Kindred Spirits

Hello everyone! Today I would like to share a card with you which follows the latest challenge from The Shabby Tea Room and also follows the latest Deconstucted Sketch.

Over at The Shabby Tea Room, you are asked to create a card or project inspired by the photo and INCLUDE FLOWERS, BUTTONS AND PRINT/SENTIMENT!

....and the sketch

I really wanted to make a girly shabby chic/vintage card this week. I had printed this lovely vintage image quite a while ago and felt it would be perfect for my focal point.

I used a vintage button to continue with my sentiment I think captures the young girl.

Stamp: JustRite Stampers Friendship  Blooms

Ink: memento Tuxedo Black, Distress Ink Antique Linen

Other: Spellbinders Butterfly Corner and Back to Basics Tags, Die-Namics Fishtail Flag Stax, Martha Stewart Deco Flowers, SU! Vintage Buttons, Hug Snug Lyric Rose Seam Binding, Green Tara Flowers. Image from the Internet.

Treasured Memory ~ Blubelle Collection ~ Kaisercraft

Hello friends! This is my second project using Kaisercraft's Blubelle Collection. The photo is of myself and my siblings many years ago. I was just seventeen in this picture! Again I wanted to have a go at using mixed media elements in my background. I will share some close ups at how I achieved this....

After working out where my mats and embellishments were going, I inked around these areas and used a mask and modelling paste to add texture. I also used script stamps to add some interest.I printed a number of butterflies and added them to my layout. I love butterflies and used approx 5 in this layout.

I painted this wooden title with gesso. Once dry, I stamped in random spots over this by pressing the ink pad directly onto the title. Applying different pressure doing this creates an interesting look.

I wanted an oversized bloom on my page. I didn't have any in my stash so I created my own using lace.

I painted this flourish using gesso and stamped over it using a script stamp. Subtle and pretty!
