He Looks Too Good To Be True

Vintage Stamping Challenges has a Summer Days challenge theme this month which was our lovely teamie sister Claire’s choice.

This is my DT piece for the challenge a Summer Album.  The hunky man on the front is a stamp from Flonzcrafts which I gently coloured with distress markers.  I say gently because it was stamped onto a very flimsy cream paper lace doily which is from the Docrafts range.  Masked him off then added dimensional paste through a TH stencil called Burlap.  Added some Worn Lipstick ink then topped off with gilding wax called Rose Quartz.  It has given the paste such a polished lustre which you can only see in real life.  Papers used are from a Prima pad called Stationer’s Desk.

My inside cover page of the album has a stamped border of roses which were inked with  Black Versafine then coloured in with Faber Castelle watercolour pencils.  The woman painter was also coloured the same way, you can find her here.  The same ink pad was used for the quote before framing and cutting out.

Six envelopes were used to make this album with the stacking binding system.  Another of Flonzcrafts stamps was used for the back of the album which is here.

    Fantastic album Shirley, great having the image stamped on the doily, makes you think the hunk has a softer side.

    Hi Shirley. I love how you have the feminine half and the male half and each blends in so effortlessly. And the roses on the doily bring both sides together…nice touch! My favourite page is the woman with the roses and tickets…maybe that’s me buying tickets to England!!! Nice thought!

    The hunk is a brilliant vintage image, love the soft colouring and texture on the doily (must get myself some of those…). The other pages are just as pretty, love it!

    bunch when he froze to death centuries back. It also enhances feet flexes as well as down-hill braking, and yes it features aluminum shank to supply more
