better with age.....
This is the card I created for todays Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.
Stephanie chose the store "Bella Soleil" and from there I picked this as my inspiration:
I really fell in love with the Tuscan flavor...the rich colors and the stucco textures!
.....so now I just had to figure out how to get that look with paper.
Here's what I did:
This worked but I ended up cutting out the middle man and just stamping on the paper with the scrunched plastic bag dipped in different colors of ink. This was fun and messy and ya sure didn't have to worry about messin it up...because that's what you're trying to do!
Next I cut the scraps into 3/4" by 3 1/2" strips.
To get them to look old I used Tim Holtz's Distress ink called Vintage Photo...my friend Nancy told me how to make a dauber out of rolled up panty hose...works like a charm!
To finish I arranged the strips ...sticking four to the card front and mounting the other five strips on pop dots over top of them. The stamps are from www.skippingstonesdesign.com
Coloring the wine glass just a little bit with prismacolor pencils and adding some cool fiber and The card was done....Would I want to do 60 of these?...no, but I sure did enjoy this one!
Here's the inside:
Hope you enjoyed this post....
Till next time,
PS.... here's a card I'm working on now:
