A little vintage

Every now and then I like to make some vintage cards.  I enjoy the elegance of a “vintage looking” card.  I CASE’d this card from Cathy Williams who is part of my Stampin’ Up! group. 

I used the Borders Plate to add some dimension to the card and then I colored the flower trim by pressing it down onto the ink pad a few times until you get the color you want.  I then used the blending technique using watercolor paper and markers on the flowers from the Everything Eleanor stamp set.  First, the flower was stamped using StazOn Ink and then I colored the base of each flower petal and used a blender pen to move the color out to the ends of each petal. I then came back with a darker color and placed a small amount of color where there was some shading on the flower.  I think this turned out very elegant, but yet easy to make. Don’t forget to try out different techniques with your cards….it makes it twice the fun!  Happy Stamping!
