How you doing?? (No I am not asking like Joey in Friends hehehe) Today I finished a card I have been playing around with for a while, not sure what I wanted to do with it. I must say I am much more happy with it than I thought I would be!
This is my card!!
I have used Sagittarius Tilda from Magnolia stamps and I coloured her hair and skin with Distress Ink pads, and then I got my new Distress Markers in my mail and I just HAD to try them out, so this is a card coloured with both. I must say they really complete each other as mediums! Around the image I have used Frantage Enamel Shabby White and a silver pearl string. I have used Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals to cut the image.
I made this butterfly with mold and clay from Martha Stewart. I have actually inked the butterfly three times with different colours of Inka Gold! I couldn't decide which colour would fit best, so I started with green (like shabby green distress ink nuance), but it made the butterfly disappear into the card, since the paper was green and the castle was green. Then I tried with Old Silver, but that seemed off. Then I found Rose among the mess in my embellishment box and it fit perfectly! I have used Gesso from Martha Stewart on it too. The swirl behind the butterfly is made with a Memory Box die. The sentiment says "Hug" in swedish and is a stamp and die from Roxstamps.
A close-up at the lovely castle from Magnolia Doohickey dies. I have inked it with Inka Gold Mint Green on the bottom and then with Steel Blue on the roof.
A close-up at the other side of the card! I have used flowers from both WOC and I am roses (I truly recommend you I am roses, wonderful store and such great service (and prices!)). Behind the flowers there's a leaf die from Joy of Crafts. The Magnolia Doohickey Heart tag is inked with Ocean Blue Distress Ink pad, Broken China, Faded Jeans Distress Ink pad and then I have used Inka Gold Steel blue over that. I finished with stamping with Distress Embossing Ink and a swirl stamp before I used white embossing powder. I love the result!!
A close-up at the other tag. The charms is from a store via Aliexpress.com. The creased ribbon is ripped from a fabric I bought in a textile store in Stockholm, Sweden.
That's all I had to show you today, hope you have a happy crafting time!
