Here's one of those cards where I've used the sentiment as the focal point and the image on the background.
Starting with the background, on some Milk Card, I randomly stamped one of the images from the Creative Expressions Classic Cars Stamp Set using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I then popped the Grid Mask on top and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the embossing sandwich. I distressed the edges with my scissors and then inked all around them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I wrapped some Idea-ology Journeyman Tissue Tape around the background as shown.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Eight and inked through the die with Vintage Photo. I cut another Labels Twenty-Eight the next size up and again inked through the die.
I stamped a couple of the small tickets from the Creative Expressions Celebration Tickets Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I coloured then in using the Umber and Dark Spice Matt Drawing Inks from the Autumn Shades Set and cut them out. I glued them to the background using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue and then added a couple of staples that I had dyed with some Latte Alcohol Ink.
I threaded some Black & White Baker's Twine through 2 Idea-ology Shabby Accoutrements.
I tied some Baker's Twine through a Creative Expressions Watch Face Charm
and again used Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to secure it.
I assembled the card as shown adding some faux stitching around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
