Hearts And Flowers For AYSI...
February 09, 2018
It’s a new challenge at As You See It. Fill in this blank: My first stamp or craft tool was: a crimper! Or the brayer – I think I bought them at the same time.
It was fun to bust out my crimper tool. I ran a couple of pieces of cardstock thru the crimper before adding to my card base. Are you familiar with a crimper? It’s a tool that corrugates paper. It’s really a cool way to get some texture on your card so one would think I would use it more!
For my image, I stamped the lovely little bouquet and then colored with my chalks. I added the sentiment and linen thread after I added a bit of blue chalk around the image. It’s hard to see the blue but in real life it gives a nice antiquey feel to the card.
Be sure to join us and link up your card HERE!
Thanks for stopping by today!

Jane your card is sooo pretty! I have never owned a crimper, but always fancied one! I love the texture it adds to your background panels.
