I made a vintage card for today. :) Look, here it is ...
Some time ago I found this gorgeous free vintage teacup digi stamp and I also found a matching sentiment digi and couldn't wait to use it. I didn't do any coloring, I just applied a tiny bit of TH brushed corduroy distress ink on the images. I made the papers myself. The background paper was originally white, so I colored it with TH distress ink and stamped over it with Stampabilities Faded text backgound stamp (you can see the tutorial on how I make this kind of paper; on tutorail I also showed you how to add glitters, but I didn't do this here, otherwise it's the same technique). The paper on the back of the teacup was just plain brown so I stamped over it with Viva decor Floral embellishment stamps. I also used my border punch and the "Stops for tea" ribbon from Crafty ribbons (from the Best of British collection). It was perfect for this card.
I hope you like my card and that you'll stop at Crafty ribbons Pure inspiration blog to see what my teamies made too.
