Very Vintage Textures...

Hey! Hey! Hey!  How are you today?! It is time for Day 15 of the #30daycardmakingchallenge!  And it's all about Vintage for today!  (NOT an easy challenge for me!  This actually came together fairly quickly, thankfully, but not normally easy for me!)  Thanks to the Tasteful Textures Stamp Set!

Vintage isn't really where I thrive.  I really like color, and bright ones at that.  But I did really end up liking this card a whole lot.  I love the subtle color in the back.  And those fun birdies.  😁

To make these cute little guys...I just stamped them onto Watercolor Paper in Early Espresso ink.  Then I just took an Aqua Painter and just spread the ink around the birdie.  I colored the beak with Pumpkin Pie marker.  ***Tip:  to get the reverse image (like I did with the birdie on the right), ink up the stamp, stamp into onto the Silicone Mat, and then press whatever cardstock (or in this case, Watercolor Paper) onto the image and rub to transfer the ink to the paper.  So easy!

I love the stamped background and the fun touch of this lace and twine bow.

A few notes on stamping the background:
  • I stamped the damask image onto Very Vanilla using the following ink colors:  Pool Party, Petal Pink, & Soft Sea Foam.
  • Splatter Crumb Cake ink all over the cardstock.
  • Use an edge of the scissors to distress the edges.  
  • Sponge Crumb Cake ink on the edges and all over the cardstock.
