Well it's my first week on the DT over at the The Shabby Tearoom! Week #80's challenge is to
take inspiration from this beautiful inspiration photo and create a card or project using all neutrals - white, cream, kraft, brown, black.
This week's sponsor is Ellephantastic, and TSTR winner will receive 4 digi images of their choice.
So, onto my card - I loved the idea of using neutrels so much I made to projects!
My first being this card. I've used soft papers, lace and doilies to match the delicate tones and textures of the inspiration pic. For the centre frame I embossed some kraft card and lightly swept some white paint over it to to highlight, then used this fab brown rub on frame and finally this gorgeous Melissa Frances frame backed with a vintage image and little bird I cut from paper.
I made the flower by gathering layering different laces whch I've secured with a brad. The little 'pebble' at the top of the card was made with a magnifying resin stone, which I backed with a small piece of paper and decorated with some pearls.
For my second, I made a little tag and used this cute little witch digi stamp (Halloween Charlotte from Ellephantastic) coloured in with Pro Markers and a touch of glitter. Sanded wood textured Core'dinations topped with a doily and this fab spider web (cut from a sheet of paper). Painted corrugated card, Bakers Twine and a fun sentiment give it an extra spooky feel!
