Gina K Designs DT Challenge Hop

When Gina issued this challenge to use a background technique that she has featured on Stamp TV, I knew right away which one I was going to do - Distressed Newsprint. It's perfect background to make with my new Vintage Basics digital paper pack and Lovely Labels 2 stamp set. It's just what I need for my vintage-inspired cards.

My first card uses GinaK Grass Green cardstock for a base. The label was stamped with Tuscan Tan ink. I printed the ledger paper from Vintage Basics on ivory paper then stamped the text lines from the Vintage Backgrounds set. The background was distressed using Memento Bamboo Leaves and Distress Vintage Photo inks. The sentiment is from Labeled with Love.

The card base is Lipstick Red. I stamped the label with Vivid Brick Red, the flourish with Tuscan Tan, and the sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa.
