Vintage Lady Stamped Card

A Stamped Vintage Lady card, the card base is a pre printed A4 card folded in half, I still love Vintage cards and often drift back to this style when I need some inspiration, I love working with inks and getting my hands dirty, so, Tuesday I will be going to work sporting green inky fingers.


The lady is a rubber stamp by Stampsmith she is one of Shakespeare Heroins, I used green distress ink by Ranger to stamp the image then tore around the edges and used the same ink to distress by ponging the ink on the edges of the image.

It was this stamp that inspired the card as I think she is just so beautiful.


I punched out some flower shapes in cream and green card then used wet glue on the petals and dipped them into crushed glass glitter, I have 2lbs in weight of this glitter to use up ha ha ha.




This is a rubber stamp flower stamped onto acetate then cut out, I then wrapped the threaded beads onto a large gold brad and then poked the brad through the acetate and secured the beaded flower onto the card with a glue dot.
