Head to Head at Dragons Lair

You may be wondering what a Head to  Head Challenge is, I know I did for a while! For this challenge the DT also get to have a go and everyone uses the same kit; the DT and the fans go head to head! This month the Head to Head challenge at Dragons Lair was to use the Florence Mini Kit which lends itself to vintage. Of course as I am a stamper I could not resist the change to combine it with stamping.

Materials used: SAM_2880(watermarked)
Dragons Lair Designs – Florence Mini Kit
Clear Impressions – Timeless Opulence set (free with Creative Stamping Magazine #15)
Memento Tuxedo black inkpad
printer paper and card
stamping card
Copic pens
A5 card blank

From the Florence kit I have used the frame and a couple of the papers for the matting and layering. The picture in the frame is the genleman from the Timeless Opulence set stamped in black and coloured with Copics.  The sentiment at the bottom also came from the Timeless Opulence set.

Why not head on over to Dragons Lair Designs and see all the competitions and events that are happening this month. There is still time to join in with us. Here are some links to help you find everything:

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    As I’m surfing blogs this afternoon, I’m seeing lots of ‘people’ – so there must be lots of challenges going on with this theme. I’m loving the way you’ve used this Victorian image…and setting the lady outside the framework of the gentleman was a wonderful design feature. Love the colors and the scene is just so pretty & vintage. Love it! TFS
