* I made the TESC Top Crops with this card!! *
This week's Creative Inspirations Paint DT challenge is 'Into the woods' and we had to use metal or plastic embellishments on our projects too. I combined this challenge with Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #121, an interesting layout this week with lots of circles. This is also for Moxie Fab World Card Style Week Challenge: Shabby and Vintage.
There's lots of layers in this card! I used a combo of papers, Webster's Pages Petite Pages and some digi papers from Girlfriends by Nicole and Mari (Sugarplum Paperie) at the Digichick. I also used some lovely ribbons from the Stamp Simply store and vintage lace from my own stash. I distressed the edges of the card by sponging Creative Inspirations Paints in Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna and Copper.
I gathered some lace into a fan shape with a needle and thread. The little paper rose I painted with Burnt Sienna Creative Inspirations Paint. The sentiment I stamped with Green Olive (over stamped with Raw Sienna) and the border is painted with Winter Frost with a wash of Raw Sienna over it. I also painted some narrow cream ribbon with Green Olive Creative Inspirations Paint (I love the sparkle effect on ribbon). I made bows from the cream silk ribbon and the green ribbon I painted. I clipped them together with a vintage clip on earring (they make great embellishments!)
Oh yea and I added a little embossing behind the sentiment in Silver Pearl with a motif from Victorian Fripperie by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I added some stitching on the sewing machine, a few buttons, flat backed pearls and some twine. I think this would make a lovely anniversary card.
Pop over to the Creative Inspirations blog to see the lovely creations from the rest of the Design Team.
Don't forget I'm Guest Designer for the month of July at Sharon's Stamp Simply blog and I'll be posting my creation later tonight!
