vintage style medallion

Another of the stamps I've been eyeing up in the catalogue for ages is the Medallion background stamp, so when Rhoda came down I asked to borrow it. I thought I'd show you one of the creations that I came up with using it...

Medallion Congratulations

Stamp Set: Medallion, Curly Cute, French Foliage
Ink: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Vellum Paper
Punch: Boho Blossoms
Accessories: Pearls
Extras: Champagne Shimmer

I stamped the medallion in the background and then using a combination of soft suede ink (stamping off for a lighter shade) and champagne shimmer paint  to stamp some water drop marks over the background to add a subtle glittery texture. I stamped the sentiment on vellum and wrapped it around the card. Finally I added some punched flowers and pearls for a bit of a colour punch and voila! 

Hope you enjoyed this vintagy type card.
