City Crafter Challenge #67 July 2011

Welcome to my blog!

Judy FordI am having so much fun finding all sorts of card challenges!

Today's card is for the challenge at

Vintage Garden

I thought of this stamp immediately!

I was fortunate to find it at a

Betty Brett Swarm - Stash Sale

Also thanks to Betty Bee's copics classes I have the confidence to tackle such a large stamp.

Tip: when stamping these big stamps put your paper on a foam sheet or stack of cardstock. The extra cushion helps to get a clean all over stamp! Another tip from Betty is to use Georgia Pacific cardstock. Nice and smooth for good images!

I used an exactknife to cut the lady away from the background.

My original plan was to just mount her on black cardstock

and use my scissors to do a shadow cut around...

then I thought vintage and went into my quilting stash

and found this pretty lace piece.

I'm pleased with the way she turned out!

Thanks for looking!
