Oops I forgot to say you will also need some sponge for blending ink. I've just used a cut up dish sponge but use a blending tool if you have one. First mask off about one third of the card using your post it notes. Be careful to make sure they're straight. I used some sticky tape to make sure they didn't peel up again. I've got some plastic below my card. You will want to have something smooth to protect your work top and to work on. Now get some ink on the sponge and using circular movements beginning at the edge of the card begin to add some vintage photo ink onto the area of card still showing.
Here it is all inked. Keep the post it notes on still. We've more to do to this.
Using a background stamp ink it up with walnut stain and stamp over the sponged area. Here I'm using a music stamp and will have to stamp 3 times. I need to re-ink my stamp each time and I make sure it is the right way up!
Here you can see I've inked the whole area. My stamp goes onto the post it notes and sometimes onto the plastic sheet. This is why you need to protect your surface. Don't worry if you have little gaps where the stamp hasn't come out completely. It adds to the vintage feel of the card.
I decided to add a sentiment to my card and at this stage I made a couple of mistakes. First my stamp wasn't completely straight in the block and secondly I pressed too hard when stamping so got a blurry result, but I left it this way so you could see what NOT to do!
