Hi Crafty friends, Amy here, to share with you how to dress up your digital Images with a little distressing, ink and embellies from your stash.
I printed the Stylish Ladies from the Hero Arts Make Your Own DK016 set in Sepia onto white cardstock and trimmed around the image and distressed the edges using the Tim Holtz Paper Distressing Tool and then inking the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I adhered this to a piece of scrap from my stash that looked like fabric to me and distress the edges of that too. Both pieces were mounted onto Kraft cardstock cut to 4.24×5.5′ and made into a top fold card.
I then used a Chipboard Dressform I had in my stash and covered it in Gesso and then brushed on some “Scarab Beetle” Twinkling H20’s which lends a vintage feel and color to it. Some Ivory Mesh and Rose Ribbon and gold pearls from my stash finish it off.
Next I printed the a sentiment to tie my theme all together from the Hero Arts Make Your Own DK016 set and mounted inked the edges with the Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I printed and cut out a spool of thread from the Hero Arts Sew Crafty DK027 set which I colored in with my Spectrum Noir Markers.
There you have it, a shabby chic card made using Hero Arts Digital Images, a little distressing and some embellies from your stash!
