Rose Angel

Rose AngelSince I got confused with the dates, and entered another card into the Aurora Wings Challenge with a whole week to spare, I made this one for the Feathers and Fur challenge, so I could stick with “tradition” and come slithering in with a last minute entry :)  I used the beautiful Rose Angel by Mitzi at Aurora Wings.  I colored her up with my SN markers, and I must say, the language at times wasn’t too ladylike, trying to do so many whites, yet keep everything separate…..I think I managed (thanks to the language?)  I went through a lot of papers until I found the blue and pink DP….then distressed the edges of that and the image.  I die cut a piece of white card stock with a Tim Holtz die, and layered it over a pretty blue, for the background.  The lace that I found in my stash matched the lace on the angels dress perfectly!  I won some roses from Wild Orchid in a challenge recently, and I paired them with some other roses from my stash.  I die cut the feathers with an unbranded die, then inked the edges lightly with Distress Ink.  I assembled the roses, feathers and some die cut leaves and added some silver pearls tucked here and there.  A few more pearls balanced the finished product.

I DoI am loving this sketch, from The Sketchy Challenges, so much, that I had to make ONE more card with it (doubt it will be the last one!!).

I used an image from Sweet Escapes, sadly I’m not seeing it in the shop any longer, but I’m so happy to have it, as it makes a lovely focal point for a wedding card!! After coloring the roses, I added some Wink of Stella to the bride’s dress, and some pearl jewellery.  I fussy cut the image out, the assembled the card, following the sketch, and using all kinds of scraps of paper that I had :)  The sentiment and the silver accents are from a sticker set that I recently dug up from deep in my stash, some pearls, and the silver edging on the panels are peel off strips.  It’s great to be a bit more prepared for the last minute wedding cards that people always seem to need!!

Teacup and Roses

Teacup and RosesHello there! Today I have a card for you that features one of the beautiful images from Power Poppy, Everything’s Rosy. I colored it with my SN markers, using a color scheme to give it a vintage-y look.  I then fussy cut the rose in the foreground out. I placed the main image on a background from a torn page from an old Book of Knowledge (I grabbed the whole set after my mom passed away, thinking I’d hit the crafty jackpot. After I’d literally torn into about half the books, I found out it was a very rare set, worth thousands!), that I inked with Distress Inks.  I die cut a circular frame, and distressed the edges, then cut a pretty cream colored butterfly to tuck behind ( I enhanced the embossing with a light swipe of ink).  After getting everything in place, I popped the fussy cut rose over the edge of the frame, layered the whole bit on some purple card stock with distressed edges, and added some cream and purple pearls.  Love the aged look of this card :)
