Happy Friday! Today I am sharing with you a card I made using my fun stamps from Great Impressions.
I used the following stamps: Simple Elegance H185, Romantic Collage H147, Distressed Background K94, and Tags G483.
Here is the distressed background stamp (love it!!). I used Tim Holtz's distress inks for this card. So here I used antique linen and then used the stamped with walnut ink. I used black soot around the edges. The paper was a beige color to start with.
This picture shows the antique linen better. Then I stamped the simple elegance stamp. I used black soot but I stamped it on a different paper and used the 2nd stamping here. At the top is a Tim Holtz mini paper clip. The cord at the bottom came from a collection called Designer Threads.
If you see the Tags stamp, you will see that it is inside a flag. I cut out each word then drew a box around each word. I glued the words onto this Tim Holtz tag and added blackcard stock in the background. I had to add a dot of glue to the know of the thread that I tied the tag with. I don't want the tag to fall off!
For the collage stamp I used black embossing powder on a darker beige colored cardstock. Then I used peacock feathers, dust concord, and picked raspberry lightly on the image. I stamped the image again ink black ink and colored it in the same colors. I cut out the stamp with the lady's face and covered it with Glossy Accents. I seem to have rediscovered the epoxy sticker thing and have totally embraced it. :) I used pop dots underneath it.
Here is a closeup picture. The notes are from a Darice embossing folder and Coredinations paper where I sanded off the darker layer to reveal the lighter layer. I also used Tim H.'s film strip and a piece of his pattern paper behind the main collage.
