Today's card was made with the fun The Craft's Meow Giddy Up stamp set. With the Kentucky Derby and the other horse races going on in May and June, I was inspired to pull out this set that I haven't used in awhile.
I really like Stampin Up's new foam ink pads with my clear silhouette stamp sets that I have in my collection. The inks covers the images so well.
I used a Versamagic taupe chalk ink to color the white doily so it would be just a bit more masculine. Just rub and swipe the ink over the doily (Wilton from WalMart or Michaels) and that's it. It colors it quite nicely.
I stamped the flourish frame and sentiment inside of it on some patterned paper and then trimmed around it, inking the edges just a bit. Then, I added a clear rhinestone to the centers of the flourishes and colored them with a brown Copic marker.
I wrapped some Cappuccino twine three times around the card front. I've never used browns and greys/blacks together on a card like this one and kind of like it. Who knew? ;)
Have a great day!
