Indulge Yourself

Hi Bloggers.

Another card today with the same Vintage Car that I used in yesterday's post.

I started with the background. I scrunched up a piece of Coconut White Card and rubbed Broken China Distress Ink over the top. I spritzed it with water, waited a few minutes for the ink to move a bit and then flattened it with my Encaustic Iron. I then dried it a bit with my heat tool. Using the Bubble Wrap Stamp in my hand I randomly stamped it with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. I then added some large tickets from the Celebration Tickets Stamp Set which I stamped with Chipped Sapphire.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Vintage Cars Stamp Set using Chipped Sapphire. I cut it out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Broken China.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again using Chipped Sapphire and cut it out using Fancy Framed Tags Two. I inked through the die again with Broken China.

I wrapped some black Baker's Twine around the background and added a Creative Expressions Tassel (they always seem to misbehave in photos!).

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Silver Lustre around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
