I hope you're not bored of my Stampin' Framed yet, because I have another one for you today! This one has a vintage feel to it...
For this one I dug out one of my favourite retired stamps, Elements of Style. When I say retired, I mean retired as a 'real' stamp...it is still available on MDS, for only £2.95! That's the great thing about MDS...nothing retires! I stamped the background by inking up En Francis using a sponge, so I could get a slightly distressed feel to the stamping. I also stamped it off before I stamped it here...that gives a softer print.
I then over stamped the flowers from Elements of Style, in Pool Party ink (after also stamping off first). The little Hummingbird is also stamped in Pool Party, and the sentiment in Soft Suede. I inked all my edges to give an even more distressed, vintage feel, even on the Pool Party mount. I finished with 3 tiny nail art pearls on the sentiment, which I think you can just about see!
As much as I love making these, I really do need to figure out how to photograph them without getting shadows and reflections!

I had a little visit to Ikea this weekend to finish spending the gift card they so kindly gave me after I got stuck in the lift...needless to say, I didn't use the lift! I did get some more frames though, so I should be busy for a while ;)
Anyway, have a lovely Monday and see you tomorrow!
