I was asked to make a birthday card for a lady who is turning 50. I wasn't sure whether she would like the cute image, so I decided to rather create something a bit different.
I decided to make a card in one of my favourite colour combination - pink and brown. As you can see I did a lot of stamping and distressing.The pink paper I used in the background is from Peovo craft. I stamped over it with Stampabilities' Faded text backround stamp. For stamping I used Tim Holtz's Brushed corduroy distress ink. With this same ink I also distressed the edges of the pink paper and colored the doily lace (originally was white). The circle I used for the center of mycard was originally plain white paper, which I colored with Tim Holtz's Spun sugar distress ink. I distressed around the circle with Tim Holtz's Weathered wood distress ink. Once my circle wascolored and distressed, I stamped two flowers on one side. For thisI used Inkido's flower stamp. After that I masked the flowers and stamped over the whole circle with Stampabilities' Faded text background stamp again. I really like how this turned out. Butterflies are stampedas well. I used Inkadinkado's Fluid motion stamp to get them. I stamped them on the white paper and colored them with Promarkers. I cut them out and just glued them to the card. As simple as that. :D Flowers are Prima and brads are Making memories. Ribbon and lace are from my stash.
Any comments or suggestions?
Wishing you all a wonderful day/evening!
I'd like to add this card to the following challenge:
