Craft-Room Fashion

It's been a bit of a merry go round here recently not sure if I'm coming or going!   A new Gym has opened in town and yes I've joined and yes I have been going! All these young girls hardly breaking a sweat as they pedal gracefully and looking at everything going on around them!!! Then there is this mature, fat woman dripping and redder than a beetroot LOL It's rather nice to be back in that groove, wonder if I'll lose weight.

Still between all this exercise and working crafting is still top of the list at home!    We have a new challenge for you over at Craft-Room Challenge  the theme this time is Fashion, chosen by Hazel.   We are sponsored by a new brand on the block Flonz!    They have a terrific range of stamps and very generously allowed all the team to select one or two to use.    Polymer stamps with lots of detail that impress well.


I've used Vintage Fashion Girls - Twenties 02 stamped onto a tag that had been coloured with DI's and those fabby Ink Dusters.   The girls have been coloured with Pro-Markers.   The DL card has a DP torn layer and DI's over the top.    A piece of the same paper used to make a pocket to hold the tag.

As always our amazing and talented team have made beautiful samples to inspire you all, as Hazel says we all love Fashion.   What are your favourite fashion styles/statements you'll find lots of inspiration over at The Craft-Room Challenge and we would love to see your fashion pieces.

Part of the fun is of course discovering other challenge's that our projects might fit with, or which might inspire our work.   I am entering this card into 
Amusing Challenges - Use a tag!
Suger Creek Hollow - Something old (the DP is years old) Something New (The Flonz stamp is of course brand new)
Not a long list but very select.

  2. Good morning Zoe,

    Great minds and all that, I too have joined a gym although I can't manage anything other than the pool, but decided any exercise has to be good. Like you seen the superfit as well, in the half-hour it took me to struggle with my 40 lengths yesterday, one superfit youngster ethically finished a hundred in 2 min less.

    Onto your card, I can see these lovely vintage ladies from Flonz appeal to you as much they do me, you have made a lovely piece with them.
