Tonight I was able to use some materials that were new to me. When one of my local craft stores closed (sniffle here), I got some great deals on stamps. I had no idea how I was going to use them, but I knew I would find a way. One of those stamp sets was Tim Holtz' Haberdashery from Stampers Anonymous. Well, to make a long story short, Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge is D is for Distress and that was just the inspiration I needed to use this stamp set. When I think distress, I think Tim Holtz.
I started out using Strathmore 140lb mixed media paper for the main image. I stamped the dress form stamp in VersaMark and heat embossed it with Zing! Chestnut embossing powder. I created a mask using the same stamp on a post it note and covered the dress form. I then stamped the script stamp from Tim Holtz' Papillon stamp set over the card front. I heat embossed that with Ranger's Super Fine Detail embossing powder in clear. I created the sentiment using the Simon Says Stamp set Beautiful Words and Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink and cut it into a banner.
Now here is where the real fun starts….. using my ink blending tools, I colored the background with Victorian Velvet, Antique Linen and Iced Spruce distress inks. I distressed the edges after cutting the image down to 4 x 5.25. I wrapped some twine I picked up from my local art supply store around the card front and tied a little bow. I popped up the sentiment banner (that I also colored with Antique Linen distress ink) over the twine. I popped up the entire card front over a mat of Stampin Up Chocolate Chip card stock and adhered it to a card made from Neenah 110lb. Solar White paper.
I am happy with this card and had a fun time with the Haberdashery set. I am also entering it into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge D is for Distress.
Below are the products that I used that I could find in Simon Says Stamp. Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to answer them. Thank you for stoping by my blog!
