Happy Wednesday! Hope your week is going well so far. Today, I am sharing a card I made for the latest assignment for Friendship's Garden Challenge Blog. We were asked to make a vintage Halloween card. I chose this adorable vintage Halloween image. It's just too adorable and reminds me of my 13-month old daughter, Madison. I think it's the little girl's cherubic cheeks! LOL!
I printed the image on my home computer and then used Tim Holt Distress Ink to give the image an aged look. I believe I used Walnut Stain ink by TH. After inking, I applied water with my fingertips to spread the ink around. All of the papers are from Echo Park's Apothecary Emporium set. I actually have both a 6x6 pad and the 12x12 collection pad because I just love this paper so much! I also inked the papers as well. The final touch was some ribbon and a black bow. It really was pretty simple. I enjoy using rubber stamps, digital stamps, and diecuts. But, it's also nice to print an image that already has color. I hope this inspires you to try it, too! Thanks for stopping by!
