Shabby Chic - I think?
This is a card I made last night while Hubby was away. I have used a "Leanne Ellis" Stamp from "Sugar Nellie", she has been stamped using "Adirondack - Latte" and I have coloured by just using The Adirondack ink and My water brush, and I have used my Whisper pens to colour the pink of the rose, and also to create the swirl background using a "heidi Swapp" stamp. The embossed background has been created using a cuttlebug plate, then inked over with the Adirondack ink and then Lightly sanded. I have then used some fibres and some Prima flowers.
When I colored it I had made the rose to dark, and it didn't look right so I tried to soften the look by colouring over it using a "Viva Pearl Pen - cream" I think it worked quite well..then I used silicone glue to put the flowers down and that ended up showing through so I used the pearl pen to disguise that too..Think It has been quite a happy accident because I quite like the look of it.
I plan to enter this into 7 challenges:
Crafty Creations - All shades of pale
Rosie Dee's - Brown&Cream with a cherry on top
Stamp Something - Brown with one other colour
ABC - Embossing
365 days (Thursdays challenge) - 5 things on one card..They are
1- Sheet of card (other than the cardstock) that I used in different ways,one part embossed and the other I stamped the background
Crafty Cardmakers - ribbons and fibres
Pile it on - 3 dimensional ..The image has been matted on 3d foam, then the girl has been cut out and used with 3d foam also the flowers add dimension
