Vintage Card for Challenges

Back with a second post to show my attempt at a vintage card and making my own Designer Paper.
I stamped a script on  White CS and also used Distress inks to make and  age my Designer Paper. I attached this to my Card Base of light turquoise that I embossed and sponged with distress ink to highlight the raised design. For my focus, I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink using the water spritz technique. I added color to the design using a brush and more distress inks. I aged the edge of the watercolor paper and mounted it on a mat that I distressed with the edge of scissors and more distress ink. Love the look of watercolor paper and that aged look that you can achieve with it.

Stamp: Gina K Design "Spring Florals"
            Inkadinkado Script stamp
Inks: Distress Inks Tea Dye, Wild Honey, Brushed Corduroy, Broken China
