Two Toile
Topic: Coloring

Some time ago I was given a packet of black and white papers to use in crafting. About half of them were actually 'cream' instead of white which I liked better. One pattern (4 or 5 sheets) is a toile print that looks like antique fabric or wallpaper. There are only two sections of it that are whole scenes.

I cut out these two areas and colored them with the lightest colors in the Distress Markers set. When I was done they were still a bit bright and looked pretty fresh instead of looking antique like I wanted.

Then it occured to me that a whitewash might knock back the color and decided to use the Picket Fence "Distress Stain". This was perfect for muting the colors.

For the cards I layered them on two papers, did a little pen work with a fine black marker and added some tissue tape with script.



They were both finished with a blue-grey stamped sentiment popped up on foam tape.
