I used the Stella paper pack from CTMH for this card. I just love the colour combinations and of course, the damask pattern.
I was not completely happy with the way the "picture" turned out on this card. I had a clear idea of it in my mind but the execution didn't go exactly the way I had hoped. I used 2 colours on my stamps, which I was happy with, but I tried to distress it a different way. I wanted it to look like an old sampler that had been aged. I used my CTMH blending pen and my two inks, Tulip and Olive. I found that when I was blending them, the paper got too wet and rubbed off a bit so it is not as neat as I'd like. The stamp set I used for this was Card Word Puzzle, a fantastic set that allows you to combine words for all sorts of sentiments.
Here is the picture hanger, simply ribbon and a large brad in Colonial White.
And finally, I wanted to have the inside done in a lighter colour so that the SCC could write on it. I chose Colonial White and the strip on the side is the strip off the top of one of the B & T papers in the pack. I love these 1/2" x 12" strips. They are very useful!
I hope you enjoyed today's card. The overall effect is quite different from the two that I posted previously.
