Robyn’s Fetish Weekly Challenge #7

Hi Everyone

Today Robyn's Fetish launches their new weekly challenge on their challenge blog

The challenge this week is a Style Challenge – to make a card/paper crafts project that in either a shabby chic or vintage style or feel to it.

If you would like to take part in the challenge you can find all the details on the challenge blog.  The challenge runs until 12pm EST Friday 27th November and to enter you can either leave a link to your creation in the comments section of the post on the challenge blog or email your project to Donna at  One lucky winner will receive 6 digi stamps of their choosing from the store – you can find the store HERE

As a Design Team member we were set the same challenge too, so here is my take on it

tammy card stitchedFor my card I chose to use the stamp of Tammy – I first coloured her with my Warm Grey copic markers W1, W3, W5 & W7, them I added colour to the image with YG95, RV02, RV04, Eoo, R11, YR23 and RV000.  I then inked over the entire image with Rangers Distress Ink in Old Paper, using the distress inking tool, and then added Antique Linen and Tea Dye to the edges.  I then distressed the edges of the image and inked again with Tea Dye.  I embossed all my cardstock from Coredinations with a Fiskars Texture plate and then sanded it and inked with Distress ink in Shabby Shutters and Tea Dye, I also ran the paper distressing tool along all the edges and inked them with the Tea Dye pad.  I used patterned papers from a K & Company paper pad and distressed, sanded and inked them with the same distress inks.  To add a stitched effect I used some stamps from a Hot off the Press set with Versamark ink and embossed with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress Embossing powders.  To finish the card I used a Woodware border punch, added some grosgrain ribbon that I also inked with distress ink and finally added a charm and a rusty key from my stash.
