A vintage hanger
I made this little vintage hanger for friends in Holland - they just got blessed with their second little girl, hence the picture of the two little girls on the image. I stamped the image (see little picture on the right - it is an Anna Griffin stamp from the Rose collection) on glossy paper with embossing ink from Rangers, let it dry and then sponged over the top with distress inks - broken china, walnut stain and shabby shutters.
How I love these inks. I then rubbed over the top with a tissue to smoothen out the lines. I have a sentiment stamp 'Dream a little dream' that I received once with an order from Crafty Individuals and I use it alot - it kind of gives me a satisfied 'finished' feeling to a card.
I was also happy to see my inchie-arch in the latest Stampers Sampler but not only that, in the same category were cards from my blogging friends too - Louise and Suzanne - a big congrats!! If you click on their names you can see their work.
