Happy Friday! Wow, it seems like forever since I last posted for A Creative Romance Challenge! My teammates are the absolute best having given me a bit of a break after the holidays and with trying to train a new puppy who has reminded me what sleep deprivation is all about- LOL! It’s all good and I am back on schedule!
The Chic Crafters have selected “Show us Some Love” as their theme for this two week challenge. Projects can be a valentine theme, or a romantic card…just something that expresses love! Easy, right?
For my card, I decided to work with a free vintage image that I have on my Vintage Photos Pinterest Board HERE. I save the image to my desktop, open it with Photoshop, resize it and place it in an oval shape with the shape tool. Last, I print the image on Stamping Linen by Joy Crafts with my color inkjet printer. I have used this product before so you can have a peek at other images printed on linen HERE and HERE.
The design paper is from a 12 inch distressed paper pad that I just love for its brown and deep burgundy shades. It is by Heartfelt Creations and it is called Timeless Amour. If you have time, check out the beautiful creations HERE made from this paper pad.. truly unique colors and textures- and it is double sided, too. The edges of the dp are distressed with the Zutter tool and then inked up with Walnut Stain and Aged Mahogany. The image is mounted on a Sizzix Ornate Oval Thinlits die. The gorgeous lace border and pearl lace are from Live and Love Crafts. I honestly do not know where I got the brown silk rose or that gorgeous rhinestone button.It came in a set of about 6 buttons like it. I rarely keep the things I buy in their original packages and so I just can’t place it. The metal shank cannot be cut off as it is a sturdy button, so I just glued it to the beautiful shabby rose.
Why not hop over to see what the Chic Crafters created to inspire you. We would LOVE to see your projects in this challenge. We are sponsored by the Lovely Ribbon Girl with a lush voucher for one lucky winner.
Have a great day, and thank you for your kind comments! This card is available for purchase in my ETSY Shop…
