Here's my card for the new Marvelous Magnolia Challenge..
This week we want to see some Pearls and Lace on your creations..
I made this card for a very special friend of mine..
She's the auntie of little Tim.. He was born last week..
An adorable little boy..
The papers are from the Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics collection..
There's a doily and some cheesecloth on there too..
The birdcage is a Tim Holtz Alterations die..
The laces and vintage seam binding are from my stash..
The charm is one of those I got on Ebay..
The flowers and pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts..
The heart border was made with a Martha Stewart punch..
I've used my Spellbinders ovals again to cut out the image..
The Scalloped Ovals always add a nice touch..
All the paper edges are distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and machine sewn..
The flourishes around the image are from Stempelglede..
I stamped those with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and I really love how it all turned out..
The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
I haven't used much colours this time:
Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo for the skin,
Tattered Rose for the cheeks,
Weathered Wood and Pumice Stone for the shadows,
a mix of Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans for his dress
and then again Pumice Stone to add some shadows..
The pics are really bad this time..
My camera really doesn't want to cooperate.. :)
I've used some Liquid Pearls and Stickles for the final touches on the image..
Don't forget that we have awesome sponsors for our challenges and this week our marvelous sponsor is Crimson Cloud..
I hope you'll join us!!
