Romantique Sneak Peek

Hello everyone. I hope you are all well :) 
As promised I have another sneak peek of the new collection, Romantique which I will be launching on Create and Craft on Saturday at 11am.

  • I have used papers from the Romantique paper collection, the very sweet swan stamps which are in the Romantique Swans precut set which also have co-ordinating dies in the die set, the Bleeding Heart flowers from the Hearthrob precut stamp set that again come with co-ordinating dies.  I have also used the beautiful Heart flourish die which comes in two halves and when put together make a heart.
  • The decorative border is from the Cut Mat Create die set 2A.
  • I have used the Tim Holtz distress tool  around the edges of the papers and main card to create a little shabby vintage style to the card. Also adding some Tea Dye Distress ink to the edges.
  • I have used a grey copic pen to add a little shading to the swans and also added some Stickles glitter.
  •  To finish off the card I have added some lace and pearls.

Sorry for the very short post tonight.  I hope to be able to get to share another card with you all tomorrow.
Take care :) x

  9. Hi Nikki
    Another stunner today. This launch is an absolutely stunner. Just when you think H C can't get any better, they come up with another one. How on earth do they do it?. Not just once but all the time. These are in my favourite. Colour.

  10. Hi Nikki
    Gorgeous looking forward to watching tomorrow
    Best wishes, Pat

  11. Romantique is definitely the right description for the collection. Your card is gorgeous - I love the swans and am looking forward to your appearance(s) tomorrow!

  12. Hi Nicky. Happy Saturday to you and all that pop by.
    Just watched your lovely shiw. What a beautiful collection. Even if I COULD afford the full collection I could never do it justice like you do, my artistic flair is non existant. You have a particular eye for colour mix and matching, its amazing. My attempt would look like a dogs dinner that im sure lol.
    If only I had a teaspoon full of your know how id be happy !
    Have a great weekend on CC.
