A card today for the SCS Featured stamper and I cased a wonderful card by Emily. For my background I used a Hero Arts manuscript stamp inked with Colorbox Orchid ink and randomly stamped over the card blank. Over this I used a sponge to give a distressed appearance. I don't know if Emily has used a background stamp on her base card but I love the effect of it. I did the sponging with more of the orchid ink followed by brown. The image was stamped in Orchid and I dry brushed some brown ink in some areas over the top, added the sentiment, two brads and the ribbon and mounted on the card. I distressed the thin strip of card in the same way and edged with a corner rounder punch. After attaching this I pierced under it with the help of a Tim Holtz ruler. TFL.
