Like most creative people I am my toughest critic about my work and don’t often give myself a pat on the back or admit that I “LOVE” something that I made…. but I love this card! I think because I struggle with masculine cards and I also don’t normally “distress” however this card called for it I felt out of my comfit zone.
I have used the classic “Lovely As a Tree” and I have stamped a flourish from “French Filigree” which I omitted using a Crumb Cake Marker stamped off before stamping over the tree. I have also used the “French Filigree” on the Always Artichoke Cardstock in VersaMark and I have also stamped “Wonderfully Worn” in Soft Suede to add a little distressing detail on both the Always Artichoke Cardstock and DSP. Lots of sponging in Crumb Cake then lightly using Soft Suede on the edges.
