Hope you all had a good weekend and thank you to all my friends who popped by to say hello at the Crafts and Me stand at Stamperama yesterday, it was good to see you all.
It's the start of a new theme at Live and Love Crafts and the theme this week is another favourite of mine, "Pearls". My mojo went walkabouts this week so this card has taken me almost a week to complete, I kept going back to it and not liking what I had done and I eventually ended up with more or less my original layout, grrrr. I have used PionDesigns Cornflower 6 x 6 and I didn't want to cover up the cornflowers at the bottom left and also wanted to keep the frame so I haven't layered up as much as I would normally but I think I like the result. I created the base of the card using MayaDesign Vintage Summer 1935.
I have painted Tilda with Distress Inks and edged all the layers with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I have used the new White Flower Sprays again with the Magnolia Berries and Kort and Godt Rolled Flowers and Chrysanthemums and added some gorgeous Pearl String, love these.
I also introduced some Frantage Shabby Blue Embossing powder to the Butterfly and here's a close up so you can really see how fabulous this embossing powder is. It has a hint of blue, white and gold and looks gorgeous in real life. Sandy should be listing a few colours imminently, so keep checking the store. A word of warning though if you decide to emboss metal, make sure you leave it to cool down before handling as it gets very hot.
I also decorated the inside, bottom left of the collage below, and gave the floral ovals the Shabby Blue embossing treatment, love the effect.
