Wonderful You Vintage

Card three from the weekend. The last creation, but maybe my favorite!! Love it when an idea comes out right the first time!! 

I wanted to use the Fresh Vintage set and maybe some of the other SAB goodies, but I didn't want to have to color this stamp with markers. Lazy? maybe a little :) But more that it takes too long to do that with a group. Especially on a stamp with the detail of this one. Then, it occurred to me that Emboss Resist would probably work great! In looking at the Everyday Enchantment paper, I knew this was the perfect background for it! But, at first glance I would swear this particular DSP pattern was Calypso Coral. But, nope! It looks awful with Coral. I liked it with Poppy Red!! 

The card base is Soft Suede with an accent layer of Poppy Parade behind the background print DSP. Across that is a Victoria Crochet Trim ribbon for accent. Mine looks very crooked in the picture-oops!! The center element contains the emboss resist floral image. Remember, stamp with Versamark, add clear embossing powder and heat. Sponge Poppy Parade Ink over the image. When all covered, rub the ink in well with the sponge, then wipe off any excess with a tissue. Pop!! The stamped image is backed by both Poppy Parade and Soft Suede and attached over the ribbon with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Great technique on this card and the lace is perfect with the image. Very pretty! I was just surfing the internet for inspiration and came across your blog. I make cards for our troops stationed across the globe through Operation Write Home and enjoy checking out card maker blogs from time to time.
