The challenge at the Shabby Tea Room this week was this sketch. Desperate to use more of my Magnolia Fairytale stamps; I chose this Tilda and put her in a castle window and thus in my mind "Rapunzel". I am entering this card for the Just Magnolia challenge "Anything goes" and the "Just add Vintage" challenge at Just Add Ink. I hand stamped the background with flowers in Ruby Red then stamped over them with a vintage cracked stamp in So Saffron and then in Basic Grey. I distressed the edges of everything straight!! I made this flower out of wired ribbon bought at the "Stitch and Creative Craft Show" at Shepton Mallett yesterday, where I also bought this fabulous ruby wire ribbon which makes gorgeous bows and this fab vintage look cream organza ribbon adorned with leaves.
On the inside I found the story of Rapunzel and summarised it on my computer and chose an old-fashioned font. I stamped the paper with So Saffron flowers and sponged the edges.
On the back I made a space for an inscription to be written.
