Vintage Vogue Brayered Specialty Paper

vintagevogue-tentbrad 

Today’s card features the new Vintage Vogue stamp set.  I absolutely love this card for a several reasons:

#1.  I’m using my favorite card format – the tent card.

#2.  I’m using one of my new favorite techniques – brayered specialty paper.

#3.  I’m using one of my favorite color combinations – Brocade Blue, So Saffron, Silver, and Whisper White

#4.  I love the colored brad insert for the Filigree Flower brad.

I hope you like it too!

Vintage Vogue – Faux Tearing

Vintage Vogue is a new Stampin’ Up! stamp set that I adore!  It has an innate shabby chic feel.  At my Technique Tuesday class this week, I demonstrated the faux tearing technique.  VERY EASY and a wonderful way to add dimension and texture without adding cardstock.  I’ll be using this technique often! 

Create a large piece with a torn edge – this is your mask for your noncolored piece.  Place the cardstock underneath it – you may want to secure it with removable adhesive.  Using a sponge brayer or a sponge, cover the cardstock with a coordinating ink.  If you plan on stamping on the torn piece, do it now.  You can use stamps and ink or a wheel like I did here.  I like the contrast of the Night of Navy ink on the Old Olive-colored torn edge.  Remove the mask.  Finish your card!

Don’t you love the faux button too?

The color is somehow washed out a bit in the picture – I used Night of Navy ink and card stock, Mellow Moss card stock and ribbon, and Old Olive ink (for brayering the torn section).
