It’s Time…

Hello everyone… How are you guys doing today?! I have to show you this card I made. I am sure you guys are going to like it…

DSC02400a

I have always been in awe of artists who use vintage stuff on their cards and ATCs but I never tried my hand on it. So yesterday I sat down and did just that. I had to make a guy card anyway and I think this fits the job well… should not have added the rosette hmmm… but then I had to add a lot of bling to it too as people here don’t like cards that are plain and non-blingy (LOL). So I made glitter swirls, stitched up the side with gold thread, added a few diamantes, gem button, iron on sequences and my gold faux brads.

My mum wanted me to add a nice, clean ribbon here instead of the tattered gold net and strings…. but hey I wanted the vintage feel… and I don’t think that a pretty, neat ribbon would have done justice to the vintage clock.

Anyway, I have added dimension to both the clock and the sentiment, I hope its visible. Ah well my first try using a vintage image. And oh yeah completely forgot to add that the paper is an internet download and I edited it A LOT on Photoshop, used my own brushes and text on it…

XOXO

OMG E.T.!!! You seem to have outdone yourself with this card. It is so so so so fab that I have no words for it!! Loved it absolutely!
I share your thoughts about Vintage. But they sure are fun to make!Love your paper... and your glitter swirls are to-die-for! How do you manage the same design every time?

Hugs from across the border,

Love this look..browns and blacks and glitter..sigh! reminds me of brownies! how did i get from card to food??

I think that rosette is off the place..doesn't belong in a guy card..but i love what you've done with the background paper..teach me too!!

Hugs
Tejal

i am not too crazy about the rosette too tejal... but the female who want this card for her dad asked for at least one flower and some glitter... i am going to try this one again without the flower... prolly a different style of fold too..

WOW, Erum! This card is a work of art. You were right to add the tattered gold net instead of a nice, clean ribbon. The card still has a masculine feel. Gorgeous!

Really pretty, but not too pretty for a guy! Even the rosette manages to look a bit masculine. Well done!
