Challenge 7 over at Make my Monday is still following the vintage/shabby chic route.
This time the challenge is to include crumpled or torn papers.
So to begin I used some base papers, Prima I think.  The vellum was torn, then embossed though  the big shot. , I used sandpaper over the surface to distress it a bit. Next a page from an old book, coloured with Antique linen and Shabby shutters distress inks.
The stamps are Darkroom door, Maud, looks real stylish in this outfit I think.
The rosette was made from a scrap of vellum and the rest of the trimmings came from my stash.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate you calling.
