Grandma's Attic

Hello Eveyone and welcome to the final day of the JustRite April Release!!!  Today I'm showcasing a new Background stamp called Grandma's Attic!  Those of you who have been following my posts this week will remember I did a big post about my grandparents - what I didn't mention then is that my Grandma was a Dressmaker for about 70yrs!  She started sewing when she was about 15yrs old and I think she was near 85yrs when she made her last bridal gown!!  I tell you, my Grandma is the most amazing woman!!  :)  Anyway, needless to say this background stamp spoke volumes to me and what better than to add the 'Grandma' sentiment from Vintage Rose Medallions also released this week!!  :)

This is a super easy card to make, a base of Very Vanilla, layered with Old Olive, Chocolate Chip and more Very Vanilla stamped with Grandma's Attic.  I've very lightly coloured elements of the background in YG61, YG63 and YG67 Copic Markers.  Down the left side I've attached some green satin ribbon and topped it with some cream lace.  The sentiment is from Vintage Rose Medallions, made into a notched tag and secured with a blossom (which was a spare white one on my desk that I airbrushed with E53 Copic to match) made with Bitty Blossom Shapeabilities and leaves made with Foliage Shapeabilities.

Stamps - Grandma's Attic, Vintage Rose Medallions (JustRite)
Paper - Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Chocolate chip
