CropStop Claudine Helmuth Inspired Challenge!


Today's Crop Stop challenge was to make an Artist Trading Card in the style of Claudine Hellmuth. Here is the link to my inspiration piece.
I applied Tim Holtz Distress ink in Spiced Marmelade and Wild Honey direct to paper, leaving some white cardstock showing.
I used Cuttlebug's Victoria embossing folder on the card panels. On one I applied distress ink before embossing and the other is just white.
I added Island Blossom Dew Drops and some pretty Sheer Ombre ribbon for a final touch!

I have to say that this is the type of card I am not used to making but this is very beautiful! I have stamp sets similar to the ones you used and they sit on the shelf and these are great examples on how to use them! Beautiful :)
