Tissue Postcard

I love this shabby chic card I made using some gorgeous stamps from Stampendous.  I started out by stamping the rubber Cling Key Note on to white tissue paper, and then sponging the edges.  I also wrinkled it up and tore the edges.  After that, I stamped the Perfectly Clear Elegant Borders on to a slim vertical panel, and sponging the edges of that as well.  I used Aged Copper Embossing Enamel to gussy up my grungeboard keyhole.  See how it is all bubbled up? I inked it up with Versamark ink, sprinkled the embossing enamel on it and overheated it to get that effect. I LOVE the Aged Copped look - that verdigris color is stunning!

Around the edges of my pink patterned paper, I stamped more from the Elegant Borders set and used chalk to give them some color.  I'm not cool enough to have an actual set of chalks, so i used my daughter's Crayola Sidewalk Chalk....it worked perfectly! Once done, I sponged a bit of ink around the edges as well.  To finish off the card I added a small bird from the Charm Collection perfectly clear set (ok, ok...it also covers up where i glued down the tissue paper!!)

Very cool how this turned out. Love the bubbled copper on that keyhole. The frayed edges of the tissue add so much more texture.

I really like the shabby chic style. I've never used tissue paper before. Yours turned out so well-I guess I'll give it a try!
