Well, for this card I have had another go at the shabby, distressed, vintage look!!! Personally I think it's a bit of a mess as I seem to be too heavy handed with the ink around the edges even though I start 'off the page'. If anyone can give me any pointers I would be grateful. At least I'm trying, very trying...
Okay then. I have tried to give the sketch a bit of a twist by applying it to a fold-back card (hence all the pics so you can see what I did). The gorgeous image has been coloured with promarkers and distress ink. The sentiment has been stamped and I distressed the edges, in fact, all the edges of the card have been distressed. I applied the ribbon following the sketch and added some flower buttons to the fold-back part. I then added a lace bow with a plain and a glittery (bling) button in the centre. If you are wondering where the 'black' part is, that's what the image was printed in - black ink. Is this cheating? Well, that's it, hope you like it, thanks for looking.
