Pre-made embellishments are a fantastic way to pull together a beautiful card in a matter of minutes! When I was first conceptualizing this card, I started with the vintage-style card from Glitz Design’s Whatnot collection. The layout of the card just flowed from there.
I tried to keep my embellishments relatively simple as I didn’t want to take away from the main image. I did alter the Melissa Frances Resin Embellishment first with some of Ranger’s Sandal Alcohol ink. I then mixed a little of Stampin’ Up!s Taken With Teal Classic ink refill (unfortunately now retired) with some Ranger Glossy Accents to create a colored glaze, which I painted onto the resin embellishment with a small paintbrush. I didn’t cover it too thoroughly as I wanted it to look kind of aged and distressed.
