Shopping Mall

Another vintage type card, I love these two ladies from a Crafty Individuals stamp, think they are having a good gossip ! I was looking at Brenda's blog the other night and saw the lovely book she had done for Gingersnap  as a designer, the challenge on there is At the mall, well this is my vintage take on a shopping mall. Its a copy of an old book page and was an actual shop in Knaresborough,North Yorks, just added some vintage paper, distress inks and a couple of bits from another CI stamp plate,I wish I had not added the pink gems at the top corner but they are well and truly stuck so had to stay.There were also a lot of challenges listed on Brenda's blog so am off to see if any of them are still open.

1. Papercrafting journey   - anything goes
2. Paper sundaes              - vintage/shabby chic
3. Dream valley challenges - stamp something
4. Gingersnap Creations - At the mall


  1. Beautiful and classy shopping trip Joan. So pleased you are playing with us at Gingersnaps. Enjoy the weekend. Annette x

  2. This is just fabulous Joan, I love how you have taken the 2 ladies and added them to a shop front - very inspirational. I think the gems help to take your eye around the paper so that you see the whole design easily (see I am using my Claudine Hellmuth teaching here!). Thanks for mentioning me and I am pleased you have been able to use my pieces to spark off your own - that's what our art is all about.
    Have a lovely weekend.
    luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
