Vintage Nature


This is one of the three cards my club members made last weekend. I saw a layout in the April/May issue of The Stampers' Sampler. Susan Eubanks did some wonderful cards with this set and technique. She used glossy "book paper" which I guess means magazines. But none of my magazines had full pages of type that were suitable for stamping the image on, so I made my own with the En Francoise background stamp and glossy card stock. Stamp the words on the glossy first. Rub on color where the blooms will be. Stamp the image in versamark and clear emboss. Brayer over everything with Chocolate chip ink. Wipe off the excess ink and you're done!
