One of the very first things that drew me to Cornish Heritage Farms was the range of background stamps. I may have a phobia of patterned paper but give me a background stamp and I'm happy. Nope, makes no sense to me either!
I've gone shabby chic with this latest release, Vintage Chintz. I decided to play up the fabric connection by using the faux linen technique. This is an easy way to add texture and variation to a stamped piece - just stamp on glossy cardstock and then use sandpaper first vertically and then horizontally to create the linen "weave". Sponge on a lighter ink colour to provide extra variation and interest.
Of course the fashionista ladies seemed like a perfect choice for a fabric-inspired piece! I love this sophisticated pair.
