I also used Memory Box die Tessatina Border.  I pulled apart some Green Tara Burlap Ribbon to create the tie at the top of the tag.

Playing with Distress Inks

Hi everyone, I would like to share my card with you that I have made using Distress Inks to create the background.

I inked up an embossing folder with Antique Linen and put it through the Bigshot.  I then sponged on Vintage Photo as the next layer, then Brushed Corduroy and finished off with Walnut Stain.  I just love the finished colours on the background.

The sentiment is from the Darkroom Door "Simply Sayings" stamp set which I stamped in Walnut Stain on a piece of cream cardstock, punch out and layered up onto a piece of dark chocolate cardstock.  The base card is the dark chocolate cardstock and the mat is cream cardstock.  I finished off my card with some brown pearls and chocolate seam binding ribbon.

The Distress Inks and the stamp set are available from Bizzy Bec's Online Store here.

Thank you for visiting.
