Okay, on to my card ...
I wanted to create a vintage with a modern twist style card, so began by covering a peice of card with old book pages. I then aged them using white acyrlic paint, raw umber pan pastel and magenta pan pastel. Once I was happy "faffing", (as my family call it), I then covered the background with oodles of "Lots of Love" die cuts using a Tattered Lace die. However, there was a cunning plan in my head whilst cutting these out ...
I tried very hard to place the die across my card so that I could then create another background (with the negative) and came up with another background (see photo below). I have mounted it on to gold card to make it "pop". If I am now 100% honest, this background is still waiting to be worked on ...!
I then stamped Tatty Twinkle "He Loves Me" on to book pages too. I have embossed the image in both white and clear embossing powders. Tatty has been coloured with Prisma pencils.
I have created a heart shape (using old book pages) and mounted Tatty on to this. Then I created a pleated ribbon using Kraft card and layered lots of die cuts behind the heart. As a finishing touch, I have added stamped butterfly images, and yes, on to book pages.
The sentiment is one I found in a hat box (which has been sitting on a dresser for eons) which was full of goodies. I do so need to go through all my boxes and drawers and really organise myself but that will be for another day as I think it could be a long task!
Right am off shopping with youngest son and off for a spot of lunch too.
Take care everyone and don't get blown away by these strong winds,
