**VINTAGE** New Challenge With Crafty Creations!!

Happy Hump Day!!  It's time for a new challenge with Crafty Creations and this fortnight our theme is VINTAGE!!!

Our lovely sponsor is Whiff of Joy Stamps, and they're giving our lucky winner this adorable stamp set!

I love vintage so I had some great stamps in my stash to work with.  This card also marks the first time I tea dyed cardstock.  I LOVE how it turned out!  I'll definitely be doing that again.  It was super easy too.  I'd read all kinds of tutorials about brewing it with salted water and I wasn't down for that, so I made myself a cup of tea and when it was brewed, took the wet teabag out and let it cool for a bit.  When it was room temp I just picked it up and rubbed it over my cardstock, front and back.  Then I wrapped the cardstock in a paper towel to absorb the excess and let it dry between a stack of magazines.  Can't wait to do it with some tags.


I'm just entering a few challenges:



Be sure to check out the blog and see what everyone else created.  Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!

  4. This is fabulous and I may have to follow your lead for the teabag trick! I've also been somewhat intimidated to try the process but you made it sound so easy! I read you wrote you've used stamps but for the life of me, I cannot figure out which elements are the stamps! lol Fitztown requires digital elements but nonetheless thanks for joining us at Fitztown Challenge Blog. Hope to see you again!
