Rose Banner #2- Vintage Birthday
This is the second card that I am sharing today using the Sweet ‘n Sassy Stamps April Stamp of the Month, Rose Banner along with the previously released Texture Tiles I stamp set (if interested, please see this post for my first card).
Just a reminder, today is the final day that you can receive the April Stamp of the Month, Rose Banner free with any $75 (US) net order (after all discounts and before shipping and handling) plus any $75 US order ships for free!
I decided to create a Vintage Mixed Media card for this card and will be linking this card to the Seize the Birthday “Anything Goes” Challenge along with the Word Art Wednesday #332-#333 “Anything Goes” Challenge.
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge sites or the SNSS Blog/FB Page yet, I encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the Rose Banner image along with the sentiment with archival black ink, stamp onto white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. Watercolor with water-based markers and distress inks (see below for details). FYI- I was not satisfied with my initial colors so I have multiple layers of color. Once you are satisfied, fussy-cut the image.
2). Stamp the sentiment from Rose Banner using archival black ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
3). Press antique linen distress ink onto a craft mat, spritz with water and press a piece of white cardstock into the ink. Dry with a heat tool and using the script image from Texture Tiles I, stamp the background repeatedly with the same distress ink. Use a stencil brush with a flourish stencil to apply a bit of mermaid lagoon distress oxide ink. Distress the edges with a distressing tool and mount onto a piece of black cardstock.
4). Add the ivory crochet lace and a piece of black satin ribbon, wrapping the edges behind the panel.
5). Mount the fussy-cut Rose Banner image with dimensional foam and use a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the flower petals. Add a few pearls in the corners and clear crystal drops on the petals and sentiment to finish off the card.
