Its that time again! Time for another Just Add Ink Challenge. I like having a reason to get out my craft stuff, especially if I don't have a workshop.
For this challenge I decided to step RIGHT outside my comfort zone and go a little Vintage! I had a picture in my head and wanted to see if I could put it onto paper.
I used the Emboss Resist Technique for this card and although it is not my 'usual' style, I am finding it growing on me :)
Stamp Sets: En Fraincais, Friends 24-7, Vintage Vogue
Cardstock & Inks: Baja Breeze Cardstock, Not Quite Navy Cardstock, Basic Grey Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Baja Breeze Ink, Not Quite Navy Ink
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Stamp-A-Majig, Baja Breeze Ribbon, (Pearl from Pretties Kit), Mat Pack, Word Window Punch.
So, first I stamped the En Francais background stamp in Baja Breeze and then I stamped over the top with the motif from Friends 24-7 in Versamark. After each stamp, I clear embossed the image. I had to use my trusty Stamp-a-Majig to line them up, seriously what did I do before I had one of these??!!! After all that (it took quite a while, lol!) I went over the lot with my brayer in Not Quite Navy Ink. I had A LOT of trouble finishing this card off as I didn't want to take away from the background, but in the end I went simple and just used the word 'Friends' from Vintage Vogue. I isolated the sentiment from the stamp with my marker.
So what do you think ?? The background reminds me a bit of wallpaper, lol!
