graphic 45, pink and micro beads

Hello there. Anyone who knows me knows that pink isn't one of my favourite colours. However when it comes to G45 they make pink palatable even for me.

All the papers used here are from the Botanical tea collection 12x12 and 6x6. I also used a couple of stamps from the collection and some of the embellishments.

I inked all the papers with vintage photo distress ink to remove the white cut edges. The die cuts are from the Sue Wilson Salzburg collection and leaves. I also added some lace that goes well with these papers.

Something I love to use is micro beads. I wanted something to add texture without being sparkly. They are perfect as they give a little twinkle. I used them on the leave flourishes and on the edge of the die cuts.

As you can see the 2 postcards are not stuck down. I stamped a sentiment on each in vintage photo and added glossy accents to highlight some areas and add interest.

The butterflies are fussy cut from the 12x12 papers and attached only at the centre and wings molded to add dimension. I added glossy accents to body of butterflies. 

I finished card off by adding some pearls.

As usual I hope you like my make, Theresa xx
