Pure velvet cards

June 10, 2011

Hi, today I wanted to share with you a card Ive made, using the beautiful Velvet Ensemble collection.

The rich vintage colours in this range are perfect for cards for all occasions. With a little distressing, and a little ink, you can achieve the perfect vintage look. The colours match perfectly with the rustic red of the Aubergine paper blooms.

To achieve the ‘rusty’ look on the bookplate, simply apply a black/gold glimmermist, then randomly add touches of antique gold metalic rubon.
