Take The Time To Do Nothing.

fredag 17 augusti 2012

Hello and welcome back to my blog!
I told you in my last post about the 3-D images that I found, and while I was on the go, I made another card with the sweet roses.

This time I took a few pages from an old book, cut them into three pieces and sponged the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
After I adhered them on a Nature Garden Collection paper from Prima, I stamped directly on the card with various stamps. I also added the images and the lovely lace from The Funkie Junkie´s Boutique.

For the swirl I first glued a blue paper on grungepaper and cut it out with one Spellbinders Floral Fluorishes die. After I had embossed it I painted the swirl with acrylic paint.
For the sentiment I first adhered tissue tape on a piece of blue paper and painted over it with Gesso.
After it dried I stamped with a Rox stamp and colored the flowers with Distress Markers and added a few dots with white Pearl Maker. The corners were painted with Picket Fence Crackle Paint. I hanged it up with twine and a brad.

The last was to attach a chain to the watch, and a bow made ​​of seam binding.
Thanks so much for your visit today, have a nice weekend!
Hugs, Birgit
