Sew Kind Of You Card with A Jillian Vance Design~

 Hi guys!
Today I'm creating with the NEW Antique Sewing Machine
by A Jillian Vance Design. (blog).  I'm also using the Quilting
Stitches Background Stamp
and the Sew Blessed Stamps. 
These are all from the new release.

To create this card start with the background.  That is the fun part :)
 I went with Distress Oxide inks, peach, sunset and brown tones. 
I stamped over the color mix using the Quilting Stitches Background
stamp using a dark peach color.  I then sprayed with water to give
the background a distressed, old look.  The Antique Sewing Machine
was cut on Kraft cardstock and adhered to  a 4" x 3" piece of
black cardstock.  Buttons and thread were added to embellish the 
sewing machine along with the sentiments.

Speckle with beige acrylic paint. I always use an old toothbrush.
Water the paint down and pick it up with the brush. 
an even speckle to the card front.
All adhesive used is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

This is my last post for A Jillian Vance Designs.
Thank you so much for having me.

Row Boat in Nature by Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi guys!
I have a NEW release stamp to share with
you called Row Boat in Nature by Blue
Knight Rubber Stamps. 

The top left card is stamped and emossed with black embossing
powder. The cluster of leaves, in the left corner,
are from the Cute Koala set.  A simple card and 
such a great look!

I stamp out and then fussy cut
the section of leaves I want to add to my project. The sentiment
is from One Line Sentiments/blessings set.

The right card is stamped and colored with Panpastels.
It is stamped using a stamping platform so you can
restamp to darken the lines of the image, once it is colored.
I used a circle stencil to mask off the sun. The edges of the card
 are highlighted with acrylic paint, for a distressed look. The
sentiment is from One Line Sentiments/lucky you.
