Roses On Paper and Just Magnolia Challenges!
Hello and Happy Saturday!
While getting my thoughts together for this weeks upcoming challenges, I decided to make one card combining two challenges. This weeks Roses On Paper challenge is to make a card featuring hearts and Just Magnolia's challenge is to distress your card. I'm not that sure of myself when is comes to distressing, so afraid I'll mess up or something. However, I did distress along the edges of my images mat and the flowers.
My design paper is by DCWV (Nana's Nursery baby girl stack). After fiddling around with several pieces of design papers, I made a rough outline for my card base and sewed the pieces together. My image (Tilda with Birdcage)) is colored in with Copic Markers and matted onto oval shaped Nestie dies. The strip of c/s that features the sentiment is distressed also. Inks used were Copic Markers, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink (used to stamp my image) and SU's Pink Piourette and Impress Old Rose.
To embellish my card, I used ribbon, flowers and heart shaped brads.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and thank you so much for stopping by!
