The card I'm sharing with you is one I've made for an order and it's for a man. I started with the background and used the Apsects of Design Classical Instruments set and stamped the notes with white Paint Dabber, dried it and then blended DI over the top. The paint resists the DI beautifully, I have to say it's one of my favourite techniques. I then embossed some card that I'd covered with Old Paper Distress Stains, using the Allegro EF. I used DI direct to the card to highlight the embossing. The tickets and sentiment were stamped onto Kraft card stock.
I used some watercolour paper for the main image and I stamped different colour DI's onto my craft sheet, sprtized them with water and 'swooshed' the paper into it. I then sprayed it with some diluted Chipped Sapphire re-inker. The swirl is cut from cardboard that I've taken the outer layer off, using the Elegant Flourishes die. The numbers are cut using the Vintage Market die and I've used DI and then Glossy Accents, The frame is made using the Tag and Bookplates die and I've added a Type Charm. The piece of tape is from a tag from a pair of jeans, so a little bit of recycling too !
