Window of the Soul

So, here is my Rubbernecker card for today. The Baroque Background and Triangle Angel are a couple of my favorite images. They can be found in the Stamp Oasis section on the Rubbernecker Stamp Co. website. The torn brown layer was stamped using Perfect Pearls medium and Bronze pearls and then sponged with TH Aged Mahogany. The Angel was inked using Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap and rock n rolled in Aged Mahogany and misted before stamping. I punched the tiles using a 3/4" square punch and layered them on 7/8" burgandy squares. They are on dimensional foam tape. I also dusted the tiles with Perfect Pearls. The cream card was stamped with the baroque background/Frayed Burlap, but I stamped it off once before stamping on the cardstock. The hinge is Tim Holtz Grungeboard from the Harlequin Elements line. I painted it with TH crackle paint in Frayed Burlap, let it dry and then sponged with mahogany ink and dusted with Bronze Pearls. The sentiment which says "The eyes are the window of the soul" was computer generated and printed on the cardstock.
