Make My Monday - Challenge 7 - Vintage Shabby Chic, Torn or Crumpled

I've been waiting all week for another Monday to roll around to see what the next challenge was over at Make My Monday. I was not disappointed. Challenge 7 is Vintage Shabby Chic, Torn or Crumpled. For my main image, I chose this vintage stamp by Inkadinkado and inked it in Pumice Distress Ink for a softer feel and then shaded the stamped image with Spun Pink Distress Ink. I matted the image with a torn background paper also distressed the edges of the matting with Spun Pink Distress Ink. The flowers by Artistic Outpost at the bottom are also stamped in Pumice. I added lace, trim, a piece of a page of a very old book, which I crumpled up and smoothed out. The piece of the page was a little too big so I tore off a couple of pieces. I stamped both of the pieces I tore off with the words "Inspire" and "Hope" in Peeled Paint Distress Ink. Other embellishments included pink German Scrap, vintage buttons and pearls. Can't wait to see wait to see what everyone else comes up with! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for leaving a comment. I really appreciate it. Yvonne
