Happy Tuesday !!
Today starts a new challenge over at the
We are going vintage/shabby for this fortnights challenge so please pop over and see all the amazing DT projects and then share yours with us !!
I have opted for browns, gold and copper for my card this time around.
The base is 8"x8" and covered with textured chocolate paper,
I had flowers in mind to go with the beautiful stamp which I adore but have no idea who it was made by ...silly me !! Any offers??
I started by embossing the image with a copper Versa mark ink pad and clear embossing powder.
I used Distress Inks in Vintage Photo and Pumice Stone embossing round the edges and distressing the edges with my Tim Holtz tool after I had done this, I ripped one edge and curled another to add to the vintage feel.
The beautiful die cuts are the new Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 along with the amazing 5x7 card creator basics A ....both coming to the UK very soon!! The sentiment is cut with the smallest decorative elements labels 8.
My side panel is made with a strip of gold paper over laid with "holey" cream mulberry paper. I made the bow from more mulberry and a piece of white tulle blotted with the copper ink.
My key was very brassy so I inked and embossed it making it tone in much better and secured it with twine.
Flowers are my very favorite favorites lol so I spent ages die cutting and rolling the Spellbinder dies and added some of my new Cheery Lynn butterflies to finish my card.
Please pay a visit to Lynn's on line shop The Craft Den where you can purchase many of the crafty treasures used in my cards.
Bye for now
