Post Card Inspired!! =)

Pin It

Hello!
I'm here to share a FUN Card I've made for a couple challenges!!
First the IO Stamps Pack your Bags Challenge!!
Next for the Colour Q Challenge!!

So I thought it would be FUN to create a Post Card Themed Card!! I just LOVE the Paris Post Card stamp from IO Stamps!! I stamped it several times and then cut out all of them and colored them using Distress Inks!! I arranged them onto my card base and glued them down!! I took my Faber-Castell Aquarelle watercolor pencils and added so shading in between them so it would add dimension and make them really look they were all stacked up!! I added vellum to the top of that and then took another post card image and colored it using the same Faber-Castell Aquarelle watercolor pencils!! LOVE the aged  feel it gives to the post card!! I stamped a separate stamp and cut it out to add more of a realistic feel!! For the butterfly I colored it and then  added versa mark and some WoW  Natural Ultra Shimmer Embossing Glitter!! Man it is a Neat look!! I added a BEAUTIFUL die cut edge using the IO Stamps Border Duo 1 Die set and added some gems and a ribbon and that finished off my card!! I LOVE the way it came together!! Here are some pictures of my finished card!!


 
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and have a FABULOUS WEEK!!  =)

Hi Larissa, Your card is just outstanding. I really like how you gave it the vintage look and it is so feminine at the same time. Love the crystals, the ribbon, and the lace edge too! Thanks for playing and good luck in the drawing too.
