Paperplay Distress It!

From the PaperPlay blog:

This week's challenge is set by Mandy.. and yes, it's DISTRESSING!! So, the challenge is

"stamped vintage"... use a stamped image to create an oldie feel project!

Have fun, and get distressed!!!! :)

This is so not my style - I wasn't even sure that I had a stamp which would give a vintage-y feel! Anyhow, I'm quite pleased with the final outcome...

Ok, I'm officially a week behind with these, but hey, it's done now!

From the PaperPlay blog:

This weeks challenge is to use one and only one each of these in your creation -

1. Patterned Paper
2. Button
3. Blossom/Flower

You can use cardstock and anything else you wish but you must have one of each from the list.

So here's mine...

Paperplay Monochrome

From the Paperplay website:
"MONOCHROME= " images in neutral colors are also known as grayscale or black-and-white"

"This weeks challenge (set by Jackie) is to create something using mainly Black and White, you can use colours too but they must be kept to a minimum."

Only just managed to get this one done in time! This stamp only arrived from Elzybells at the beginning of the week but I think it's going to be a favourite!
