The colours were inspired by the following Design Seeds inspiration photo for the current LIM challenge:
I masked off the area where I wanted to stamp. I then stamped the Number Pattern stamp by Hero Arts in embossing ink (Ranger's) and heat embossed in clear embossing powder (HA). I used Ranger's distress inks (Scattered straw, Antique linen and Pumice Stone) to sponge in the background. The vintage car (from a gently used stamp set that I received as an extra gift with the stamp set that I won over at Kathy Racoosin's blog) and the the sentiment (HA It's your day stamp set) were stamped in HA ink (Cup O'Joe, from a set of 4 cubes) on a separate piece of Neenah solar white card stock, which I then cut out and adhered using foam tape. I finished the card off with some matching pearls, for which I rubbed a piece of Neenah cs with Cup O' Joe ink, punched circles in different sizes with my eyelet punch tool and then added Glossy Accents. I had just read about someone (don't recall where I saw it, sorry) who used this method to create gold pearls and I decided to give it a go myself.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
