Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Rustification

Good morning! I am back with my dt card for the latest challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show: Rustification.  When I initially thought about what I wanted to create for this theme, I immediately thought of a "manly" card. I decided to challenge myself and make a "girly" card in these colours....TOTALLY out of my comfort zone!

I decided to add a touch of orange here and there to "girly" it up.....hope that doesn't count as a cheat LOL!  I am pleasantly surprised that I am quite pleased with the final product!

Just a close-up to show the glitter/distressed embossed stamp image on velum....I really like the look using the velum....it seems more antique then plain white paper, and images seem to float...does that make sense? I did mix two different embossing powders to get the right rust colour I wanted, so don't be afraid to do so...just play and have fun!


I so hope you can play along with us this week at Simon Say Stamp and Show! There is a $50 dollar store voucher up for grabs to one random chosen participant from the oh so generous Simon Says Stamp. Have a great day! Hugs, TRace

Race, love the stamping on the vellum in the background, makes a beautiful backdrop for your luscious flowers. Love the Dahlia die you added behind your flower adding another layer of interest. Love the lace too. Beautiful. Tracy x
