Artistic Etchings distressed

Another Artistic Etchings card today..... oooooo I love this set...... not spritzed though like yesterday's card, wish I had now but still could mask a bit off and do it later!

I made the tag out of Basic Black and blanket stitched down the side and made everything look tatty.  The paper background is the Newspaper Print dsp and screwed that up and inked over it.  It got some frustrations out screwing that bit of paper up.

Just read what I had typed and I nearly forgot to tell you that I used the distressing tool kit from Stampin' Up! to ink and distress.  The kit contains 3 shaped sanding files, 1 nail type sanding file, 4 distressing ink pads and sanding block and a blank stamp for applying the ink.  Gotta add that to your order if you like distressing.

................Until next crafty.........


  1. Love the button hole stitch and the general look... looks like an 18th century card!
