Hello Stampers, Friends and Family!
This card was a real stretch for me. But I LOVED this
Challenge!!!! I have always wanted to do a 'Vintage',
'Shabby Chic' type card. One that also borders on the
'Steam-punk' side too!
I have done a 'Steam-punk' Card, a long time ago!
But this time I wanted to do something a little more tame 'ish'!
I believe I achieved my goal!
Here is the Challenge. It is a 'Theme Challenge.
I see Copper, gold, script, and aging!
Here is my take on this Challenge!
I did a lot of sponging! I stamped the background first.
Then I stamped the 'flourishes' in 'Versa-Mark' and heat embossed
in the three different 'metals'!
Here is the inside of my Card!
Here is my Card with it's stamped envelope!
