Shabby Chic/Vintage- Estabished Elegance
It's been a little while since I last blogged. My best friend for more than 20 years came from NY to visit my family and I here in OH, for a few days. We had such an amazing time! My daughters love her as much as I do. We are so blessed to have her in our life! I miss her very much. I am really looking forward to seeing her again at Christmas time!
Onto my card:
I created this card for the Inspiration Challenge over on Splitcoaststampers.com.
I absolutely LOVE the new Established Elegance set from SU! It's a beautiful Vintage style set which is RIGHT up my alley!
I used the small floral stamp in the set to create my handmade dp. I then colored the flowers in with Pink Pirouette and then added a bit of Blushing Bride to give the flowers some depth. I used Certainly Celery and then enhanced it with some Pear Pizzazz.
Next, I took the flourish stamp in the set and inked it up using Sahara Sand. I then stamped the flourish all around the flowers. Next, I took some Crumb Cake ink to give my paper that old distressed Vintage look. Next, I roughed up all the edges of my paper. I then took some Soft Suede ink and dusted each edge with that. After my dp was complete, I started to play around with it and created the above design!
I hope you like my Shabby Chic/Vintage -Established Elegance card!
Until next time...
