For my card I used a kraft C6 base card, stamped this adorable little chap from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps using Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, then quickly used a waterbrush to drag in some of the colour from the outline before it dried. I added extra touches of DI with the brush for the deepest shadows. This is a technique I love to use as it gives you a vintagey sepia effect.
SU! cardstock in Early Espresso and Close to Cocoa to layer up the image and for the punched strip on which I used an EK Success border punch. The sentiment is from a set by LOTV and I sacrificed a number of lush brown buttons from my stash !
The angle of the pic makes the top elements look a bit wonky unfortunately, but they are on straight IRL - honest !!!
That's it for today folks, do drop by again real soon.
