Hey hey! How are you? I'm enjoying my free days. :) Not long anymore and I will be able to fully relax and enjoy in summer holidays. Can't wait! :)
We started renovating the apartment a couple of days ago. We're in no hurry so we are working there for as long as we feel like it - sometimes it can be the whole day and sometimes it can only be a couple of hours. We're planning a trip to Ikea in the following week or two. I'm really looking forward to this. I LOVE Ikea! :D
But enough babbling ... Let me rather tell you a couple of things about the card I'm about to show you. My sweet friend Rosie sent me a water brush and some distress inks a short while ago (thank you girl!!!) and after watching several YouTube videos about coloring with water brush I finally decided to give it a try. I still need a lot of practice, but I think the result is ok for the first time. Well, I'll let you be the judge. Just don't be too harsh, ok? ;) Anyways, here's the card.
I used the sweet Tilda with big tulips for my card. As I said, it was colored with distress inks. The inks I used are tea dye, vintage photo, antique linen, walnut stain and tattered rose. When the image was dry I added some glitter glue on the tulips. Around Tilda I stamped with Magnolia chocolate stamp. I used several different dies on the card. The lace border around Tilda and the big flower are Marianne design dies, the corner is Spellbinders die, the swirl on the left is TH die and the swirl above Tilda is a part of one Marianne design flower die. The small flowers were made with my craft punch. In the center of each flower and on the corner I added pearls from my stash. The pearl striengs behind the big flower are from Rayher. The lace and ribbon are from Crafty ribbons. You can find the lace here and the brown velvet ribbon is here. I didn't use and design paper on this card. I just used my old music notes sheet and coloured it with distress inks.
I would like to enter my card to the following challenges:
Magnolia Down Under: Sepia coloured image
Midweek Magnolias: Make it girly with ribbon and pearls
Bizzy Becs: Monochromatic + one other colour
Simon says: Anything goes
Tilda's town: Special occassions (birthday)
Have a wonderful day!
