Vintage Cocoa

Hello, Avril here today,  with a card using an image from the Think and Wonder set of stamps.

My gorgeous Cocoa boy was stamped with Potting Soil onto white card, I distressed this with Antique Linen,  Vintage Photo and Ground Espresso distress inks.

The background tag was dipped in a mix of Broken China, Antique Linen and Ground Espresso inks, with more Broken china ink applied to the edges when it was dry.

The base layer was also dipped into the same inks that had been diluted slightly.  When this was dry, I used Potting soil Archival ink to stamp the ledger from the Ephemera Backgrounds, along with the numbers and the grungy dots stamp from Generation Redux.

There's also some stenciled dots and washi tape for interest.

I added the sentiment from the Think and Wonder set.

We would love to see what you create with your Artistic Outpost stamps, so please share with us on our Artistic Outpost Facebook page.

Thanks for visiting, have a creative week.
