I decided to create a vintage-look sepia card this time. The old-fashioned images just seemed to ask for that and I think it worked out very well, don't you? I used the Heavy Very Vanilla for my base. Then I cut a slightly smaller panel in Early Espresso and another slightly smaller than that from the retired Share What You Love Specialty DSP. Before attaching either piece, I used my distressing tool to distress all four sides of each piece.
I cut a narrower piece of Soft Suede and ran that through the Big Shot with the Hammered Metal 3-D embossing folder. Rummaging through some of my pieces of older, retired DSP, I found some Newsprint and cut three narrow strips, adding those randomly across the layered card.
Finally it was time to begin stamping and, on a piece of Very Vanilla, I first stamped the suitcase from the Traveler set using Soft Suede. I masked that image and then stamped the globe (also from that set) and the postmark from the Parisian Beauty set. To finish up, I stamped the sentiment (also from that set) diagonally above the images.
After splattering some Soft Suede ink on the stamped piece, I tore the edges and then used a sponge to add more Soft Suede around the perimeter.
I love the way it turned out and hope you do, too.
I hope you'll check out the wonderful creations by the Watercooler Artists over at our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
