Cracked Country Flowers

I have a card from the archives that I thought I had posted, however, didn't yet.  I love the antique, yet country feel of this card. 

After stamping the main image on white paper in memento tuxedo black ink then colored with prismacolor markers before over-stamping a cracked background stamp from Rubber Stampede.  Once I sponged creamy caramel ink around the edges, I layered the main image then added some antique brass brads.

After stamping the chicken wire background and sponging more so saffron around the edges, I took one of my MFT Die-namics, made a scalloped border for the middle, then over-stamped the same Rubber Stampede cracked background before holding it down with the same antique brass brads on the main image layer. 

Making a vintage card is so easy and only takes a few minutes.  Thanks for stopping by today.
