TRR Challenge #38 'Damask Delight'

Welcome friends to another fun fortnightly challenge at The Ribbon Reel!  It's Debbie's turn to host this week and she has chosen this beautiful inspiration photo .....



and ask that you create a card/project inspired by the NEUTRAL PALETTE in the photo
and include A DAMASK PATTERN, LACE / RIBBONS

Here is my card...


I wanted to have a go at creating a card without patterned paper and dug through my stamps to find this beautiful damask background stamp from Darkroom Door. 


The damask stamp was inked with Versamagic Sahara Sand on to white cardstock.  I used my trusty tape gun to stick it onto a kraft card.  The central label was created with my nesties with kraft and white cardstock.  The sentiment is from WMS also inked with Sahara Sand.  I sprayed Crushed Shell Glimmer Mist on to some Cameo Beige seam binding and tied a double bow and added a couple of mocha beige cherry blossom and an ivory tea rose.  Oh and a few pearls!


Yesterday I spent the day putting together a few gift bag sets to sell in my NOTHS shop so I had gift bags on the brain.  There were a few sweets left over which were used as props so I decided to create a little gift bag for them.  I used a large glassine bag and inked up the same damask stamp.  I've not stamped on a glassine bag before so wasn't sure if it would work.  It took a little while to dry but created a great look.  The sentiment label is also from WMS. 

Challenges:


Supplies:
Cardstock - Kraft and White Cardstock
Stamps - Damask Background from Darkroom Door from The Ribbon Reel, Rescue Remedies and Say It Loud from WMS
