Victorian Thank You Card

     I love the Victorian Borders stamp, and have picked it up many times intending to use it, and actually thought that I had, but never did, until now!  I combined it with some other Vintage Inspired Stamps from Red Rubber Designs on a Thank You card.

     I began with a sheet of white cardstock and sprayed it with both colors in the Walnut Ink 2-pack Cupcake Spritzers. After it dried, I placed a stencil over it, and sprayed it again with the pink (Cherry Blossom) for a faded Victorian wallpaper look. Then I tore a piece of cream tissue paper, and stamped it with the Vintage Background Unmounted Stamp Set using Palette Inks (Burnt Umber and Belle Rose). I dipped the edges in the watered down brown (Java) spritzer, and when dry, applied it to the background with Tim Holtz' Distress Collage Medium (Vintage). 

The rest of the stamping was embossed in an antiqued bronze, using Victorian Borders and the large Thank You Unmounted Stamp. 

The flowers were layered and embossed with the Medallions stamp onto an extra sheet of cardstock that I had sprayed with the same two Spritzers. To the flower centers, I applied some Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents. 

     Finally, I distressed and machine-stitched the edges of my card. Thank you for looking, and have a wonderful 2017!
