Distressed Flower

This card is one of my personal favorites.

The flower is stamped on designer paper, cut out, sprayed with a copper shimmer mist, then crumbled up to give dimension and a shabby chic look. For the center I dabbed a silver brad directly into Brilliance Ink in copper, and once dry, sprayed with copper shimmer mist.

The sentiment is stamped over vanilla card-stock misted with a dark brown pen installed in a trigger mister from Stampin' Up! Once cut to size, sponge brown ink on the edges to frame and give a worn, finished look.

The main card is cut from Stardream cardstock in gold. Stardream is my favorite cardstock and paper for a shimmery, interesting effect.

Thanks for stopping by & happy stamping!
Lisa :)
