I spent yesterday with a wonderful class of girls at Sir Stampalot in Peterborough....we made 3 cards!!!
I new I was pushing it a bit to get 3 cards done as the first was a criss cross card and my classes always involve a lot of die cutting, but YAY!!! we managed it lol.
I will get them photographed today and post them during the week:)
Todays card is what I call a shabby vintage style.....with a quick colouring technique!
- I started with a 6 1/2"x 6 1/2" peachy card blank which I made from co-ordinations. I distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz distress tool and added a little Tea Dye distress ink.
- I then took a 6"x 6" panel from the Once Upon a Time paper collection. Again distressed the edges. I made a little tare about 1" from the right hand side edge and rolled it to create a little pocket and adhered it to my card.
- I already had some elements die cut and stamped out so I went for the 'Time is Short', distressed a little with some versafine pigment ink - Mocha (508) which is a pad containing 5 shades of browns and adhered it just inside the little pocket that I created.
- I heat embossed the Brick and Clock stamp using Cosmic Shimmer Bronze detail embossing powder onto cream card.
- I coloured the image in with a quick colouring technique using the Versafine inks as above and some little sponge finger daubers which I used on a Hobby House show a few weeks ago.
- To colour the leaves I just used a little distress ink - Crushed Olive and Frayed Burlap.
- I matted the image onto some card the same as my main card, distressing the edges again and adhered it to my card.
- I added a lace and twine bow, small Majestic morning flower, some leaves and a sentiment from the papers.
- To finish I have added a few pearls and some Stickles glitter - Pink Taffeta.
So this post wasn't as quick as I intended, but I do like to give you the 'How to Make it' bit :) x
