Good morning! Sorry I've been a bit quiet lately, but my sweetie and I have been spending most of the time in the apartment.It's been a lot of work, but it's really nice to see how things are slowly coming together as they should. Just a little bit longer (maybe 2 weeks?) and we will be able to move to our new place. Can't wait! :)
In the evenings (if I still have any energy left :P) I try to do some crafting. It's taking me a couple of days to finish a card, but that's fine. I'm not in a hurry. One of the cards I finished recently is this one ...
I'm really into blue and brown colour combination these days so I decided to make a card in these colours too. The papers I used on this card are from K&Co. I was going for a bit more vintage look so I distressed the edges with my scissors and then inked them with TH distress ink. I used distress inks for colouring the image (it's a digi stamp from A day for daisies) too. Around the image I stamped with Recollections stamp and on the tag and on the white flower I stamped with Faded text background stamp from Stampabilities.As you can see I used several different dies and punches on my card - I used MS butterfly punch, my border punch, Marianne design leaf die, Spellbinders circle die and corner die and a doily circle die that my friend kindly let me borrow to make a few die cuts (thankyou Jasmina). :) Flowers are from my stash. Gold crystals are cut from a crystal mesh that I had in my stash and the lace is from Crafty ribbons.
