Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads

Antique Pens Card

Antique Pens Card



I am back after a long hiatus. A lot has happened. I’ve moved across the country since my last post. I am going to try and post 3 times a week.

The focal image of this card is an embossed image of antique pens. To decide the size of green cardstock I would use, I placed the stamp on the green and measured out a piece that fit nicely. After embossing the image with Martha Stewart ebony embossing powder, i roughed up the edges with the Tim Holtz distressing tool. The background is form the same Tim Holz stamp set. I used stazon ink in jet black to stamp the definition of curiosity multiple times to make the back around. I started in the middle and then worked my way out. I attached the main image with pop dots. For the sentiment, I embossing Thinking of You in cooper with a stamp from a Hero Arts Sentiment collection. i used Tim Holtz distress ink on the edges of the sentiment and then attached it with some pop dots. I then added some brown buttons from my stash from the corner. I hope you enjoy this card.
