[Scrap Our Stash] October Challenge - Favorite Quote

This month at our Scrap Our Stash's October Challenge we are creating something with our favorite Quote.

This quote is from one of my beloved and first Waltzingmouse Stamp sets called "Afternoon Tea Sentiments."


Women Are Like Teabags...
Stamps: (Afternoon Tea Sentiments) Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Fine Linen, Vintage Cream) Papertrey Ink; (Portrait Collection) Crate Paper; (Wisteria) Basic Grey

Here an closer look at the sentiment. The quote is framed with a scored frame and a cute little brad as an accent. In addition the vintage cream card stock has been distressed with my favorite ink Antique Linen.

Women Are Like Teabags...

This is my first time using acrylic paints. I picked some up when I was last in New York City at an Utrecht. I did not like how stark the white is, so I dabbed some Antique Linen onto the dried paint to bring down the white. But I do like this look quite a lot and will be repeating this technique...

WOW, love this card! And so nice to see other Waltzing Mouse fans out there! I wish it weren't so crazy with the money exchange rate and the shipping! I could go nuts! I DO hope your schedule has slowed down a bit. I don't know how you gals who work do it all!
