Good morning all.
I'm back today to share a card I made for the DT over at Cardz4Galz.
This week our theme is
VINTAGE or SHABBY CHIC
I'm not very good with shabby chic so I went down the vintage route, it also allowed me to keep the design pretty CAS!
I picked up this stamp with a magazine awhile ago, loved all the Art Deco stamps based around the designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. For those of you who don't know he was an architect and designer from the Glasgow school working at the the turn of the 19th Century. I love his designs, they must have come as a bit of a shock to the overblown, blousey Victorians!
He is famous for his black furniture as well so I used his tall ladder back chairs as an inspiration for this card shape and layout, adding strips of black to evoke them. .
I stamped the panel then heat embossed in black to give a stained glass feel then used DIs in a watercolour style to add a little colour.
So for more Vintage/Shabby Chic inspiration, please check out the rest of our fab DT over on the main blog.
I'd like to join in over at -
