I used texture paste with Tim's Gothic stencil and shaded it with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink when it dried as demonstrated in Tim's Compendium of Curiosities, Volume III. I distressed the edges of the background paper with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
I made my Valentine's Day tag using Frayed Burlap and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink along with a mist of water for the background and stamped the sentiment with Potting Soil Archival Ink. I added a pink ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated and then cut apart to resemble Tim's Chitchat stickers and distressed. I love how Tim's distress techniques and products produce a vintage effect.
I finished the card with off-white photo corners and a piece of lace from my stash. I plan to make a similar card for my Mother-in-Law with a portrait of her Mom.
I am also entering my card in the Fresh Start Challenge over at Inspiration Emporium as I endeavor to keep my card making resolution.
Thanks for stopping by :)
