Fussy & Fancy Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Today and for the next fortnight their Fabulous Challenge over at Fussy & Fancy begins and the theme is VINTAGE...chosen by me!!! Our Fantastic sponsor is Live & Love Crafts you can find them HERE... Their shop is packed with wonderful goodies.. We are looking forward to all your fabulous vintage creations so pop over and join us...See You There!!



I used some Graphic 45 papers (A ladies diary collection) plus newsprint papers from SU for the base...The sentiment is also from SU... the flower I cut from Tim Holtz's tattered flower die I used some muslin cloth then I sprayed with starch and crumpled up and left to dry...I was very happy with the result.. The centre piece is from an old bracelet I bought at a car boot sale for 25pence and there was 8 of this on it.(bargain)  the string & pearls are from my stash...

Thank you so much for your visit today...Enjoy the Challenge x x x

Stunning May, vintage perfection!! I absolutely love that flower, what a great idea to spray it with starch so it holds it shape. (would love to know where you got the starch, chemist?) the center of the flower looks wonderful too, that was a lucky find! The whole thing is stunning!

OH what a stunning piece, dear May-
the flower is amazing, and your idea of using the Starch--which I think I can`t find here----... is GREAT!!
The papers and lace you used with the string and the tag, creates a gorgeous piece.

Vintage is my thing too and I love the way you have made your card. Gorgeous papers.
A beautiful flower - did you spray it with the spray starch from the supermarket???

I'm following you - I thought I already was.... I don't want to miss what you're doing and hope I may be able to join in!
Hugs
