Whitewash Dogwood

Stamped with Versa Mark, heat embossed with 
fine line white embossing powder on craft colored 
card stock.
I used water colors that were very watered down
for the soft delicate whitewash appearance. 
Note the layering.
The craft paper was sponged with dark brown, 
layered onto white, trimmed to a narrow bordere,
the white was sponged with dark brown.
There is another layer of craft paper,
trimmed to narrow border, sponged and yet
another narrow border of white.
This is place on a pale pink card stock
that has been cut to 5.25 x 4 inches.
The lovely lace border at the bottom is
another Cheery Lynn Designs die.

Cheery Lynn Designs Bow Part 3

 Two slightly different takes on the same basic design.
Sponging the edges of all layers adds subtle definition
and a more vintage look.
The paper is from Graphic 45.
The scalloped ribbon was cut using my 
Create A Cut guillotine cutter.

Using the Cheery Lynn Design Bows, Part 1

I have to say that I really really like the 
It even comes in two sizes!

Manly Cards

 There is a lot to be said for the dies that allow one to
emboss and ink.  These old cars are just fantastic.
The background paper is from Paper Studio.
The card base has the edges sponged with dark brown ink,
as does the map paper and the ivory paper that the cars 
are mounted on.  
Note that the map paper is on a dark brown card stock
that has been trimmed to a narrow border.

 Using an Anna Griffin die that covers the whole 
front of the card.
It was embossed and the open areas
of the die were sponged with inks.
I glued tiny pieces of the flat part
of a paper egg carton in various 
places on the back to create the 3-D.
A frame was cut with Spellbinders
Basic Matting dies.
The frame was attached to the die before 
being placed on the card front.
