An awesome card of one of our churches...

This is one of CowTown's awesome stamps - Church, front view. I stamped it in Versamark ink, and embossed it with antique linen powder.

For my sponging, I used antique linen distress ink to keep with the vintage look. I added some flowers and a couple pieces of ribbon, and considered this one done.

I cannot say enough about the distress embossing powders - they are so cool! The texture is still grainy, and it really looks weathered. If you don't have any - get some! The colors coordinate with all of the Tim Holtz inks !! Stamped by Taylor.
