Henry & Harriet were stamped on cream cardstock with Archival Jet Black ink. I coloured the image softly with coloured pencils. I thought that it needed a frame and die cut a large oval ornate frame from cardstock. It was painted with Brushed Pewter Distress Paint and when dry, stamped with the French Script background stamp. The edges were inked with Black Soot and finally the frame was coated with a bit of Crackle Accents in a few places, and Glossy Accents everywhere else.
Love Letters Vol. 2 was stamped on a banner and the card was finished with a die cut rolled flower.
I also made a tag, where almost everything is aged with a mix of walnut ink. It gives the look of a really old and worn photo. Henry & Harriet were stamped with Archival Jet Black ink.
Love Letters Vol. 2 on a die cut label, leaving out the large 'love' since there wasn't space for it, and instead replacing it with a Chit Chat sticker.
hearts were inked with Barn Door and coated with Crackle Accents.
