This card uses Brocade Blue (retiring) and the Elements of Style stamp set (new and fresh) along with the sketch from Stamping 411. The combination of stamps, ink and color gives it an old fashioned "feel" which is what I was going for!
To make this card I challenged myself to use all of the stamps in the set. Ok I failed my own challenge cause I left out one of the 2 sayings. I could add it to the inside though!
First I stamped the background with White Craft Ink and I really like the look. Then I added some vellum and the stamped white cardstock. To make the bottom part of the stamped cardstock look like the sketch I masked the top part and then stamped. Two rows of paper piercing gave it definition!
