Art is Passion

This is my first card using stamps from Innovative stamp Creations rubber. I am so hooked, the rubber is deeply etched and high quality. I used images from ATC Elements II for this piece of art. The gate is stamped using black Stazon ink on a window sheet and attached with brads. I highlighted the word passion using Tim Holtz Distress ink in Scattered Straw. The words were stamped in TH Frayed Burlap for the ATC size layer and the same stamp and ink were used for the background but I stamped it off once so it was lighter. I sponged the edges with tH Vintage Photo. The word ART was part of the same stamp and I inked it using a brown marker and a stamp positioner. I must thank Betsy for the wonderful opportunity to design for her. This will be the first of many creations with her line!
