Shining Lamps

I did this card for the Hero Arts Flickr March Challenge. This one falls into the layered background category. I used distress inks and my new favorite backgrounds stamp - Life of the Party Dots. This is just a simple card that was fun to make. 

Card stock - Whisper White (Stampin' Up)
Stamp Set - Decorative Lamps (Hero Arts), Lunar Light (Lawn Fawn)
Ink - Basic Gray, Black (Stampin' Up)
Distress Inks - Milled Lavender, Antique Linen, Dusty Concord (Tim Holtz)
Tools - Martha Stewart Paper snips, sponges, foam tape

1. Create card from card stock - final size it 4.25 x 5.5
2. Sponge Milled Lavender distress ink on the bottom of the card
3. Sponge Antique Linen distress ink in the middle and Dusty Concord distress ink on the top part of the card
4. After I sponged on all three colors I went back with the Antique Linen  and tried to blend them together more
5. Stamp background in basic gray
6. Stamp lamps and sentiment in black and cut out with paper snips
7. Adhere to card with foam tape
