CR84FN15

Wednesday, February 16, 2011


I'm busy working on a few projects but I managed to 'create for fun' last night!! I used the gorgeous color palette this week from CR84FN Color Challenge. Here's the pretty palette.


I went for a soft vintage feel. I used papers from Webster's and Prima Botanical Collection (love this range!).


The sentiment is from Fancy Phrases from Waltzingmouse Stamps. The little teal butterfly I cut out from The Mariposa Stack.  I made the flower from vellum using the Tattered Florals Die, I used lots of layers and a brad in the centre, scrunched it all up and rubbed with some distress ink.


I drew some simple leaf shapes, cut out, scored the centre and rubbed with green ink. I love how the flower turned out, it's so light!

Supplies:


Card/Paper: White card, The Mariposa Stack, Prima Botanical, Webster's Pages
Stamps: Fancy Phrases from Waltzingmouse Stamps
Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink antique linen, Black Archival ink, VersaMagic Tea Leaves
Other: Vellum, brad, Tattered Florals die, die cutting machine, sewing machine, crochet lace, lemon seam binding, doily, trinket pins.

  10. Beautiful card Clare. Vellum makes beautiful flowers - doesn't it? I've been using vellum for years to make my flowers and they always turn out more realistic than using paper. I also use cold porcelain, but that takes much longer.
