For a Swell Gal!

This month we were lucky enough to have a project printed in Craft Stamper.

We, like many people, including the movie and TV industry, seem to be fascinated with the 1920's and 1930's. This time of subtle glamour is illustrated by shows such as Boardwalk Empire and the movie "The Artist".
 After some research we discovered that although there are many "roaring twenties" stamp sets and craft products on the market, there did not seem to be any large hat stamps - so we just had to create our own range! 
 We also wanted to celebrate the language of the era and so have included some fun sentiments to coordinate with the hats. We hope you like these new stamps as much as we do - we will be adding to the range soon.

 In this project, I have tried to reflect the era in the colour tones - using muted browns and blues. I wanted the card to look vintage but not to grungy or girly. So unusually for me - no flowers, no gems and no big swirls - quite a challenge!
