My card this week was certainly a labor of love. You cant see it from the card above, but that music paper is at the bottom of the eyelet border punch and the music is peeking out from underneath that layer. I find the vintage look beautiful, but I really do struggle to make it come together sometimes.. I gravitate towards the clean and simple, but it was fun to get my fingers dirty and play.
So what else did I do to this card… Well, after I cute the fabric and ribbon I pulled at the edges to fray and make it look a little aged. I sponged some vanilla craft ink out on the edges and added some pretty self adhesive pearls.
I stamped the girl from greeting card kids in stazon ink, and water colored the image with markers. When I was done, I finished it off with smooch accent ink, shiny, sparkly top coat and carried the red ever so slightly through the scarf and the trip on the coat and hat. It’s actually very sparkly in real life. The ground also has sparkles which makes the ground look frosty. In any case.. I had fun… More details and a pleated ribbon tutorial, check out a direct link here.. http://stampinfunwithselene.blogspot…lenge-167.html
