This week Stampendous and Mayarts have joined together to share some wonderful greatness. The design teams from both companies has some fabulous stuff to show as well as goodies to give away. Be sure and go to Stampendous and MayArts to checkout whats going on. I have created this card using one of Stampendous' soon to be released Vintage Crowns Perfectly Clear Stamps set, I added some Mayarts Turquoise Wired ribbon, a few peacock feather and old trinkets I have been saving.
I used the embossing powder to distress the edges of the cream paper after random stamping the background. I wanted to stay constant with the look of it so I embossed the crown to match, cut it out and added the Dot Sparklers to make it pop. I Distressed the blue background with some coffee grounds and water so it wasn't so bright as i wanted the image to stand out more then the background. Adding a bit of old junk added the rustic look I was looking for. And who can resist adding a couple of pretty small peacock feathers?
