Today I want to share with you a card I did with my favourite stamps: those of Magnolia! :)
I coloured my card with Distress inks on Langton hot pressed paper 300gsm, and I played with lots of embellies to create what I had in mind.
On this card I used Magnolia papers from the "Once upon a time collection", the pink paper with the crowns, and a piece of the "pages from a book", which I stuck sideways underneath the image. I distressed it, tore it from various parts, crumbled it, and at the end I added some strokes of gesso. Coming out of one of the torn pieces, I did this small bouquet of flowers. In this close-up image, you can also notice the cute heart made of beads.
I also added the elegant touch with a large piece of lace material which I had in my stash. I think I had kept it aside some years ago, and it was part of a wedding dress someone had given away.
It is beautiful, as you may notice from the card, I placed it under the other bouquet of flowers. You may see a part of the white flower, some of its lace leaves sticking out, and also two of its flowers, on which I placed some pearls in their centre.
Behind the image I put a scalloped edge, made out of a border punch I have. I used Norma's tutorial which was very helpful for a first time. Tilda has some stardust stickles on her pretty dress, and some silver ones on her crown. The pearl strings and the crown stamp finished off the image nicely.
Lace, grey striped ribbon and a crown charm sewn into organza ribbons decorate the lower part of my card.
What else? Oh, the sentiment is from a Stampin' Up set, and finally, for the first time I played with some gesso around the edges and on the flowers. I hope you like this card, and that you let me know what you think about it.
Another angle shot, which shows you the spots I did around the image, also with gesso ;) Finally added two star rhinestones, pink and dainty. I had to stop myself, cause I would have added more stuff!! I shall use this card for a friend who will be celebrating her brithday verrry soon!!
I hope you have a Wonderful Sunday, my dear friends.
