Time Out - Retro

I'm so excited to be guest designing on the Time Out Challenge blog this month. The challenge for the next two week is "Reto" with the optional twist of "One Layer." This challenge is sponsored by Sarah Gray's online shop Funky Fossil Designs. The winner will receive 3 stencils from her store.

Here's how I put my card together:
  • created a heart mask with a piece of typing paper and stamped the Postcard Stamp (Repeat Impressions) through it using Black Soot Distress Oxide (Ranger) 
  • stamped various tiny images from Stitches (Bo Bunny) stamp set
  • stamped the stitches from the same set in Broken China Distress Oxide (Ranger)
  • added three pieces of Washi Tape to the left side
  • printed the free paper doll from Free Pretty Things for You, fussy cut, and added to my card front
  • stamped a sentiment from Bitty Regards (Unity) in Broken China DO
  • distressed the edges of my card panel and glued it to my black card front
