Life Moments

I decided to showcase the fabulous Generation Redux plate this week, I have admired this plate for a long time and when it arrived a few days ago I knew this would have to be inked immediately.
I applied Wendy Vecchi's Crackled Texture Paste to the backdrop and then applied Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain Distress Inks over the crackle once dry to give a wonderful aged feel. I die cut an Ornate Frame from white card, stamped the vintage image to the central panel which has also had Crackled Texture Paste applied and I coloured the outer frame with Black Soot Distress Ink.
The crackle seemed perfect for the vintage image, adding wonderful texture and a fantastic aged feel to my piece. I also added background stamping using the numbers from the same plate stamped with Black Archival Ink.
I added a repeat stamping of the focal image, this time to the oval panel only, colouring the backdrop with Distress Inks and flicking with water. The hearts are a gift from my fellow team member Linda and fitted perfectly into my design.
To complete I added 'Life Moments' sentiment which I thought fitted perfectly with the focal images.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

It's such a beautiful card, Tracy - the double ovals of the woman, the wonderful layered texty hearts, gorgeous sepia tones - altogether fab!
