I took inspiration from the colors, the button cards, the gingham pattern, the distressed background, and the thread. I inked distressed everything with the PTI chamomile vintage ink. I used rustic white card stock for the base. I used the more rustic side to the linen & canvas impression plate to play on the more vintage rustic feel of the inspiration piece.
I die cut the Phrase Play in kraft, rustic white, aqua mist, and pure poppy. I layered and placed all the letters making sure to ink distress the edges of all the little pieces as well. For the bottom sentiment panel I used the rustic white and stamped in red the basic background: gingham. I used the larger of the patterns. I thought the pattern was too vibrant so I cut a vellum piece to lay over to mute the gingham a bit. I stamped the sentiment from the Phrase Play #1 in Palette noir black ink. I decided to use some Tombow Aqua liquid glue to adhere this piece. The water glue and red ink created almost a red highlighted effect behind the sentiment. I actually liked this look so kept it. I finished my card with some aqua and red thread and a few clear sequins for accenting.
As always thanks so much for hopping by!
