I just love all the vintage style I see everywhere but have never really attempted to make a card that way. Last night I thought I would give it a try. I looked for a background with words stamped and found one, again, that has never been inked! I added the largest image I had which was SU Inspired by Nature and stamped over the words. I added some watermarks from a stamp we got at Leadership in the Paper Pumpkin kit. I distressed the edges with the SU Distressing Tools and sponged the edges. I used Tui’s Freshly Made Sketches # 75 turned a quarter to the left that made it into a portrait card. I had a beautiful ribbon/seam binding in my stash that matched the colors along with a SU Vintage brad, and this is what transpired:
STAMPS: SU Inspired by Nature (retired), SU watermark stamp from Hello, My Friend- Paper Pumpkin kit, Hero Arts Italian Poetry Background
INK: SU Crumb Cake, SU Early Espresso
PAPER: SU Naturals Ivory, SU Soft Suede, SU Early Espresso
ACCESSORIES: random ribbon, SU Vintage brad
TOOLS: SU Adorning Accents Edgelit, SU Distressing Tool
Beautiful card Cindy!!
A beautiful tone on tone card! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
I love, love this card!
