Cherish the Adventure

The weeks are just flying by! It is hard to believe it is time once again for another challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenge.  This time around, the challenge is to "Mask It."  The interpretation is up to you.  I chose to use Dylusions Stencils for the background of my card.  I worked with Vintage Photo and Pumice Stone Distress Inks.  After preparing the background, I stamped several images from Crafty Individuals with Black StazOn ink.  The focal image, Clip Art by Crafty Individuals, was matted with white card stock, distressed and mounted to the card front with Kraft  Photo Corners.   Embellishments include snippets of lace, buttons, vintage text page, ChitChat stickers, vintage seam binding, burlap string, Liquid Pearls and a metal charm.  I hope you will consider creating a project for  a possible prize.  There is some really great inspiration by my Design Team sisters over at FSC. May they inspire you! Best wishes, Yvonne
