Been a busy week but I made a little time for playing with my stamps and created this vintage-style card using the Jack and Jill image from the Nanny's Day Off plate.
I've simply coloured the image using one colour of Distress Ink (Walnut Stain) mixed with water to various shades - I was attempting to create the look of old sepia photos - not sure I managed that but I like it anyway!
For the background I dyed a doily using Antique Linen Distress Stain. Jury still out here on Stains but I have to say they worked brilliantly in this instance as the doily is too thin and fiddly to ink well using a blending tool or even direct-to-paper. I finished the card with a pleated strip of lovely Tissue Tape.
Check out a lovely card Kay at Toodles made with the same set here.
