Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, but life has been hectic. I am behind on my blog hopping and I have stash just crying out to be used.
This offering was inspired by three challenges. I love the Holly & Madison Digi stamps over at Charmed Cards and Crafts and don't need much prodding to use them. Dotties world asked us to use two 3D butterflies this week. I have used a charm and what the girls at work are referring to as my card signature - an Anitas silver dimensional butterfly. (Must remember to buy more).
Kaboodles and Totally Papercrafts both asked us to use digi stamps so this card fit right in.
This is my second attempt at vintage cards. I started with my usual 2 card blanks (very easy way to make easel cards) and some text paper that I have had in my stash for more than 5 years. Just like last time I got happy with a candle. This time I remembered to put the distress ink on AFTER.
This is my first time using Tim Holtz Crackle paint and I will admit that I have ordered more as a result of this card. It's great stuff and if you haven't tried it yet, you need some. I'm still working on putting multiple flowers onto one card. I think I went a bit mental with them on this one, but it was fun.
I have used a lot of different distress inks on this one. Antique linen, Aged Mahogany, worn lipstick and fired brick. I have also added gems as stick on pearls. My flower centers are pearls from a broken bracelet and the flowers them selves are Prima.
