i am sharing a thank you card made using 2 stamps from Something Tattered and Izink Inks from Clearsnap

weddings to me are a mix of old and new, vintage and modern, age old traditions combined with fresh ideas.

Something Tattered has gorgeous, romantic, vintage inspired stamps that are perfect for weddings. i chose “traditional” colors for this card and mixed them with crisp white matting and simple shaped flowers. vintage buttons tied with string finish off the design.

i used Izink Inks to create the background papers for this card and accent flowers. Izink Inks are hybrid inks – a mix of acrylic paint and pigment ink. they have a gorgeous shimmer, dry fast and work well on many different surfaces and in numerous applications.

i wanted a soft, multi-tone background so i selected 3 Izink Inks: Ambre, Gold and Silver. i used the ink bottle dropper to add a small pool of ink of each of the 3 colors, side by side on a craft sheet {or wax paper}. i placed the Ambre in between the Silver and Gold. i then used the ColorBox Art Wheel & Handle to gently blend the edges of the inks and rolled the ink onto the wheel. the ink was then rolled onto plain, white cardstock, reinking as needed until the paper was fully inked. once dry, the paper was used to create the card base and accent piece.

the stamped damask vertical piece was done using the Parlor Vintage Wallpaper Background Stamp inked with Top Boss Watermark Pearl Twinkle Ink and embossed with ColorBox White Embossing Powder. once the embossing had cooled, the designs were lightly distressed using a bit of Ambre Izink Ink applied using ColorBox Stylus & Tips. the sentiment was done in the same way using the Thank You Filigree Stamp Set.

i love the pretty shimmer you get when you use Watermark Pearl Twinkle Ink, and the finished embossing reminded me of icing…

to create the flowers, i first stamped and embossed the Parlor Vintage Wallpaper Background design on white cardstock using Top Boss Watermark Pearl Twinkle Ink and ColorBox Clear Embossing Powder. then i applied the Izink Inks using the same technique as for the background paper. the embossed areas were lightly buffed before the inks had dried to “stain” and distress them a bit…
