Vintage Valentine Card

Today I want to share with you a fantastic technique for adding faux rusted metal embellishments to your cards. I used this technique to create the beautiful vintage Valentine card below.  Allison Okamitsu did a wonderful video on this technique which you can see here.  Thank you Allison! 

Here are the Ingredients you'll need for the Vintage Valentine Card:

Stamps: You Plus Me
Ink: Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, Encore Gold, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso
Cardstock: Basic Grey, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Naturals Ivory
Extras: Sweetheart punch, Gold Embossing Powder, Pool Party Embossing Powder, Versamark, Hearts Template, Heat Tool, Doily, Gold Button, Linen Thread, Sahara Sand Lace, Spritzer, Rubbing Alcohol, Early Espresso reinker, Soft Suede reinker.

Fill Spritzer with the Rubbing Alcohol and add 6-7 drops of the Soft Suede/Early Espresso reinkers.  Shake and spritz onto Soft Suede cardstock that has the Heart template on it.  It will lighten as it dries.

Happy Stamping!  Kathy
