I'm on the Crackerbox Stamps (affiliate links used throughout) blog today sharing a very feminine card with lots of vintage flair. I recently bought this gorgeous stamp and thought of so many ways to use it. The image would be gorgeous on bridal cards as well, embossed in white.
I began with a trimmed vintage book page. I added a thin layer of white acrylic paint to soften the text in the background. I didn't realize that the black ink used for the dress wouldn't stamp properly atop the acrylic paint (oops!) so I used a black brushmarker to darken around the edges and smoothed the image with a damp paint brush. I share my boo-boo because, well, we all make them. But it still worked out! I considered pulling out my Stazon black ink but I'm happy with the outcome. I think it lends a softer more vintage feel to the overall project as well. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap of book page (without text) and matted with gold foil paper as I did the front panel. To finish, I added a few clipart ephemera in pinks to up the feminine feel and break up the colors a bit. I really love how it came together.
