Good evening Blogger friends...
I have a card for you today which I've coloured with Distress Markers. I was lucky enough to get some for my Birthday a few weeks ago. Thanks Mum & Dad :-)
I've coloured a few images with them, I think this was the second. I've really been enjoying using them, although I have a lot to learn. I find it very relaxing and I can pretend I've got some artistic talent because I'm holding a paintbrush. lol.
Today's card is the lovely Tilda with Winding Flowers...
Sorry about the photos, but I just don't seem to be able to get the right settings. Any tips on what settings to have my camera on would be appreciated.
The little tag at the top has a discreet '50' on it. A lady doesn't always want to broadcast her age does she? My daughter is giving it to her boyfriend's Mum.
The papers are Raspberry Road Antebellum except for the inside of the card where I used Raspberry Road Always & Forever. They've been distressed with Vintage Photo ink.
The flowers are from WOC. I did try to make my own, but I wasn't happy with them. First I tried rolled roses and then I tried hand made roses using five petal flower punches. Spent loads of time faffing about only to throw them in the bin and grab some WOC ones.
I think the lace is also from WOC and I've died it with black tea to give it an antique look. Pearls and ribbon are from The Hobby House.
Here's a closer look at Tilda.
I positioned the little butterfly to make it look like it was flying out of her hand.The larger butterfly is a Cheery Lynn die.
I enjoyed making this card as I got to use lots of my new purchases I bought at the Whichcraft show recently.
