The first one was inspired by a card Janet demoed at Moira's the other week - this one was a lot less heavy-handed with the brown ink though! Background is distress inks in vintage photo, broken china, barn door and bundled sage brushed on, sprayed with water and blotted. I stamped a stamp from lace fragments several times on the left and one from butterfly poppy on the right and at the bottom , all in vintage photo. Once the inks were dry, I stamped the main image using archival black and coloured it with promarkers and karisma pencils before sponging more vintage photo round the edges. The stamped images on
the base card are using tea dye ink, and the image was matted onto black and copper card.
Miranda, and is very different from her elegant monochrome card . I stamped the same stamp again with versamark and white EP before brushing distress inks in tea dye, barn door, bundled sage and broken china over it, keeping roughly to the design for the colours. A quick wipe with kitchen roll to clean off the embossed image, and matting onto red and green card. The base card was stamped with a stamp from poppy meadow using tea dye inks, and more sponged round the edges finished it off.
I am entering these in the Make my Monday challenge, distressing
