Time for a new challenge over at Live & Love Crafts..
For this month's challenge we have a more traditional theme...perfect for Valentine's... it's Love!
But there's a little twist to it...
One of the most beloved embellishments by vintage crafters is Lace, so we'd like to see some of that as well on your creation!
Here's some Love N' Lace inspiration from the me:
For this card I've used Tilda Spreads Love from the Magnolia You Are So Special Collection 2011..
One thing I've noticed is how grown up she looks.. Doesn't she?
The card's shape was made using a GoKreate die..
The papers are from the Maja Design Vintage Autumn Basics Collection..
I love layers and I've added a doily on the upper half of the card..
There are pearls all over the place and some Shaby White Frantage around the image..
The Bloomy Tags are a Magnolia Doohickey..
I've added some Gesso and Shabby Seam Binding on them..
The gorgeous clay heart is one of my fave embellishments..
These gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, I Am Roses and some were a part of a prize I won some time ago..
Here you can also see the Bark Heart with some cheesecloth on..
A small part of a Marianne Design die can be spotted here also..
And finally a better pic of the gorgeous laces I've used for this one..
The frame was made using a mold bought on Etsy and some Fimo Air..
All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..
The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and coloured with Distress Inks..
HERE's a video if you wanna see how I do that..
I use both the ink pads and the reinkers..
