Happy Tuesday and it is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC88)! Silke Ledlow is our challenge host this week. Silke is challenging us to ink and edge distressing. Ink and distress the edges of your cards to add dimension and texture. We would love to see what you create!
Since Flourishes just kicked the Christmas Week over Flourishes Blog this week, we, FOF team has also planned to post some festivities for this FTTC :):) I decided to play with All That Glitters and Christmas Music set and created this vintage-ish Holiday card.
When I stamped the music sheet image for the background, I used masking technique a few times so that each music sheet image looked like stacking one layer to another. After I sponged the background with ink, I distressed & torn the edge. I also DTPed VersaMark and heat embossed with gold embossing powder on the edge.
The ornaments were stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with gold EP as well. then I water colored them with re-inker. I attached the baker’s twine to the ornaments and layered on the Nestabilities mat & paper doily, that was distressed with ink. To finish off the card, I embellished with the lace trim and gold pearls.
