Ultimate Card Showdown Entry #2

So I just had to do one more card for this challenge---2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown. Went with an entirely different style this time. Had to use my Tim Holtzy stuff don't cha know!?! :)
Now for the recipe:
  • Distress inks by Ranger: Broken China and Peeled paint
  • sponge
  • cream cs for card base
  • various ribbons/metallic floss
  • manilla tag
  • Stamps by Stampers Anonymous by Tim Holtz
  • raw chipboard flourish by Memory Boutique
  • scalloped border sticker by Memory Boutique
  • spray mister by Ranger
  • craft sheet
  • Swirl Aqua Suede paper (bought from my LSS before it went under; manufacture unknown)
  • Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes embossing folder

I started by blotting ink from both inkpads onto craft sheet and spritzing with water w/mister. Rubbed tag face down onto this mixture creating a water effect; stamped image and sentiment on tag; edged tag w/inks using a sponge; attached ribbon and metallic floss to tag; created card base from cream cs;cut panel of suede paper and adhered to card; added sticker border underneath along w/striped ribbon; inked edges of card w/both distress inks using sponge then spritzed w/mister; inked up chipboard flourish w/Peeled Paint inkpad then ran thru Cuttlebug with Distressed Stripes embossing folder; adhered to card

Have so much fun, AGAIN! Thanks for looking; loving all the comments too, ladies..........
