For my sample I stamped the Poppy image from Crafty Secrets in Black Soot Distress Ink on Watercolor paper and embossed it with clear embossing powder. The paper was misted with water and colored with a water brush and Spiced Marmelade, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass Distress Reinker.
Once the paper dried, a frame was dry embossed with the largest Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die, the edges were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and the paper was stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of black cardstock.
The card base is a 5″ x 12″ piece of textured Kraft cardstock folded in half. The edges of the card front were sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. A 3″ x 4 1/2″ piece of Schoolhouse October Afternoon paper was adhered to a 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of the same paper pack. They were stitched to a 1/4″ bigger piece of black cardstock and adhered to the card base.
The sentiment is also from the Poppy stamp set. It was stamped in Black Soot Distress ink on a tag cut and embossed with the Five in one Tag die from Spellbinders. The center was sponged with Vintage Photo Distress ink. A bow was tied out of May Arts Gingham Ribbon. A button was tied to the bow with waxed linen. The same waxed Linen strip was used to tie the tag to the bow. Black Kaisercraft Rhinestones on the top right of the image layers finish off the card.
