Sometimes I feel like the crafting bulldog. Once I get my teeth in something…I don’t want to let go. I’ve been playing with this shipment of Glitz paper since it came in Thursday. This particular card has such a lovely dress form image from the French Kiss Whatnot ephemera package.
I used lots of layers in soft pretty colors. To anchor the lightness I bordered in black. I also used 2 different Distress Ink colors. Tea Dye and Walnut. This helps give it a little depth.
The fabulous French text is from a larger image I found on Graphics Fairy. I simply trimmed them out and inked the edges. There is nothing like the creamy color of real vintage buttons. I usually try for a mismatched set. The scallop I cut from My Mind’s Eye paper and layered it under the black layer to separate the patterns.
This may be the most poofy flower embellishment I’ve ever made. I inked the petals to coordinate and added the scrap scallop pieces, a little lace, some fibers, and finished it off with 2 glass headed pins from Maya Road. I wanted a little extra sparkle, so I added several beads to each one. The border strip is punched pieces of scrap and layered with the pink stripe.The last element is a pretty sheer ribbon that got inked too.
I hope to find some crafty time today…but both the boys need to got to the barber shop and the pantry is bare…so shopping can not be avoided lol.
