Good Morning :)
Have another card to share featuring distress inks and a Penny Black stamp.
I inked the Songbird stamp first with Versamark frost ink and then applied two colors of distress ink over the versamark. Embossed the stamped image with clear detail embossing powder. Then covered the white areas of the image with a versamark pen and embossed those again with clear powder
The background was created with distress inks, shades of blues and yellows and then a layered of antique linen was added. I just dabbed the antique linen over the background and did that also on the white card stock used for the lattice punch and the card base.
Even though the bird and branch were embossed, they were fading into the background so I did a little distressing with white pigment ink and added a little white pastel pencil next to the embossed image. The last step was to mist with water.
The punch is from Martha Stewart and is scalloped on both sides but I trimmed the left side off to fit the card.
My husband thinks I spend entirely too much time on the internet....so he may not be happy that my friends Tanya and Jackie have introduced me to Pinterest. I resisted for a while but succumbed to temptation yesterday. It's going to be fun! Don't worry Larry, I'll wave at you as I go from computer to craft room. LOL!
Thanks for visiting!
