Today's project just gives me that warm fuzzy feeling. Perhaps it is the colour combination or the ribbon...or maybe it is the distressed edges...oh maybe it's the flourish! Whatever it is I can't wait to share it with you.
I began by creating a faux wash and I followed it by stamping the background using Dawn's fab Damask Design set. I felt these images were a perfect mix for the flourish. Next I distressed the edges, added piece of cardstock to the bottom, stamped the sentiment, attached the ribbon and adhered it to the card base and second layer. Then I stamped the flourish, mounted it on a piece of cardstock and distressed the edges. I also outlined the inner flourish with a Copic C-1 marker. I adhered it using pop dots.
**faux wash: use a straight edge paint brush on your ink pad, press into pad, and paint over cardstock to achieve desired look. I did this with several colours including a caramel and white ink pad.
- Create card base, layers and paper scraps.
- Stamp background, image, and stamp sentiment. Outline inner image with C-1 copic marker
- Attach ribbon trim.
- Adhere focal image and remaining layers.
