Here's my final piece for THE STAMPING QUEEN'S June samples (yes I know it's July... oops!). I've used one of my favouite Designs Galore images for this piece.

Behind the arch (Collections) is a section of 'Vintage' transparency and 'Vintage Paper' (both by Collections). The chipboard arch has been put through the Cuttlebug using the textile embossing folder (my absolute favourite folder!) and then coloured with ink. A section of rub-on (Kaiser Craft) has been affixed to the Designs Galore image.

Just below the arch I've added a couple of layers of Shabby Chic Vintage Paper (Collections) - distressing the edges with a scissor blade and a touch of ink. To finish it off, I've added a small section of a rub-on scroll design to the papers and added a small flower. The word (Collections) was gently distressed with sandpaper.

The Stamping Queen supplies: Chipboard arch, Vintage Paper, Shabby Chic Paper, Vintage Transparency and word (all by Collections), Vintage lady image (Designs Galore), Rub-ons (Kaiser)

Love the texture on the arch- really sets the image off beautifully and gives it a genuine aged feel.
