vintage mothers day card


I decided I wanted to enter the challenge this week over on the Just Add Ink blog. The theme this week was 'vintage' so it was the perfect excuse to get out one of my favourite sets - Rustic Rooster. He is just so cute and the stamp set includes the scrip stamp that I have used for the background. The hard was silver, I just dipped it on the Versamark stamp pad then into white embossing powder and heat set it, comes out perfect! The white flowers from the Pretties Kit got dunked into the cup of herbal tea I was nearly finished drinking (I left the rest! lol) and then dried with the heat gun, it just took the whiteness away from them and made them match the vanilla half pearls better. The lace is the eyelet board gone thru the crimper and the ribbon is vanilla silk. The base of the card is Vanilla Confetti (one of my favourites) and the other card is Soft Suede. If you want to see some of the other awesome projects that have been entered into the challenge or you would like to enter yourself just click on the badge on the right to go direct to the site.
Thanks again.
