Getting Crafty in Singapore - #1

I have had a couple of requests to show some of the stuff craft wise that I got up to whilst in Singapore. So.....whilst the mojo is still MIA...I figured that it will fill some time till it comes back!! So here goes...

My bestie being the great gal she is...pretty much predicted that I may wanna suss out some of the crafty haunts in Singapore. On the way over in the plane, I took some "Australian Cardmaking, Stamping and Papercraft" magazines with me as well. By pure coincidence....what I read about in some of the mags....I found in Singapore!!! Who'd of thought??

One thing I saw were these stunning ladies...

I had actually made a mental note to source them when I got back to you can imagine my delight when I found them OS!!! I wanted to try a vintage thing with them, so using what bestie had in her craft room I came up with these (bearing in mind I have still not added the sentiments yet!!)

The images in this and the next card were stamp on a textured cream/ivory paper which I was a little unsure of to start with, but was really happy with in the end. Once I had sponged the gave a whole new feel.

This is #2

The lace in this card.....well it was one of those amazing finds. Bestie introduced me to the "Daiso" experience. Daiso is really a $2 shop on steroids. EVERYTHING is $2 and it covers basic, electrical, kitchen, stationary, homewares....and of course crafting bits n pieces!! They are even bringing it to Australia soon. They had 3m packets of lace for $2....and of course I could not!!!

Hope you have enjoyed the first glimpse of my creative time away. I will be back soon with some more.

Stuff Used:
CS: (SU) River Rock, Chocolate Chip, Cream paper fm Bestie's stash
Ink: (SU) Close to Cocoa (ret), River Rock,
Stamps: Clings - "Vintage Ladies"
Other Bits: Cuttlebug "Script" Embossing Folder, Lace fm Daiso.
