In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're exploring the lush vintage style. Please visit the MFT Blog to see exactly what we've been up to, you'll find a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!
One of the things I love most about designing for MFT is the wide range of stamp lines and styles we get to work with. There really is something for every taste and today we're focusing on vintage sensibilities!
I've used the new Vintage Cameo set, along with the matching Oval Decorative Doily, Faux Crochet Border and some rolled flowers - Mini Rolled Roses and the Rolled Mum.
I kept my card mostly neutral with a hint of yellow. Once I had stamped and cut my cameo piece, I layered it heavily with some Rock Candy crackle distress paint from Ranger, it curls as it dries so I place it under something heavy once it's completely dry to even the peice out. This time I left a little of the curl in to add to the distressed look.
I used Scattered Straw distress ink to sponge my papers, edges and flowers.
Inside my card I went for a clean and elegant look, repeating the cameo stamp.
Here are the Die-namics I've used today:
