"A Few Shades of Blue" - Megs Garden #1

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!  So lovely that you could drop in for a visit.

I'm here to show you part one of  the Design Team projects I created for Megs Garden.  This month I have created some cards to share with you.

The first card is made with papers from the Correspondence Collection.  These papers are stunning!!  With their lovely neutral shading and gorgeous textures they are the perfect background for any colour or embellishment that you may wish to incorporate.

The papers chosen are Mademoiselle Louise and Letter from Tucson and they are from the 12" x 12" sheets. 
After sewing the two layers together, I created a band across the card with some of the stunning lace that Meg has in the shop.  This became the base for my flower cluster.  Once the lace was glued down I sprayed the left side of the card with 'Peacock Feathers' Distress Spray Stain and also with 'Afraid of the Dark' Glimmermist.

Added some twine (from my stash), some gorgeous blue and green beads from the 'Green Bundle' and a small butterfly from the Transparency sheet.  The lovely little fabric flower was originally Ivory.  I simply sprayed it with Afraid of the Dark Glimmermist and was so pleased with the result.  Not only is it now the perfect colour but it also has a lovely shimmer to it in real life.

The inside was decorated with some Border Punched strips from the Correspondence Mini Paper Pack.

 Instead of adding leaves to my cluster I thought it would be fun to add a couple of metal gears.  A little touch of steampunk amongst the shabby chic.  LOL!!

  1. Good Morning Marg! What a lovely card to start the week off with, this is so pretty, I love the softness of it and love the flowers too.. the beads and the lace look wonderful too.. Have a lovely day!

  2. I love the colours of this one ... simple and elegant with lots of layers and texture. Beautiful flowers and I love the cogs. So pretty Marg.

  3. Such a darling the affect of the gears tucked in with the flowers!!!

  4. Another superb card from Chez Margy! Especially love the lace bands and the flicks of paint. That combined with the surprise of a little metal cog and the gorgeous beads, make the whole thing very special. TFS

  5. Really beautiful! These projects are just gorgeous & that card is ever so pretty Marg!

  6. OOOOO I saw this come up on facebook.....and absolutely loved it there. I love how you have used your glimmermists as part of your background and again the use of seed beads.....and the use of the cogs adds just a teensy bit of grunge!! INSPIRATIONAL!! Kimi xx

  7. And another beauty! I love how you use such feminine items such as the lace, and then add something slightly masculine/grungy such as the metal all works together so well & perfect! x
