Vintage Robe

Finally got a chance to do the Featured Stamper #73, Chelemom. I cased this card of chelemom's, but changed the images, colors and left off the wording. The layout was kept the same. I used the Bunny Slipper set soon to be released from MFT again but this time used the Robe that is in the set.

I love using MFT's sets for paper piecing. I used SU's Recollection paper that I'm still hoarding as I wanted a vintage feel to my card. I made the cuffs and collar on the robe be "suede" or faux suede as it is called. I used Cranberry Crisp (about the last of that stash too) and by rubbing a piece over the edge of my table over and over, I was able to peel the cardstock apart. The inside of the cardstock now looks like 'suede'. The bunny slippers were paper pieced on a piece of fuzzy paper that I got from a secret sister a while back.

The distresser tool jumped into my hand again and went crazy. (guess i'll have to vaccum again! What a mess it makes on the floor but such a lovely look to the card!) I also distressed the image with distress inks to give it more of a vintage feel.

stamp: Bunny Slippers - MFT; paper: SU dp Recollections, chocolate chip, cranberry crisp, vanilla, fuzzy white paper; ink: distress inks black, vintage photo, old paper; accs: brads, distresser tool, sponge
