Rocking the Vintage Look: Stately Flowers 9

Today Melanie uses the rock n’ roll technique with the script form her Stately Flowers 9 set along with some simple sponging to create a beautiful vintage patina on her mat.  She also shows how to color the peony from the same stamp set with Spectrum Noir markers.

Thank you Melanie for this beautiful card.  It has so inspired me.  I'm 65 ...and...getting married again.  I wanted my invitations to have a vintage look to them without being old and stuffy.  This is my answer.  You've made me so happy.  Keep up all your good work

Thanks Judi!  it is the white cardstock Gina K. Designs carries.  It comes in two weights: layering weight, which I used in the video, and heavy base weight, for a folded one layer card. Alcohol ink will bleed through to the back when coloring ion the layering weight, which you can see in this video when I flip it over to adhere it, but with baseweight the coloring does NOT bleed through so you can color an image on a single layer card, it's terrific. As for coating, I do not know but both are the only white cardstocks I use for crafting and coloring images. Here is the description for each form the site:

 Pure Luxury Layering Weight Card Stock- perfect for layers and for use with electronic cutters. 80lb weight. 25 sheets of 8 1/2" X 11" Card Stock.

And here are the links if you are in the US (select on the site of you are shipping to another country):

Beautiful card.  I love watching your technique for coloring and stamping. 

I have a question for you...The white paper you used.. Pure Luxury White, I have never used before.  Is it a specialty paper, or coated to use with the alcohol ink pens?  Thank you .

Beautiful! The colors are so pretty and the rocking technique really gives it that vintage look. Great idea. I will have to try it. Thank you

Beautiful!  I love the rock technique too, but I am worried that I won't do it correctly.  I'll have to practice.  I could watch you make cards for hours.   Your coloring is outstanding...and I love to color, so I hope I can do this card justice when I try to re-create it.  Thanks for the inspiration!
