Prima seashore card

Hi everyone!

I'm here with another DT-project for The Rubber Buggy using Prima's seashore collection again. I love that collection! The only thing that's not from the collection is the stamp I used on the cut-apart piece, which is an old set I found in my stash (I didn't even remember I had it - time to destash?).

I'm not sure if you can tell by the photo, but I have added some texture and dimension (without adding bulk) to the papers by stamping them with vintage photo distress ink. The blue harlequin has some Magnolia chicken wire in the left upper corner and behind the right upper corner and in the gap where the ornate key from G45 is placed.

The brown postcard/map paper has been distressed with vintage photo as well, but also stamped with the Kaisercraft crackle clearstamp to add some depth. Even the backside of the paper is stamped and distressed where the corner is bent and the torn scrolls shows. I've used both the crackle stamp from Kaisercraft and the post card stamp from G45 French Country #3 to mimic the text and pattern. I'm very pleased with the result and that little extra attention to detail really paid off when the card came together.
