Spring is on it way,
bringing with it new growth and energy.
The sun is shining through the window as I write warming my face and heart,
the snow is melting and I can almost see leaf buds on the trees ;O)
I LOVE IT!!
This colourful card is a result of the inspiration lighter days bring,
but still trying to give a slight vintage feel of spring in the '50's.
I really like the colours of this card, I have used Tim Holtz Distress
Ink pads to age the paper ( Vintage photo and old paper)
A close up of the 'Storyteller' roses, I have used 'star dust' stickles
to give them some shimmer, and attached a pearl to the end of a long pin.
A close up of the bunting I drew and cut out, using 'My Minds Eye'
design papers from the 'Laundry Line' collection.
I have attached the bunting using both glue and 3D tape to give it a bit of depth.
I also used 3D tape to attach the stamp that I have cut out using a spellbinder.
The back ground design paper is from October Afternoons collection; The Thrift shop.
I have been saving it just waiting for the right project to use it, and I am pleased I used it now.
The stamp is from a 'waltzing Mouse' collection.
I have used Archival Ink -Coffee (no thanks i've got a cup of tea ;)
and Distress reinkers to give a touch of colour.
A dress makin pin and a scrap of golden organza ribbon.
I have also used kraft paper and watercolour paper in this project.
