Rustic Vintage Colour INKspiration #33

Hello and Welcome to our Colour INKspiration Challenge Number 33.
Image may contain: flower, drink and plant

Our colours this time are:  Night of Navy, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke and Sahara Sand.  They spoke to me of vintage - along with this gorgeous image..... and so my head went to the Faux Patina technique.

You can find heaps of awesome tutorials explaining this fun technique.  The basics include using an embossing folder and lots of sponging with some random heat embossing over the top.

I've used the Garden Trellis EF on Sahara Sand card stock, and then sponged with the Always Artichoke, Marina Mist and some touched of Night of Navy.  Then I've used some copper embossing powder to give the final touch.  

In a nod to the super gorgeous flowers in the image, I've used my Daisy Punch and Daisy Delight stamp set to create a bunch of flowers for my page.  I've stamped using Sahara Sand onto Very Vanilla cardstock.  They've also been sponged a little to give a rustic vintage look.  

My background stamping comes from Awesomely Artistic which is retiring at the end of this month - what a super awesome stamp set!!

The great greeting comes from the hostess stamp set Dare To Dream - what a great set for scrapbooking pages!!  

When I'd finished my page, I had some left over pieces of my Faux Patina, and so I created a couple of quick cards featuring the lovely Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars framelits.

Hopefully you can tell, this card is very much inspired by the challenge picture!!
