First of all, I would like to say Thank You to everyone who Liked my page on Facebook, you are such wonderful bloggy friends. Also, no worries if you don't use Facebook, I will still be posting all my projects here on my blog.
For today's card, I was really just messing around with a couple new techniques, so I thought I would take the opportunity to make something for some challenges. I decided to go super shabby, haven't done that for a while. Just as a side note, I would like to say brrrrrrrrr, it's freaking cold up here in Cananda!!!
Nothing new here, some shabby roses made from a Joy Crafts Flower die. I coloured them using Hero Arts shadow ink Soft Sand and Tim Holtz distress ink Victorian Velvet.
In keeping with my New Year's resolution, I pulled out this never-before-used scallop border die from Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders set and adorned it with some lace and pearls.
The doily is from Crafty Ann, the sentiment is from Heartfelt Creations and the butterflies were stamped with Ranger Coffee ink and the Tim Holtz French Flight set. I coloured them with Copic markers. The filigree leaves are La-la land and the flourish is from Marianne Designs.
I was going for a vintage wallpaper look on the top panel, so there was a lot of dripping and splattering going on. The pink pattern was stamped with an Impression Obsession Damask stamp and the coffee stain is a Bobunny stamp. The corner piece was made with crafter's clay and a mold.
I decided to try a new wood panel background. I was going for that old panelling from the 70's, but it didn't really turn out quite right. Oh well, still looks like wood. Ingredients include DecoArt paints and Ranger distress inks.
So here is my other new technique, the big silver rose. Pretty easy, just some Brushed Pewter paint, Rock Candy crackle paint and some micro-beads. Hopefully you can zoom in and have a good looksie.
