Good Morning Crafters,
Wanted to get my card posted for this weeks challenge. I lifted ideas from several crafters I love to follow and tried my on hand, the following is what I ended up with and for once I really like the outcome. No I am not patting myself on the back just happy to accomplish what I set out to do. Have a great week.
I was trying for a vintage look (color),center being the flowers, and wanted some texture.
I started with rusty orange card stock, added wall paper tape, all the paper is from the Basic Grey curio collection. I distressed the back layer of paper and added gesso. Added next layer across the bottom adding a piece of lace to the top edge (oops you can't see it very good in pic.) which I colored from white to Brushed corduroy with TH distress ink. Made the flowers and added all the embellishments I made.
The flowers and buds were made using the HFC tattered blossom and colored with TH rusty hinge. Leaves are from various dies listed below. Note: I love how you can use so many different companies products and come out with a treasure.
