Romantical Jack and Ginger

Hi Classy Card makers!  It's Holly posting today, and I've got this "romantical" card to share with you.  Romantical, for those of you who watch the Food Network, is from the Paula Deen dictionary.  Hee hee hee!
We are showcasing the stamps from the Stampavie line this month, and as a result, all of these stamps are on sale.  Now's the time to stock up on those Stampavie's you've had on your wish list!  :-)
I stamped Jack and Ginger on watercolor paper and then colored it with the wonderful Distress Ink Markers and the Tim Holtz Water Brush - Detailer Brush Nib. I used the following colors of markers:
Tattered Rose - skin
Victorian Velvet - flowers,  lady's skirt and hat
Antique Linen - lady's cardigan and shoes
Peeled Paint - leaves and stems of flowers
Frayed Burlap - lady's purse, man's jacket, belt, and shoes, ground
Pumice Stone - hair
Stormy Sky - man's jeans
For my card base, I cut some brown cardstock to a 5.25" square.  I die cut the Anastasia border from blue patterned paper and adhered that to the left side with some more patterned papers.  The Polynesian Sails Oval die is actually two dies in one - you get the delicate oval die cut as well as a sweet little doily from the center of it. The doily is die cut from white cardstock and then sponged with Stormy Sky and Antique Linen distress inks.  The pink textured panel at the bottom is a Watercolor Distress technique (from Technique Junkies) that I created with  Antique Linen, Spun Sugar, and Victorian Velvet distress inks.  I used the Flower Flourish embossing folder to give this piece some texture, and I lightly sponged some brown ink so you can see the raised shapes better.  A sweet little Decorative Corner die cut at the bottom is all I needed to finish this card. 

Don't forget - all the Stampavie stamps are on sale this month.  Keep on checking back for more artwork featuring these adorable stamps.  :-)
