I wanted my first cards to look like they looked like they had come from an old glory chest or similar...you know that old vintage tea stained look. Here's what I came up with....
I dragged out the Tim Holtz Distress Inks and teamed it up with SU's Early Espresso and some DP. I also busted out a new KaiserCraft Clear Stamp called Sheet Music. I used this on the background. The sentiments are from Fly Free.
I changed it up a little and offset a shape the same as the one stamped to give a shadowed effect.....I really liked the look. The background was stamped off in the Espresso and Black Soot to add interest.
Don't you just love the feeling the butterflies leaving the cage gives.... or perhaps I am over thinking it too much??
I have more butterflies to show....but I think you have had enough for one post. Hope to see you soon.
