SAF 2014 - Regency Era with Melissa Phillips

Hello again!  Back with my 2nd card for Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-Faire, and this time I wanted to play along with Melissa Phillips and the Regency Era, just because I really like the beauty of that time.  I was also really excited to try out Nichole's technique's from the Renaissance Era with the wax seals with the "Simply Jane" stamp set, but it didn't turn out like I was expecting.  I realize what I did wrong now, but it was too late for my card!  Oh well, I still like it!


I put three layers of black embossing powder on the silhouette, but the silhouette stamp didn't have enough grooves in it to make an impression...dang it!  I ended up and just added some pearls so it wasn't so plain.  The frame is also embossed in black.  I had thought about doing the frame with Melissa's technique of antique embossing with gold, but liked the idea of a black frame to match the silhouette better.  My striped background paper is Aqua Mist from the "Beautiful Brushstrokes" kit, and the polka dot is from the Bitty Dot Basics.  It's a pretty simple card, but I still like it! :0)

  1. Very pretty, Marcia and so great to think about Simply Jane for that period. It didn't even cross my mind.
