LaBlanche Muted Vintage Peony & ETA: Winner!


Here's another recent design using the same Basic Grey "Cappella" papers as yesterday...my last one with this pad! I really want to focus on this beautiful LaBlanche "Framed Peony Silicone Stamp" image...it has such a lovely, vintage, botanical appeal.


Easy to color too...you've read my opinion on the LaBlanche stamps before...the built in shadow and highlighting into the image makes for easy color placement. You can see all of the LaBlanche stamps HERE.

My tip for you today: don't be afraid or stress over your markers or coloring...play with them...layer colors. Look at nature, take your cue from colors around you...add them onto your stamped image. Multiple colors are blended to make that beautiful petal in your garden or the wild.

After all, it is only paper and ink...many images may see the trash in the beginning, just give yourself a chance and have fun!

Take a look at the pretty May Art's Pleated Satin Ribbon, layered with May Art's 5/8" Lace and 1/4" Silk ribbon.  A vintage shell button from my mother's button box was used with the silk to tie the bow.







All of the links for today's project are from The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Sharon at The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store is having a BIG sale on Kaisercraft MDF Alterables...check them out HERE.



Here are a couple of projects that I made last year using the Kaisercraft "Stocking Garland," and Kaisercraft "Beyond the Page Bauble Album."

Thanks for stopping by to see my Muted Vintage Peony design! Have a great midweek!
