left over paper challenge

my goodness, i do have lots of leftover paper. i never seem to toss anything, ya never know when you might need a certain scrap...right? so most of this card is made of leftover pieces of paper.....

this dress from stamp looks "vintage to me".... so distress inks seemed to be perfect....

I created the background for the form using the "distress ink smeared on craft mat" technique....a technical term. i ran the tattered rose distress ink pad over the craft mat (non stick) and then spritzed it with a fine mist of water. placed the leftover white cardstock piece on the beaded ink and pressed gently. each one turns out differently....the background is sort of striaed and the from itself more aged.

the sentiment (from a Micahels $1 set) is popped up on a grograin ribbon.....
i used crystal effects on the dress form stand to give it some dimension too


  1. You achieved the vintage look. Wonderful

  2. Great card - love the vintage look for the dress.

  3. I do love this one... even though you think I hate it!!!
