Creative Nugget: Gesso and distress inks were used to age the beautiful Blushing Rose Collection papers to create the background for this card. After wrinkling and distressing the panels, an iron was used to flatten them out a bit so they could be stitched to a Vintage Cream card base. This Whitewash Chic technique can be found on the new Artistic Effects CD by Technique Junkies. The Rose image, from this month's release by Our Daily Bread Designs, was stamped in brown ink on Mixed Media paper and again, using a stamp positioner, in VersaMark ink so it could be clear embossed. The same was done with the sentiment from the Rose stamp set. Distress inks were used to watercolor the roses. The image was cut and matted using a Vintage Flourish Pattern Die. Pearls and seam binding were added to complete the vintage chic look.
