I love May and the weather today is fantastic here..
The sun is shining, the birds are singing.. It can't get any better, can it?
A colleague at work asked me if I could make her a card for a Holly Communion and of course I said yes..
I have tons of angel Magnolia stamps but I've decided to go with this one..
This week's Tilda's Town Challenge is all about Your Favorite Coloring Mediums and mine are Distress Inks of course..
So here's my card..
The papers are from Maja Design's Sofiero Collection..
I've used one of my GoKreate dies to shape the card..
I've made the Vintage Seam Binding myself..
The Made With Love Charm is from my stash..
And so are the two pins..
I looove the So Wrapped Lovely die.. This one is from Magnolia too..
This Seam Binding has a slightly different tone than the one on the other side..
There's a doily too under all those layers..
And you can see that I've added some pearls here and there..
The image was cut out with a Spellbinders Oval and I've placed a matching Scalloped Oval under that..
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, Kort & Godt and I Am Roses..
There's the Angel Wing Doohickey tucked under them.. Covered with some Shabby White Frantage..
I've added a bit of cheesecloth under those too..
The postmarks around the image are from Kaisercraft..
All the paper edges are distressed and machine sewn..
The spider web ribbon is gorgeous but I just had to add a little bit of lace on top of it..
This amazing lace is from the Suhafuha Etsy store..
You should really check it out!
And then there's this magnificent charm that's just perfect for the theme..
The image is stamped with Archival Ink on 300g Langton aquarel paper and then coloured with Distress Inks as I said before..
I use both the ink pads and reinkers..
When I was done colouring I added some Gesso over it.. Not covering the whole image.. Just parts of it..
I wanted it to look like she was high in the sky between the clouds.. LOL!
The wings are covered with Stickles and there are some Liquid Pearl dots around her..
Hopefully I didn't forget anything..
So.. What are you waiting for?
Show us your favorite coloring medium..
There's a fantastic prize up for grabs for one lucky random winner..
