Okay so here's my card:

 Vintage Besties:  I wasn't sure what kind of greeting would be appropriate for this card so I just left it blank, inside and out. I really like a vintage look and I have so much paper that relays it that I just started there. This is just a lot of scraps with an impressive embellishment. (If I do say so myself!)


I made this little cameo embellishment. My mom bought me a little stamp set at JoAnn's from the clearance bin. It had an oval and two female silhouettes. I stamped them in black Archival Ink (Ranger) and then colored the back ground with Distress marker (Dried Marigold, also Ranger). It looked good but it needed more. I added a ring of Distress marker, Rusty Hinge around the outside then added on my pearls. I cut it out and added Glossy Accents (Ranger) to cover the middle. (So it looks like an epoxy covering.) I love the way it turned out!


 I may have cheated just a little on the challenge. The only "distress technique" I used was to ink the edges of the card and the "photo" with Walnut stain Distress ink.

But this card is a definate stepping stone for me. I can play with the papers and add more embellishment and make several versions of this card in a jiffy!

Hope you enjoyed! Be sure to visit Red Carpet Studios to see more great projects!
