Have you heard that Lisa (co-founder of SSIC) has opened her own store? Did you know that Nina Bracket is now going to be designing for her? Were you aware that Little Frieda is just at her store? Oh Yeah!
For this card I used 3 stamps sets from TCM (The Craft's Meow). First I stamped the gate and roses, then colored the image and distressed the entire pane. I sponged distress inks over the panel several times wetting in between sponging. Then I cut it out rather raggedly and curled over the edges to make it look REALLY old! Frieda was stamped, colored with Copics and cut out. I also fussy cut the flowers again and popped them up a bit. I left the background panel plain, other then distressing, and placed the embossed lace stamped image just behind Frieda. Added the sentiment and the buttons and there she is!
On May 1st TCM will have some new additions too - can't wait to see what she will have for us! I am so excited and you should be too.
