The cardinal image on this card was stamped then water colored. Then embossed with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE). One the UTEE was dry I cracked it then used distress ink to fill in the cracks giving it a bit of an aged look.
Rather pleased with the way this turned out. There are other making new old and making old new examples on my flickr site. Click on the card above to go to flickr and have a look around.
