>Simon Says Stamp and Show card


This is a card for the Simon Says Stamp and Show vintage challenge this week.  I  started with a distressed background that had some writing on it.  I then took a Hero Arts Cling (I think it’s Antique Brocade) stamp, and stamped in Versamark, then clear embossed.  I then used Tim Holtz Distress Inks to distress the piece. Once that was done, I took an iron and a another piece of blank cardstock, and ironed off the embossing powder. This left the original distressed background peeking through the over distressing.  I took a piece of dictionary, and distressed that ( Worn Lipstick, Dried Marigold and Broken China), and distressed it, and added it to the card front.  I then took SU Chocolate Chip ink and stamped the crown three times and the bird on a branch once ( Both Tim Holtz stamps).  I then mounted the card front onto some dark brown cardstock for the base.
