This is my submission for the challenge Kris is hosting at Stampin'D'Amour. Kris is a very talented artist whose blog is chock full of inspirational pieces, you should check out her blog Nostalgic Collage for some eye candy. Why don't you join in the challenge at SDA, everyone is welcome!
I used Ranger Distress Inks and the wrinkle free distress technique to create the background on this blank rolodex card. The ink colors used are Broken China, Shabby Shutters, Worn Lipstick, Vintage Photo and Black Soot. The stamps are by Brother Sister Design Studio and Cavallini. To give it an even older look, I dipped the rolodex card in beeswax. This background technique is so much fun because you never know what you are going to get and each background turns out different. If you want to see how to do this technique be sure to check out Tim's blog where he has it posted under his November Technique Tim Holtz.
