Vintage Girl

The Ways to Use It challenge at Splitcoast today is to make a monumental look for our cards to honor the heroes who gave their lives  13 yrs ago at the Twin Towers.   Our backgrounds are to look like stone, marble, granite, etc..

 I used distress inks-lettuce, meadow, terra cotta for my background.  I used a Hampton Art Stamp.  I stamped it 3 times over the top of my background to give it a collage look.

Thank you, for taking the time to visit my blog.
