Razzleberry Medallion Birthday


I had a go at vintagey stamping a few weeks ago for my mum's birthday. I decided to sponge the colour on the medallion stamp rather than inking it up with markers or inkpads, I think it gives a nice soft edge to the colour transitions.
I used En Francais for the background, but what I did before stamping was rub some scrap paper over some of the stamp to remove the ink. Then I stamped half the card and without reinking stamped the other half, that way it seems to fade as it goes across the page. Then I added some sponging since a vintage card isn't complete without sponging...
The butterfly is stamped twice in elegant eggplant, once on the card and once on elegant eggplant which I cut out added some dazzling diamonds and crystal effects to make the butterfly nice and blingy. The sentiment is silver embossed using Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant, Versamark
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
