STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS' CHALLENGE 140: VINTAGE

Another Wednesday, and another shout out from the Stampotique Designers' Challenge Team!  This challenge is brought to you by France Papillon, who is not only a Stampotique Design Team member, but one of their seasoned stamp designers!

Here's what France has to say:
Hello, lovely Stampotiquers, 
Lots of us get so excited when we get our hands on an old ledger, old books, or old family photos even from people we don’t know.  But those are often hard to come by, or very expensive.  Because of that, lots of us became very agile in making new things look old. Using inks, paper distressing tools and yummy techniques.  How about we combine all that love for all things vintage and all those yummy techniques with our favorite stamps, to create a vintage looking Stampotique piece?  Can’t wait to see where that leads you!  Ready?  Create!
While "vintage" is one of my top two favorite themes, I still find it difficult to create something in that vein. To get me inspired, I used a piece of designer scrapbook paper from the Prima Cartographer Collection called "Mots D' Amour."  Vintage also makes me think of the Stampotique image by Jill Penney and Daniel Torrente called "Relaxin'," as I always think of her as a bit of a rebel fasionista!  A quick search for a quote dealing with vintage fashion, and I came full circle to current fashionista Carly Rae Jepson!  Carly is a Canadian recording artist and singer-songwriter from British Columbia, who placed third in 2007 during the Canadian Idol competition (huge American Idol fan here!).  


I hope you will participate in this week's Stampotique Designers' Challenge.  You can read the rules and submit your work here.  At the end of the month, you will be entered into a random drawing for a chance to win one of two $30 gift certificates from Stampotique Originals for any of their products.

Cheers!
