For my second card, I chose an image from Artistic Outpost, stamped it in sepia ink and finished the edges with deckle shears. I layered my image onto the card from with various background papers. There was just a hint of orange in the background papers so I tried to bring out the orange by adding a bit of orange ribbon to the brown seam binding (one of my favorite ribbons for a vintage feel). Though the photo corners, buttons and German Scrap are gold, I added liquid Poly Clay in copper to my card to continue an orange influence. I also added a piece of Maya pompom lace from Artistic Outpost Attic Findings as a finishing touch. Note: I accidentally got some water on the ink that I edged my card with. I liked the burnt look it gave to the card, so I added more water!
