Quiet, but not blind

Hi Everyone,
Jess here today. I was starting my project with a fall theme in mind and then I stumbled across my quote stamp.  The colors evoke fall, but the sentiment can work year round!




Blank Page Products used:
Oh darling stamp
I was quiet, but I was not blind
Floral Lace
Large Bird Man


Other Products Used:
Distress Inks
Distress Oxides
Distress Crayons
Distress Markers
Cardstock
Micro Glaze
Archival Ink
Clear Texture Paste
3d Embossing Folder
Ribbon
Adhesive
Stencil
Waterbrush

Using Distress Heavy stock blend together several shades of DIstress Ink.  Spritz with water and dry completely.  Take a tiny bit of Distress Micro Glaze cover most of the background.  Stamp the Floral Lace stamp using Distress Oxide Ink and spritz with water.  Using the micro glaze on most of the background keeps the top layer of ink from blending into the background.  It also keeps some of the intricate stamp pattern, but not all of it.  The look is wonderfully aged and tattered.
Take clear texture paste and a stencil to the background.  Don't worry about it looking perfect.  Imperfect looks better! ONce the paste is dry use Distress crayon to scribble over the paste.  Smudge the crayon using your finger and the pattern pops up adding another layer to your background.
Stamp the Large Bird Man on Watercolor cardstock.  Color him in using a waterbrush and Distress Markers.  Once he is dry fussy cut the image.

To finish the background stamp your two sentiments( Oh darling  and I was quiet, but I was not blind) using archival ink.  Back them with black cardstock and play with placement on your background.  Once you're happy with placement you can glue them down.
Run plain black cardstock through your die cutting machine using a 3d embossing folder.  Take a Distress Crayon and highlight the raised areas.  The slight gilded effect is so gorgeous.  Adhere this piece right under the focal background piece you created.
All that's left to do is layer up your background.  On this card the black is attached to a distressed piece of gold cardstock.  The gold is mounted to a sage green card.  A bit of burgundy ribbon was the finishing touch.
Happy Crafting,
Jess
