Crafty Individuals - Squares Challenge

Crafty Individuals are currently holding their first blog challenge, which is squares. For my entry I distressed some Crafty Individuals backing paper by painting it with a thin coat of white acrylic paint to fade it. I then stamped and cut out the vintage ladies images (CI-065) and coloured them with pastel Promarkers. I embossed the edges of the squares with silver embossing powder. Finally I added a small silver heart on a ribbon to decorate.

Other challenges I am entering:
