Welcome to the weekend! And that means it is time for a new challenge at Totally Gorjuss. Our theme this week is...
PearlsWell, aren't we just spoiling you with these lovely easy themes of late!
Pearls always make me think of wedding cards; the two are just a natural pairing, so I have made a wedding card using one of my new LOTV Pretty Vintage stamps. They make such a lovely focal point, especially if you don't want a bride & groom type image.
The rest of the card just sort of made itself really :-) I stamped the flowers with a text stamp using 'second-hand' ink i.e. I stamped it on some scrap paper first then on the flowers to get a nice muted result. I also brushed a little distress ink round the edge of the petals for definition.
And then I added those all important pearls!
Sentiment: Statements - Congratulations from LOTV
DP: Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics
Lacy edge: Martha Stewart edge punch
Flowers / seam binding: from Wild Orchid Crafts
Pearl flourishes (cut up a bit!): from The Hobby House
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
1. ABC (S is for stitching)
1. Simon Says Stamp (anything goes)
I hope you have time now to head over to Totally Gorjuss to see what the other Gorjussettes have come up with :-)
