Good morning crafty friends,
Hope your weekend was a fabulous one and you were able to get some crafting done! I have a card I want to share with you today. It was inspired by a photo challenge at the Shabby Tea Room blog.
Here’s the picture. I have personally always loved the shabby tea room and that “style”, but I spend a lot of time creating fun and cutesy type projects. I really am trying my hand more at all that “shabby goodness” out there
Anyway, here is the card I created that was inspired by the photo.
Here’s a look at my card. I used the Card Square Frame-624 cut file from PCW as well as the Frame Segments file (coming soon). All of the paper is from DCWV The Luxury Stack! The DCWV Luxury stack paper has a really pretty, pearlized sheen to it. It also cut like butter on my Pazzles Inspiration.
Here is a close up of one of the roses I created. I simply cut the petals out of the DCWV paper and then inked the edges with my Chestnut Roan Cat's Eye Chalk Ink. I then staggered the layers and shaped the petals. I then used some of my White Opal Liquid Pearls for the center. I also hit the edges of the petals with my Crystal Stickles. Just to give it some soft and subtle bling.
Here is a close up of the 3 roses cluster on the bottom. You can see here that I used the Petal Pink Liquid Pearls for the centers of the "sprigs" These are the same paper. I just flipped it and used the back side of the paper. It is actually a very light cream or vintage white and not a bright white back, so I thought it was perfect.
Here is another look at the card. You can see that the back of the card is framed like the front. It is very delicate looking. I finished off the card by adding some White Liquid pearls around the card to mimic tiny pearls. I have not added a sentiment to the center of this card yet as I am not sure if it will be for a birthday, anniversary or just because. So I will wait to add that in.
I Used The Following Products
Cat’s Eye Chalk Ink
Well that about covers it for today. Thank you for sharing your crafty time with me. Be sure to come back tomorrow. I have another crafty work of heART to inspire you with!
