Totally scary to not colour an image for my card but so fun to use different stamps and inks to create my vintage feel background paper and try something new!
I have quite a few men in my life that love their classic cars so this stamp set from Carabelle Studios was a must have when I saw it. This is one of two cars in the set.
I started by choosing a neutral, tan card stock. I used distress ink that was a few shades darker then my card stock and blended my ink around the edges and into the centre of my paper. A post mark, ink splat and words background stamp gave me the perfect additions to add. I used a tan Marvy marker, again a couple shades darker then my ink to stamp the "pieces" of my paper. I loosely ran the marker over the stamp, gave it a "puff" to moisten it and then stamped.
Some hemp cord, keys and brads finish off my card.
