Kissing Background

I made this card several weeks ago for my dear friend using the "kissing technique". Here is a Hero Arts video on this technique. I inked my Hero Arts Fabric Design stamp with Tea Distress Ink and "kissed it" with the Envelope Pattern stamp which was inked with Walnut Stain. Very subtle, but rich, don't ya think?

The butterflies have a top layer of vellum and are colored with Copic pens. This dear friend shared some of these great stamps with me several years ago - I've been saving them for very special cards! Thanks, Antoinette. The tea-dyed twill, buttons, twine are from my stash.

I love the vintage look of this card. The Hero Arts Stamps used are CG245, S5507, CL479, CL140
