Stuff to Say stamp collection. The frame insert was created using my Faux Crazed Porcelain technique. BTW, did you know that the centers of the bookplates from the Tag and Bookplates die fit perfectly into the Idea-ology Ornate Plates frames? That Tim Holtz guy is pretty brilliant, huh?
Artistic Outpost's Paris Exposition were perfect for a 'Sky's the Limit' feeling. They were stamped on watercolor paper using black Stazon. I colored them using a water brush and Worn Lipstick, Bundled Sage, and Tumbled Glass Distress inks. After I cut them out, I adhered them to the card using foam squares.
The background paper is from Basic Grey. On top of that, I layered a piece of vintage ledger paper that was adhered to white cardstock and embossed using Tim Holtz's Postal Texture Fade. After I embossed it, I cut it using the Sizzix Baroque die and sanded it lightly with my Idea-ology Sanding Grip (love that tool!). A thin border of Antique Linen Distress Stickles and some ribbon dyed with Worn Lipstick Distress Stain and I was done!
