Now for my take on Distressed/Vintage, using Digital Delights Stamps Down at the Farm Set and Farmer Giles.
First thing to say is that this is a perfectly flat card. It is the placement of the paper that gives it dimension.
Isn't Digital Delights Farmer Giles the greatest!
The pattern paper and the apples in the tree are all from the co-ordinating paper pack from DD
This circle of Farmer Giles is taken off another patterned paper from the same co-ordinating pack.
Look at those eyes - aren't they to die for! The bow is from my dog's straw.
And the bail of straw is also part of the Farm Set.
I backed the card with cardboard given to me from my Printer! Don't forget to ask your printer for the things they throw out. They gave me about 200 pieces 11 1/2 X 18. It is spritzed with a variety of Tim Holtz Sprays. The straw again, is just obviously theaded into the card. And the paper torn and sponged with Tim's Vintage Ink.
This is a hard one. I have the full set of copics and I must say I use most of the greens when I do green and most of the pinks when I do pink etc. These are the MAIN colors and from there, go around these colors with your copics to de-shade and upper-shade.
For anything that is grey - dark grey - black I use a variety of all the greys to blacks - all of the differing tones blended together.
And here is the culmination of it all, once again!
Card shared with, depending if it fits this week -
