Thomas Kinkade - Cobblestone Bridge

It's been a good while since I made a vintage card,so, what better way that to used one of the Thomas Kinkade rubber stamps, this one is Cobblestone Bridge.

I used chocolate chip ink from Stamping up and a brayer to ink up the stamp, the brayer ensures a thin even coat of ink which these stamps demand.

I burnt the endes of the image and using a teabag (used after making a cuppa) gently dabbed away to give it a sepia tone. I layered the image on top of wine coloured card and used the binder punch (Stamping Up) on the edge then ripped away the card and edged it with a gold pen.

A vitage scrapbook page for the background with a piece of jute wrapped around it leaf brads button and ribbon to finish.

I didn't know there were Thomas Kinkade stamps. I bet some might work nicely for Christmas cards.

Thanks for sharing your lovely work!
