As many of you know, I do my best to customize each card based on my impressions of the recipient. I’ve been reading Kathy’s blog, Inkin’ It Up, for quite some time now, and I know she has a love for beautiful things, so I decided to give her ATC some vintage flair. I picked a beautiful image from one of my Altered Pages collage sheets (I really love their images and Jackie, the owner, is the best!) and offset the image against a backdrop of deep rich colors to give it a heritage feel. I added the flowers and pearls to frame the photo and the name, and I lightly distressed the name label with Tim Holtz distress inks.
