I made this card a while ago for one of the last VSN challenges. Faith challenged us to watercolor using mostly the color brown. I thought that challenge would be perfect for Flourishes gorgeous Antique Map.  The map was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Watercolor Paper. It was colored with Aqua Pen and Vintage Photo and Tumbled Glass Reinker. I am sorry to say that I can’t give you measurements because I don’t have the card anymore. I think the watercolor paper measured 3 1/2″ x 5″, but I am not quite sure. The edges were distressed before it was layered on a slightly bigger piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock, sponged with Walnut Stain Distress ink.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Gina K.’s Pure Luxury Ivory cardstock folded in half. I stamped the rope stamp first horizontal, then vertical with Walnut Stain distress ink and sponged the edges in the same color.

The sentiment is from Flourishes Cherry Blossom. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and cut with Label 13 Nestabilities. The edges were sponged with Vintage Photo, the center with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. An Idea-ology  sprocket gear was attached to the top of the with a piece of twill underneath.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
