Hi there!! Today I have vintage card to share! My kind of vintage is what I call light vintage, a vintage style stamp, distressed inked edges, maybe some vintage pattern paper. This time I made it vintage-y by using ink! Have you ever stamped with dye ink then again over it with pigment? Depending on your colors, you can get nice vintage look to any stamp! Give it a try!!

Dragonfly card by Dana Warren

Hampton Art
Stamps: Art Warehouse Vintage Dragonfly PS0710, Graphic 45 Paris Postage PS0530, 7 Gypsies File Tab PS0675
KI Memories: Hot Date Brads 3588

Ink: Colorbox – Dye Ink Frosted Plum. Mix’d Media Inx Leather, Jasmine, Pewter
Other: Old Book Page

Designer Notes:
  1. Tear out a square from an old book
  2. Stamp dragon fly with Frosted Plum Dye Ink. Stamp again with Mix;d Media Inx Pewter Pigment Ink.
  3. Stamp File Tab multiple times over cardbase. After stamping each tab, lightly rub ink around, I use a dried baby wipe. If ink is very wet, let dry a few seconds, you don’t want the image smeared only blurred a little.
  4. Stamp postage stamp over cardbase with Jasmine pigment ink. This one I taped the image with my dried baby wipe then rubbed. I wanted the image to be a little more blurred then the tabs.
  5. Distress cardbase edges
  6. Attach brad to book page and adhere to card base.
