Something different

Oh how I think Wendy Vecchi makes the most beautiful art. At Stamperama on Sunday I looked at a lot of her stamps, my gosh they're expensive. Simon says stamp and show's theme was something in the style of Wendy Vecchi. So without stamps I had to go for style.
So i cut a piece of card with a nestie and coloured it using antigue linen, rusty hinge and vintage photo distress inks. I then overstamped this with a flower background stamp.
I cut out a smaller nestie, inked it in the same colours and added an adage ticket.
The flower was stamped and then inked and I used one of those hat pin things (what are they called?) for the flower middle.

I like it and I hope you do too.


  1. Fabulous card Ally love the colours you've used the way you've overstamped the flower and the ticket in the hat pin - brilliant x Hilda
