This is SO different from my last card!! I have gone way out of my comfort zone this week and made a 'Shabby Chic Friendship' card for the Wild Orchid Challenge. It's the first time I have distressed with inks, so I may have gone over the top with the distressing!!! LOLCreative Inspirations Challenge.
|Sketch - Creative Inspirations - Challenge 117|
The sweet image is 'Daisy Chain' from Lili of The Valley and is one of the new 'Here Come the Girls' range. The papers are from DCWV 'Once Upon a Time' Stack. I love these papers so much and am quite 'precious' with them!! LOL The netting across card is Jute Ribbon from Bunny Zoe's.
I was a very lucky bunny couple of weeks ago and won Bev Rochester's Prize draw for some Raffia Ribbon and Vintage Charms from Wild Orchid Crafts. They arrived last week and are gorgeous! So I would like to say thank you to Bev and also to Wild Orchid Crafts. I have used some of the Maroon Raffia Ribbon on this card and also some of the Vintage Charms which I think look really good. The Raffia is really good to work with - I thought it might be very fragile but you can unfurl it and do all sorts with it. As you can see I have made some 'shabby' bows and added pearls.
The Sheet Music was downloaded off internet and I have distressed it. In fact I have roughed up the edges of just about everything and have used tons of Distress Ink - 'Tea Dye'. I wanted to make it look very vintage which is perfect for the Craft Your Days Away Challenge.
