....lots and lots of pieces! But I still like the way they look...They come together to make this ~
I just love the little details on this card...from the distressed, gold edging to the Eyelet Border punch across the bottom. I thought this came together to be very "French country" looking ~ exactly what I was after...
Details: I used the Gold Encore ink to stamp En Francais on Basic Black cardstock for the background, then rubbed the Gold ink pad around the edges to define them a little more. I then stamped the main image from Le Jardin Botanique in Basic Black ink and colored using a Blender Pen and Pastels. Then I used Sahara Sand on the En Francais background stamp, stamped off, then stamped the background of the main image. Add some color spritzing with Sahara Sand to age it a little more, distress the edges, and run them through the Gold Encore ink pad. Love the aged, distressed look this created! I did the same process on the oval image of the words. Once these steps were completed, I just layered everything and attached it to a Sahara Sand base. Let me know if you have any questions!
