This project, which is my Design Team piece for Nicecrane, uses some of my really beautiful and rather expensive Maja Design Vintage Autumn papers (up to now I could only stroke and then had to put them away again), flowers that I have had for several years, lace that I seem to have had forever and a die that my lovely friend Mo bought me about a year ago and has never been used until now.
She is just so very beautiful! I printed the image out in black and white and then coloured her bow, dress, flowers and cheeks in pale pink with Distress Markers. They give a beautiful subtle colour on the glossy photo paper. I will add a sentiment if and when I send the card.
The papers were cut to size and distressed around the edges and lightly coloured with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. A smaller piece frames the picture and the edges have been dipped into Embossing Ink and coated with White Frantage.
The leaves were die cut from scraps of the backing paper and the flowers are a selection from my stash. The lace was edged with another piece of backing paper to create a little dimension.
Since I have made this card based on my New Year's Resolution I would like to join the challenge over at Frilly and Funky which is New Year's Resolutions and you need to create a vintage style project. There is a £25 voucher for the winner to spend at The Funkie Junkie Boutique (where Linda's prices and delivery times are excellent) and an opportunity to be a Guest Designer.
I hope you are all having a good start to your New Year, thanks so much for having a look. Hugs, Anne xx
