Vintage Fanfare (by Julie)

Hello, I have two more cards to show you. The first has been created with the recently released Baroque Ephemera 1 and 2 sets which I have teamed with Floral Grunge

All of the images were stamped onto distressed Kraft Kard before mounting onto my card blank.
I started by stamping the Floral Grunge image onto the Kraft Kard and also onto copy paper as a mask was needed to cover the flower. Once the flower mask was in place the postcard from Ephemera 2 was stamped so that it appears to be behind the flower. This was then coloured with Polychromos pencils. The 10p ticket from Ephemera 1 was stamped onto cream, cotton, gros grain ribbon and stuck into place using double sided tape. Various other stamps were taken from the Ephemera sets and stamped around the main image before the edges were distressed by dragging a scissor blade around the outside edge and then sponging Picket Fence Distress Stain over the background.

My second card has been created with Music Fanfare. I simply stamped the torn sheet music for the background using a pale grey dye ink before stamping the main images in black, which were then coloured with Polychromos pencils. The background was then sponged with Distress inks before taking a white paint pen to add highlights. The panel was then cut to size before mounting onto black card-stock.

Thanks for stopping by. Please call again soon for more Design Team inspiration.
