Just For Me

I recently received some fabulous goodies from the lovely Pat of Pip's Pastimes (a big thank you Pat) and amongst them was a Crafty Individuals stamp which I used for this card. Also over at Vintage Stamping they have a challenge to have a play around and make something just for yourself so that's what I decided to do. Now to me this stamp cries out vintage / distressed but as this is a style I can't seem to master I decided to have a play and see what I could come up with and also have my first venture with paper piecing.

I stamped the image with black ink and coloured the hair / skin / shoes with Promarkers and used Dovecraft Back to Basics paper to paper piece the dress and for the background. The doiley, gold peel-off corner, ribbon and gems are all from my stash. So this is what I ended up with and okay I know it's not vintage but CAS is more me.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Vintage Stamping challenge 'Just for you'
Allsorts challenge 'Pretty in pink'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'Pretty in pink' (my 2nd entry)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge 'Monochrome' (my 2nd entry)

Thanks for popping by and I'd love it if you could take the time to leave me a comment
