Hello my lovely visitors and welcome to my blog. I do hope you are enjoying your day. We're getting quite a bit of rain in Adelaide today. It's wonderful!!
I'd especially like to welcome my new followers. Thank you so much ladies for joining me, I really do appreciate it.
Today I'd like to share a card I made as a Thank you to a dear friend. I have known this lady for a number of years and she would have to be the kindest soul you could ever hope to meet.
The papers I've used are from Maja's 'Walking in the Forest' Collection. I've also used a little bit of Prima's Sunrise Sunset paper for one of the die cut layers.
The flower is from Prima. I've had it in my stash for quite a long time and finally found the right place to use it. I love the little charms and pearls attached to it.
The base paper was cut to size and then distressed but all the other layers have simply been torn to the size and shape I wanted. Makes it look extra shabby, and I love that.
Added some bits in between the layers such as the half square doily, the gauze and the punched sprigs.
The two chippies on the side are Imaginarium's Tiny Keri Flourish. They have been coloured with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then lightly brushed with Versa Color Gold.
Tucked a KC paper flower in at the bottom, which was also lightly brushed with gold Versa Color, and also added some strips of Tim Holtz Washi Tape.
Rolled some of the edges of the paper. I really love that look. The flourish shape under the flower was cut from white cardstock with my Silhouette. I then stamped it with Kc's Script stamp and edged it with Tea Stain Distress Ink to make it blend in.
On the inside I simply adhered a number of torn strips of the Washi Tape. I need to find a really lovely friendship quote to add to the card before I can give it to my friend.
