Where did January go???We couldn't believe how many amazing entries we had for our last challenge at Let's Ink It Up, it was hard to choose the winner and top 5 I can tell you!! Thanks so much to everyone who entered and congratulations to the winner and Top 5. I can't wait to see everyone's creations for our new challenge, the theme is Romance/Valentines!
As always we have a wonderful sponsor with a fab prize for the winner! This month our sponsor is Whiff of Joy and they are offering the lucky winner a gorgeous stamp 'Willow with Champagne'!
I've gone a bit shabby chic (well definitely shabby lol) for my DT card this time around.
I've used some embossed cream card for the base and made a background using distress inks (antique linen, tea dye and spun sugar) overstamped with big swirly corner stamps from Elusive Images. The vellum is stamped with a script stamp using tea dye DI and the hearts are also made using stamps from Elusive Images. I stamped them with cream pigment ink and embossed with clear EP and then added more of the same distress inks.
The butterflies are made using an Anna Griffin punch. The ribbons, lace (dyed with distress inks), pearls and tassel are all from my stash. The flower is made using a strip of the leftover bp, punched with a MS punch and concertina'd before layering it over some lace.
I love making cards that start out as plain white card, and I really enjoyed making this although its not my usual style at all.
