Scrapmatts - More Vintage Chippies

Hi Girls,
This month at Scrapmatts I was given some of the gorgeous vintage inspired chippies to play with.  They are so beautifully detailed and are to die for. Sofie and Andrew have also designed some new Printers Trays and a stunning 3D Memory Keeper.   To check them out click on the link HERE.

Tres Jolie
On this LO I have used the Layered Bridge and Birdbaths in mist white, which highlighted in blue ink to add some depth.  My title was jazzed up with Butterflies 03 which I chopped in half and Microchips 15.  These were inked in galaxy gold Brilliance ink.  Lastly I used one of my favs..  the Leaf Spray 01 which are perfect for accenting your flower clusters.

List of Materials:  Scrapmatts Layered Bridge, Birdbaths, Butterflies, Microchips and  Leaf Spray chipboard, Prima KandCo TPC Studio, MME and Graphic 45 pp's, Prima flowers, Glimmermist, Gesso, Brilliance inks

Absolutely Beautful To Me
On my 2nd LO I have used the gorgeous Wicker Chair 03 in mist white and accented with some fussy cut flowers.  The Signboards 02 go beautifully with the vintage chippies.  The sign was backed with a Basic Grey sticker and accented with some fussy cut flowers.  I also swiped some gesso over the sign to add some texture.

List of Materials:  Scrapmatts Wicker Chair and Signboards, Websters and MME pp's, Basis Grey sticker, Craft Queen lace, twine and button, Meg's Garden ribbon, Cheery Lynn doily die, Glitz Design bird stamp, Martha Stewart doily, KandCo rubon,Paper doily, Gesso

Hold Fast To Your Dreams
This month at Berry71Bleu, it is my turn to host the challenge.  Sofie and Andrew were kind enough to sponsor a fab Scrapmatts prize pack for the winner!! The challenge is very simple... all you have to do is add wings of some sort to your project.  I decided to use the new Layered Frame 03 to create a wings inspired project.  I added a thick coat of gesso to the frame, and while it was still wet I sprinkled with some gold micro beads.  The Dress Form 01 was altered with Wings 01 which I backed inked in gold, backed in paper and accented with microbeads.  I then dressed the dress form with ribbon, lace, pp, flower charm and ink.  I cut one of the Butterflies 18 in half, inked in gold and pushed some micro beads into the gaps and used them to frame the Clocks 03.  Lastly I inked with Butterflies 17 chippie in gold and copper Brilliance inks and accented with a vintage button and some Prima bling.

List of Materials:  Scrapmatts chipboard Layered Frame, Dress Form, Clock, Butterflies, Wings, Berry71Bleu vintage tag, Basic Grey Curio and Prima Printery pp's, Kaisercraft die cuts, rubons and pearls, Tim Holtz tickets, MM pagemark, Prima crystal and pearl flourish, Prima flower, mini rose, KandCo typewriter key, metal flower and bee charms, vintage button, crochet doily, lace, ribbon, braid, Viva Ferro paste, Brilliance and Memento inks, gesso, paint.

A Ladies Diary Vintage Cards
Lastly I created 2 vintage cards using some Graphic 45, A Ladies Diary pp's which went perfectly with the Parasols 02 and Benches 03.  I highlighted the chippies with some Gelly Roll Stardust pens.  I used the Assorted Words 10 for my greetings... they are the perfect size for cards.
