I started with a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and did the wrinkle free distress technique. I used Distress Antique Linen and spritzed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Old Lace and very lightly Tattered Leather. For the first image, I flipped the stamp over and carefully applied my distress inks in Rusty Hinge and Broken China randomly along the image. For the second image, I stamped it using Archival Jet Black ink and then sponged Rusty Hinge and Broken China randomly. As luck would have it, I stamped the images straight and lined up!! What are the odds of that ever happening again?!! snort. I then lightly sponged the outside edges and distressed using my distressing tool from SU. I just bought K&Company's Ancestry.com paper pack and found the perfect background paper. I struggled with different embellishments but in the end decided to keep this CAS (clean and simple) with just the antique colored brads. The card base is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2" . Supplies: Stamps: Music Men from Just for Fun. Papers: Very Vanilla, K&Company. Inks: Distress inks in Rusty Hinge, Broken China, Antique Linen. Accessories: distressing tool, brads, sponges.
