Vintage florals from Inkylicious

 Thanks for all your lovely comments about Sunday- much appreciated! I hope you managed to enjoy the show, even though it didn't get it's second airing at 11 pm. As promised here are my samples using the new Floral Etchings stamps from Inkylicious. My first uses chipped sapphire distress ink, a variety of spellbinder dies and some card candy. the damask background got used again too!
 Next up I stamped on watercolour paper with versafine sepia and coloured with distress markers and a water brush.
 This one was stamped on silk art card and coloured with distress markers. I dusted tea dye on the panel and Victorian velvet and bundled sage on the base card.
 More distress markers and silk art card, and over a piece of crumpled sprayed paper ...
 The silk art card again, and this time I coloured the stamp with my distress markers.
 Now I think this one is my favourite, in fact I am going to make another to hang on my wall! I think Dawn Bibby liked it too!
Finally another one layer clean and simple study in Versafine Olympia green.
With quite a lot of these I used the worn paint background-I will be back soon with my samples using it. I LOVE it - such a versatile stamp!
Thanks for looking!

I have to agree with Deby that you captured a wonderfully Victoriana feel in your samples Sal and it's impossible to choose a favourite as they are all stunning.

Just stunning....they are very lucky to have you creating such wonderful samples for them x

I think the first has to be my favourite - the way the whole design gels & your gorgeous die-cuts accenting the ribbon & focal image matting. Reminds me of Blue Delft too. You've certainly had your hands full with these & I can see why you're going to hang your favourite up for yourself....... Brenda's right - hard to choose a favourite but I did just manage it.

Absolutely beautiful set of cards, Sally! I do like the blue one, but also the third one, and the "home" one so, like Brenda, can't possibly choose a favourite! x

Your designs using these stamps are absolutely perfect in style. |Your colouring on them is wonderful and that worn paint stamp is so effective. Simply gorgeous, every one.
