Case in point? This one that I designed for the latest The Card Concept challenge, which hit the internet TODAY.
Isn't that inspiration image a beaut? I love all the vintagey goodness going on and was super inspired by the scrawly script and leather heart.
So I decided to make some paper leather.
Check that out! This was made with a combination of Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, and Tea Dye Distress Inks - using the Distress Ink Double Dipping technique.
Next, I brought out a lovely little cardboard heart and did some alterations to give it texture and life.
I started by using Vintage Photo Distress Paint over the surface of the cardboard and, while it was still wet, sprinkled some Rust Embossing Powder over the top. I heat set it with my embossing gun and edged the heart with a coppery InkaGold.
To bring in the scrawly script, I used a big background stamp and added a layer of Distress Crayon and Distress Spray Stain splatters, edging the whole panel in InkaGold to tie it in.
I hope you'll go check out the other awesome inspiration on The Card Concept blog and then play along!
