Vintage Pitcher and Basin

Hi Dreamers!
I'm back with two vintage style cards.  I used a gorgeous stamp from Serendipity Stamps - Pitcher and Basin.
Both cards were made using a emboss resist technique.  I colored the backgrounds with Distress inks.  Here is the first card.

The image is stamped with brown pigment ink and heat embossed on Bordering Blue CS (SU).   Add the Distress inks with a Ranger Ink Application  tool.  I added small pearls and a sheer ribbon.

On the second card, I stamped with light blue pigment ink and clear embossing powder on white CS.

The CS is from Bazzill and SU.  The DP is from K&Company.  I added pearls and sheer ribbon to this card too.
My Vintage Basin and Pitcher are entered in the following Challenges:
Stampin' Sisters in Christ: use something transparent..I used sheer ribbon-that't transparent.
Paper Sundaes: Anything goes
Stamptacular Sunday: anything goes

I'll be back tomorrow with the Magic Metal projects.  See you then.  Love ya.
