Something Different For Me!!!
Hello Everyone, Oh my goodness, we have had two days of glorious sunshine, clear blue skies and lots of gardening!! (I've nearly finished the tidy up)
I was feeling like my cards where getting a bit samey, so I set myself a challenge. I wasnt going to use all of the usual things that I usually do, so no large roses, hand made hat pins etc. With one exception, the so wrapped up heart doohickey, which I love to use on cards, so allowed myself one little slip hee hee. I think that each crafter has their own style, so I wanted to do something different.
So here is the card that I created using different materials, all from Live and Love Crafts, I have also frantaged the image and the bark heart and added some fragments too. This is the first thing that I have ever frantaged and I am in love with it now. The lovely ladies at L&L Crafts, have such a wonderful selection of goodies and unusual items that I cant keep my eyes off their site hee hee!
So I used Maja Vintage Summer Basics Papers (papers? more like card!), Kort and Godt Rolled Paper Roses, Glass Pebbles and brown lace across the middle of the card. I die cut some butterflies and lacey leaves from the left over from the two papers. I used build a brad for the central embellishment on the base layer and used the left over paper to punch the middle section, so nothing went to waste. I have coloured tilda with prisma pencils, she is from the valentines collection, from earlier this year. I will check on her name and add it to the blog later.
I have also threaded the doohickey with brown lace, shabby seam binding and pearl strings, with a heart charm. The daisy lace across the base layer is from my own goodies, with pearls in the center of each one.
I would love to hear your comments and I hope that you like my card.
