Made this card at work today. Liked it so much I had to make one for myself. The scan does not show how bright the coins and carpet fragment are really. (the carpet fragment is on the buckle and is a Tim Holtz stamp.) I used Brilliance Pearlescent Inks. I stmped the face on white paper and then stippled it with 2 Distress Inks to give it an old parchment look.
Inspiration for this card is from my sister Dork Karen Lynn! Thanks sweetie!!

I love the old-world look to Uncle Remus here, and it looks like he's loaded with all that money behind him. What a cool idea with the coin stamps, and didn't know that was a carpet remnant? So who is this for? Love your work, Lois!
