It Takes a Long Time to Grow an Old Friend

 Hello. Today I have a few cards using a sentiment from the new You're Vintage Stamp Set from Technique Junkies: https://techniquejunkies.com/youre-vintage/  This stamp set is part of the awesome August new release: https://techniquejunkies.com/august-2022-new-stamp-release/  I also used some previous released stamps.

You're Vintage: https://techniquejunkies.com/youre-vintage/ 
To create my first card I ink blended a background panel using three colors of Catherine Pooler Inks: Chiffon, Catching Rays and Pucker Up. To ink blend, I used foamed domed blending tools and Hammermill premium cover paper, 100 lbs. I then stamped the sentiment at the top of the card. For the bottom of my card, I used the previously released Wildflower Silhouettes stamp. I trimmed the panel with a stitched rectangle die and then adhered it to an A2 black card panel.

Growing Wild Stamp: https://techniquejunkies.com/growing-wild/
For my second card, I created my background with Lapis Lazuli and Smoldering Ash Shimmering Bliss Sprays. I stamped the bottom of the panel with the previously released Growing Wild Stamp. I then splattered white ink on the panel.  Next I heat embossed the sentiment using black embossing powder. I had a piece of paper that I sprayed with Shimmering Bliss Spray in the same colors as the background panel that I used as a mat later behind the sentiment. I trimmed everything with my Deckle Trimmer and adhered it to a white card panel.
