Vicky *Day 3*

This next card by Vicky is adorable: I love how Vicky pairs kraft cardstock with bright colors. It definitely is a recipe for beautiful cards! The background on her card is also so playful, with the subtle tone on tone stamping.
Here is my take:

I began by inking the floral stamp, Penny Black 3071J, with Distress Ink (Faded Jeans, Wild Honey, and Fired Brick). I colored the stems with a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush Marker. Next, I spritzed the stamp with water and stamped onto white cardstock. I then distressed this piece with Brushed Corduroy and Antique Linen Distress Ink as well as stamping it with the script background, Penny Black 1999L, removing some ink from the stamp with a baby wipe before stamping. The brown background was created from white cardstock by inking it with Walnut Stain and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. This was stamped with Penny Black Paisley Outline 40-048 using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Sentiment by Penny Black, 30-032.

Thanks so much to everyone for your visits and sweet comments. You ALWAYS make my day! See you tomorrow for our last day of inspiration with Vicky! HUGS!

Jill I love how you do a take on someone else's cards but never use the same design or stamps. So love how you picked up on the colour in the cakes and the background colour of Vicky's card. Love the texture on your card background and so love the blending of muted tones around your more bold colours. Love how you always add twin and sentiments.
