Vintage Artistic etching collage

This is a card inspired by a card by minapier at SCS. I used it to showcase the artistic etching set and the sense of time set that go so well together.

Take Cajun Craze basecard. Take a piece of tangerine tango and run it through the bigshot using the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. Brayer using the same ink over the embossed image to highlight the embossed area some more. Use a strip of express on the right to make the embossed strip pop even more. Take vanilla CS and stamp the tower and the words in basic back. Use cajun craze to stamp the clock and the accent on the left but stamp off to make a lighter look for the circle accent and the word and key. Distress the edges and mount the whole thihng on expresso cardstock. Wrap an expresso ink taffeta ribbon to embellish. Sponge the edges and centers to distress further.
