Vintage Warm Wishes Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Happy Friday! :o)

Today was my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this monochrome, one layer, Vintage Warm Wishes Card.

To make this card, I used three Jane's Doodles stamp sets: 'Coffee Time', 'Winter Wishes' and 'Mr. & Mrs. Claus'.

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper. Some stamping and masking directly on the card base and my coffee winter scene was built. I also stamped a sentiment on the card base.

I colored the card in watercolor technique using only one Distress Ink Color: Ground Espresso. As a finishing touch I splattered the card with same Distress Ink.

Card dimensions: 101 mm x 101 mm (4" x 4")

List of supplies:

I'm very satisfied how my card turned out. I achieved Vintage look, just as I wanted. :o) While I was making this card I had on my mind a friend crafter, coffee lover, so I made it for her. I hope she'll like it. :o)
