Hey people! Today I have a card for you based on the colour story and PDCC (boy! I got the exact colours this time!) and the challenge at CASE Study “your signature style”. I did one CAS for the CASE study challenge, the studded sandals one, and now this one’s shabby chic.
The flowers are stamped (Posy Patch Flowers from Heartfelt Creations) cut and embossed, sentiment is Fiskars “Make a wish”, the mint and ivory coloured little hearts sentiment frame is from Raindrop Echo (Hi Ann!). The glitter balls, chunky glitter and heart gem is from Pie Lane. The paper and butterflies are digi-freebies.
Edges have been inked with ColourBox (queue) in Coral and Dusty plum along with Archival ink in Sepia.
I used copper glitter ball as the head of the butterfly and added chunky glitter (ivory) to make the remaining body.
Added chunky glitter (light Coral) here and there around the flowers. The flowers are coloured with Crayola marker in Coral, which I lightened up a bit with a water brush.
I know everyone raises eyebrows “What? Crayolas??? They are for kids!”, but believe me they are excellent for colouring flowers and colouring panels just the exact colour you want plus they are cheap. The colour you get is really very deep and rich. I own a 64 pip-squeaks box and 50 Supertips (silly scents) which I bought from Amazon.com. Sadly, we don’t get Crayola’s here anymore.
I added pearls on the lace trim, ran down a glittery ribbon behind the organza ribbon, finished it off with a fancy triple looped bow and a pearl.
Hope you guys like it! Now I wont be short of sentiment stamps, I received my Hero Arts and Fiskars stamp sets a couple of days back along with Martha Stewart score board… one thing I can tell ya, life with a score board is HEAVEN! lol
Happy crafting peeps!!!
