wanted to use the stamp set in a different way rather than use it in
winter colours I wanted to go for a more rustic appearance.
background of the card started life as a piece of white card which I
coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and then applied Vintage Photo
Distress Powder over the top. I then spritzed the background randomly
with Black Soot Distress Spray Stain to add to the rusty appearance.
stamped the focal image with Black Archival Ink stamped onto white card
and again shaded with Distress Ink. I bleached out areas on the house
in the background .
I added banners stamped with the sentiments along with memo pins and number brads. The sentiments are from the Skating Emporium stamp set.
