suede and a dauber. I embossed with the SU Woodgrain ef. then added some distressing with SU Soft Suede and Old Olive with a dauber.

So are you ready now???

TA DA!!!
If you've got anything good or bad to say about this I'd love to hear it! Any suggestions on how to improve it would be welcome as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I'm so impressed with all of your gorgeous creations.

I hadn't seen any of these vintage step cards & bespoke frames before, so I made the mistake of checking out the website for Which Craft. Darn you for being an enabler! I love Stampscapes, and these two together are amazing. You have such a great eye for color. Your water and rocks look great the way you colored them. You can really see where the deeper water is due to your darker colors. Your highlighting with the gel pen adds motion to the scene. The only thing I'm not sure about is extending the scene all of the way to the edges of the card. Maybbe just keeping the scene within the middle frame would make it look more finished. Your color choices really fit so well with this scene. Great work!
