Introducing Sandra our New Design Team Member

Hello everyone, today we are introducing our second new Design Team member, Sandra South. We asked Sandra to tell us a little bit about herself so that you can get to know her a little better:

Hi, my name is Sandra. Originally from Worcester, I have lived in Abergavenny, South Wales since I married in 1982. I have two sons 26 and 30, who have flown the nest, enabling me to have a lovely craft space!
I like a lot of crafts, but stamping is my favourite. I'll have a go at most styles when it comes to stamping, Clean and simple right through to grungy and Steampunk. Depends on my mood that day! my first set of stamps from Chocolate Baroque was Christmas Flourish and it still features in my Christmas cards each year.

For my first post as a Design Team member I am sharing a vintage themed card made with Rose Stem Script.

I made a background using Distress Inks Antique Linen and Tea Dye. I then stamped the image with an Archival Ink. I used a stamping platform and this enabled me to re-stamp with Versamark, but just in a few areas which I then embossed with copper embossing powder.

Using Distress Inks Tea Dye and Vintage Photo and a water brush I coloured the image in. I used Vintage Photo to add some splahes and blend around the edges. I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of card that had the same background and cut the words out. I mat and layered the card and added the photo corners.
Thanks for looking,
