A quick share of a card I made this weekend just playing around with ideas, not really sure about it but I've made worse I guess.
The background was created with Tim Holz distress inks dusky concord, broken china and shabby shutters which I applied to a craft mat, spritzed with water then laid my cardstock over and allowed it to absorb. The image is a really old stamp JudiKins 2815H stamped with black Stayzon. I then added versamark from a one of those ink pens (I'm sure they have a proper name, but not a clue what it is so do hope you know what I mean) here and there to the image, added Sticky Stuff, heated and applied gold leaf. The sentiment is from a Stamp Barn cube. I also stamped the main card with bamboo from a Hero Arts unmounted set (sorry no codes) using versamark black and embossed with detail clear, the bleached out some of the leaves, although this does not really show up on my picture. Finally I added some oriental coins and cord.
