I was inspired by Suzanne Czosek's instructions for making a background on the Paper Artsy blog this week and decided to have a go myself. I made the BG on an A5 sheet of card and then cut a piece for this card. I had none of the PA stamps used but this is my version.
The distressed lines are a Hampton Arts stamp. The post marks are by B-Line Designs and the splatters are by Katzelkraft. They were stamped with Memento London fog and Brilliance starlite black. The 'art' stamp was in a grab bag stamped with Archival plum. I used a watercolour pencil to highlight the postmarks. The perfume bottle is part of a set called 'message on a bottle' by Crafty Secrets. I coloured it with coloursoft pencils and Sansodor. I was thinking of embossing the base card but then decided it would look too fussy.
