Today is the first day of my Easter holidays so along with lots of appointments for me and the kids I should have lots of crafting time - wooohoooo!!!!
My card today is along way from my usual style and I'm not sure I like it that much - I don't really do vintage or grungy but here goes -
I began with a 6 inch Kraftcard blank which I inked with walnut stain distress ink. I then took a scrap piece of paper (from LOTV's Father knows best paper pad) tore the edges, ran through the Grand Calibur with a M-bossabilites embossing folder called Kickin Rubber and inked around the edge with walnut stain distress ink. I have taken a picture so you can hopefully see the results which I was very pleased with -
The image is from Docraft's Nostalgia classic cars stamp set which I stamped with walnut stain distress ink onto watercolour card. I then pulled the ink from the image with a damp paintbrush. In areas which required a slightly darker colour I used a paintbrush to paint with the distress ink. When dry I cut the image out with a Spellbinder's oval nestie and inked whilst still in the die with antique linen and walnut stain distress inks. I then removed it from the die and inked the outer edge with antique linen distress ink.
I cut several gears from Kraft card using Spellbinder's Spritely sprockets, inked with walnut stain distress ink and then attached to the card base as shown.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
