The Embellish Magazine challenge this time is to do a vintage project and use green, yellow, and rust:
I started with white cardstock, and stamped and white embossed the circle doily image. I followed that with sponging on wild honey distress ink all over the page. I overstamped ferns in peeled paint, and some script in burnt umber inks. My flower is 8 layers of yellow cardstock flower shapes in descending sizes, wet and scrunched to give it some character. After it was dry I added some touches of spiced marmalade distress ink for detail. The ribbon was a white polyester that I also wet and then dragged paprika ink across the surfaces to dye it. And the butterfly is a punched Martha Stewart one which I sponged with the same paprika ink and also some fired brick distress ink.
