My First Attempt of Collage Stamping
For this card I started with the postcard stamp from TPC Studio. I stamped the postcard with Walnut Distress Ink, after having removed some of the color by stamping onto a scrap paper. In retrospect I think I should have removed some more... Then I added the stamp with cogs and swirls from Vilda Stamps. I used the same Walnut DI, but stamped directly onto my card. Then I masked the postcard and used a stamp with scripture from Panduro with Old Paper DI. The dressmaker is a stamp from Prima. I used Black Soot DI, added clear embossing powder and heat embossed it. I also used a 3 more TPC Studio stamps - a postmark in the top right corner, part of a stamp for the word "greeting" and the sentiment. For the sentiment I used Coffee Archival Ink. So that makes 7 stamps all in all, from 4 different suppliers.
As for embellishments there aren't many - a little piece of Washi tape with script and a bow made with seam binding ribbon colored with Walnut DI. I distressed the edges of my stamped card and attached it to a panel of DP from Prima "Life Time Collection".
