Haute Couture and Faux Sanding

This was my last attempt at Faux Sanding. It came out a little more distressed than I had originally planned but I still liked the overall piece. I love this image and it seemed to fall very nicely across the color changes in the background. I thought the text down the side pulled it down a bit so I used the snaps to balance it out.

Stamp: Couture (B-Line Designs)
Cardstock: Bayou Blue and Basic Black (Stampin Up); glossy cardstock (Stampland Chicago)
Ink: Primary Rainbow Ink Pad (ColorBox); Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Embellishments: 2 black snaps - yup, the real kind
Other: gesso, brayer and a paint brush

Have a lovely Sunday everyone! I'm off to a garden party but I think I'll leave the high heels at home this time!

Don't forget there's only 6 days left to get your applications in for the new Gingersnap Creations Design Team!
