MFT Creative Challenge - Vintage

In 2011, MFT is working harder than ever to inspire you, and we have come up with something we think you'll really enjoy. Our Design Team Creative Challenge is a new monthly feature, where we challenge our design team to explore their creative side using a specific theme, product or technique. This month, we're exploring the lush vintage style. Please visit the MFT Blog to see exactly what we've been up to, you'll find a full list of designers that have taken up the challenge!

Oh man!  Vintage - really?  I almost didn't take up this challenge.  I don't have the easiest time with that style.  But since the gauntlet was thrown down, I had to!  I pulled out an old favorite - the Dienamics Just My Type die and stamp set.  I love the look of this set and it is super easy to line up the stamp with the die.  I did lots of distressing and stitching and added a Faux Crochet border layered with some lace trim and some twine.  I also added a Rolled Flower on top of my twine bow and stuck a Maya Road Trinket pin behind it all.  I'm not quite sure that this is vintage, maybe it's more shabby chic - but it's my go at it.  




Thanks so much for stopping by!

In my head vintage and shabby chic are pretty much interchangeable, I think you rocked it!
