My card for today is one that took me out of my comfort zone. I don't usually make vintage or distressed cards. But this beautiful "Romantic Collage H147" image from Great Impressions was calling for that. I am happy with how the card turned out.
I decided to do an embossed resist technique. Stamped the image on ivory cardstock in Versamark ink and embossed with white embossing powder . This part will resist the other ink used.
My background is sponged with 2 shades of pink inks. I re-stamped the post mark and the woman image again in the darker pink and fussy cut for a little background interest.
I added a die cut key. In the corner, I used a crocheted heart from my stash and die cut a heart in primrose petals cardstock and stamped the music part of this image on that.
I made a bow with some wrinkled seam binding from my stash. Pulled out my distressing tool to distress the cardstock edges as well as to curl up the corners.
You can use this for a variety of occasions-birthday, anniversary -thank you or thinking of you. That's it for me for today. See you next Friday..........
