Hero Card in Brick Red and Natural

This is something I created using Artistic Outpost’s plate, Hero, that was released last month.



Stamps: Hero (Artistic Outpost)

Paper:  Prism, Natural White, Boxer (Basic Grey)

Ink:  Ranger Embossing Ink, Vintage Photo Distress Ink

Accessories:  Brick Red Distress Powder, sponge for aging edges, wrought iron corner punch, vintage brads, key tag punch, Old Paper and Brick Red Distress Crackle Paint, tearing edge ruler

I used Distress Crackle paint (two colors) to paint some interest on the Boxer patterned paper.  The cool thing about the paint is that I don’t have to find a brush-the brushes are attaced inside the cover, so that makes it very handy!  I dried the paint between layers with a heat gun to speed up the process.  All the antiquing was done with a sponge.  A sponge yields a "softer" look to the aging. 

I used a tearing edge ruler for the main image, but don’t remember the brand.  I know it isn’t SU! or Fiskars…will try to add that info later.

I love the old look that these colors yielded…and red and natural look so good together.

Thanks for looking, and have  great weekend!
