Hello! It’s Thursday, so that means it’s time for another awesome StampInsanity challenge! This week, we’ve got a sketch with a twist…distressing! One of my most favorite things to do! Let’s take a look at the sketch first.
And here is my card:
I used Pierette, one of my most favorite StampInsanity images. I wanted to do a sepia-ish toned image, but I found these fabulous rusty corals and coppers and knew it was the way to go. I was going for the aged look, but with using more modern tones. I was a little worried about finding the right paper though, as I always color in my images before I scope out the rest of my supplies… But I think I found the perfect paper! The tones are spot on!
Here’s a close up of my coloring and the fab copper colored metallic paper (DCWV) I used. The stiped and polka dotted paper is also DCWV, and the brocade is Basic Grey.
I realized as I was looking through my embellies, that I haven’t used eyelets since who knows when…and I love my eyelets! So I popped 2 copper ones on to finish the card off. You can also see the inking (distressing) I’ve done to my card here. I used a Burnt Sienna Chalk ink from Color Box. You can never go wrong with those! I edged everything but the metallic cardstock with that ink.
Please click on any of the images to see them bigger. I think the card looks nice and aged, don’t you? I think the tones are unusual, and I of course like that a lot! Now go and check out the rest of the Groovy Gurlz’s creations! Can’t wait to see what YOU make!
