Hello friends and visitors! It's the middle of the month and that means it's time for a new challenge at Scrapy Land. The theme this time is Spring Blooms plus use any brand die that Scrapy Land sells. They sell over 50 brands, so that shouldn't be too difficult!
Since I made this card quite some time ago for a friend who was in the hospital, I'm a little foggy on all the details. This was her favorite shade of pink. Unfortunately for me, but wonderful for her, she is now in Heaven. I will do my best to give you the high points. For my focal image, I chose one of my favorite Tim Holtz dies of all time (I do use it a lot!) Sizzix Ornate Frame. I covered it in texture paste and lightly sprinkled with Frantage embossing powder, heating after the paste had dried.
The two larger flowers in pink are made with Sizzix Tattered Florals die. The beautiful single white blossom was made by my sweet friend and talented teamie Samra (Paper Talk With Samra). Please pay her a visit if you haven't. She makes the most elegant cards in her unmistakable shabby chic style.
I tucked in a Felicity Tiny Doily by Cheery Lynn behind the flowers. I love splashing my inky backgrounds with water and blotting with a clean cloth to get the spots. Splash with more water to get inky dots.
Foliage is by Prima's Forest Leaves.
The berries, lace and vintage seam binding are from my stash.
I tucked a couple of pieces of the lovely Quinn Flourish by Memory Box between my layers. Everything is layered on a stamped (Prima) and aged panel. The pink panel is stenciled with paste and a Tim Holtz stencil and painted with gesso and Worn Lipstick Distress ink. Looks like a little Vintage Photo or possibly Frayed Burlap, too. There's a little script stamping in the background, although I don't know who's script it is. I can tell you the tiny birds are from Tim's Tiny Things set. That one gets a lot of action, too. The stamped and colored butterfly was hoarded from another life time ago, so I don't know who the maker is on that either.
That's all for today! I hope you'll stop by Scrapy Land Challenges to see all the amazing projects my talented teamies made using their Spring Blooms! Then it's over to you so you can be in the running for a generous $15 gift certificate from the Scrapy Land shop.
