How about a ticket to Paris? I absolutely love this new Vintage Traveler stamp set from Our Craft Lounge! And I couldn't wait to try a different, simple sort of collage-type card.
I spritzed watercolor paper with a mixture of Ranger Distress broken china reinker and water, using a Mini-Mister. When that was dry, I adhered the mini-mask and spritzed again with the same mixture, then using a mixture of dusty concord reinker and water.
After everything was dry, I removed the mask and stamped the Eiffel Tower in weathered wood Distress ink and the sentiment in black. I die cut it with the largest Labels One Nestabilities die template and trimmed the left edge. Liquid pearls and Star Dust Stickles were smeared over the flourish.
The tickets (a package of 250 for $1.00 at Dollar Tree!) were spritzed with the broken china mixture and the edges were distressed.
I had seen these beautiful grungepaper roses (on the Valentine altered piece) at Kat's blog and followed her link to Lynne Forsyth's great tutorial. I wanted my roses to stay gray, so I only applied the liquid pearls and then some Star Dust Stickles.
I'm so glad you stopped by today! I'll be at the Flourishes blog again on Sunday and I hope you'll check it out! Have a great weekend!
