Vintage style stamping is one of the styles I most admire...and I am cautious to attempt myself. Well, I gotta tell you, this frame stamp made it easy peasy!
I stamped the frame stamp (French Script Frame SKU:583 ) with Chalk Ink-Chestnut Roan on some patterned paper, and inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Victorian Velvet and Tattered Rose). The main image was inked with Artprint Brown. I cropped that to fit in the frame and inked that piece as well. I also used a distress tool to rough up the edges.
The sentiment (Fashion Fades Text SKU:235-07) was also stamped with the chalk ink, then die cut and inked.
My paper roses (Martha Stewart brand) were a bit too bright--so they got a touch of ink, too!
Foam tape, a dark brown mat, and a ribbon bow (May Arts Ribbon) were used to tie this card together.
I really think you should try this!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
