Valentine's Cards 2016 - #7

Well, I had to add another vintage image to the bunch, didn't I?  This time I went just a bit "shabbier" in style.

For this card, I've used what has become a favorite technique of mine for backgrounds.  I inked my stamp up with Versamark, and then used my fingers to rub away parts of the ink.  It gives a nice "messy" edge to the stamping that allows the background to fade into the main image.

Image from The Graphics Fairy (color adjusted).

Items used, but not linked: Offray Lace, Vintage Amour Paper pack (from Hobby Lobby- in Valentine's section- not papercraft)
