This is my DT entry for the new Sweet Lilac Flowers Challenge. This month it is vintage.
I started by cutting a piece of taupe card and inking it using distress inks: antique linen, old paper, tea dye and vintage photo in that order. i then stamped the music scroll and small leafy swirl from Claritystamp randomly across card using antique linen and old paper distress inks so they are there but not very obvious. Next i embossed it with a spellbinder embossing folder and wiped across it with enchanted gold gilding wax from pebeo. The embossed areas really took it up. Next i stamped my sentiment with coffee archival and clear embossed it.
Then i cut a smaller strip of taupe card and gave it same treatment. Next i mounted the 2 pieces onto a piece of brown card which i inked with vintage photo around edges. I attached a piece of lace and it bridged the 2 pieces nicely. Next i embellished the card with sweet lilac flowers. i inked the small white blooms with antique linen and the faintest hint of vintage photo. A brown pearl finished them nicely. Lastly i added 3 pearls in corner.
Then i finished card off by adding insert. I stamped 2 sentiments again from Claritystamp and added some music scrolls and small leafy swirls.
finished size is 8x8.
Whatever you do enjoy yourselves , Theresa xx
As I have used so many Clarity stamps on this card i would also like to enter
it into the Clarity stamp challenge which is vintage for this month.
