I have a giveaway to share with you today a little further down in my post, but I first wanted to share a card I created using my favorite Rose image by Crafty Secrets. I just purchased Tim Holtz' new Watercolor markers, and I have to tell ya.....I LOVE Them! They are so much fun to work with! I love the "watercolor" effect that it gives and the depth of color.
After coloring the roses and leaves, I sponged the entire top of the card with Tea Dye Distress Ink. After inking it up, I sprayed it with water and dabbed it with a towel. It gives this beautiful aged, splattered appearance. To finish off the card, I just added a bit of lace, twine, sentiment, and stick pins.
I love giving stuff away and making someone's day, so today I have a VINTAGE giveaway to ONE lucky person!
It is a suitcase packed with vintage goodies from my favorite companies!
