Friendship Garden's Challenge Blog : Vintage Halloween Card

(click on image to enlarge)

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!
