I did this layout for the monthly assignment for Made With Love and also the 7 Gypsies Challenge (using the gorgeous 7 Gypsies stamps that I won from the lovely ladies there - thanks so much, love them all).
supplies used include:
cardstock: american crafts, pattern papers: 7 gypsies, stamp: 7 gypsies, vintage ephemera: 7 gypsies, ink: tim holtz (brushed corduroy & frayed burlap), mist: tattered angels (iridescent gold) and maya road (brown), embossing powder: american crafts (clear), flowers: prima, pins: maya road, buttons, alphas: american crafts and twine: shabby green door
Techniques used for the cards:
- Cut rectangluar pieces of white cardstock with dimensions of 2.5" x 3.5"; total of 6 pieces were used.
- Then select your favorite stamps (which just happens to be all of them); I inked the stamp with versa mark and sprinkle clear embossing powder from American Crafts to create the images.
- After applying the embossing powder, I used the heat gun to seal the images and then with baby wipes applied the distressed inks over the images. I used Tim Holtz distress ink - Brushed Corduroy & Frayed Burlap colors.
- Then after allowing the ink to dry abit, I sprayed Tattered Angels Iridescent gold mist over the cards to give it that shimmer metalic look.
