Happy Monday! I just finished making some Pumpkin Oatmeal Coconut cookies - oh yum! I've got this "romantical" card to share with you today. Romantical, for those of you who watch the Food Network, is from the Paula Deen dictionary. Hee hee hee! I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Cheery Lynn Designs #42 - Doilies
Craft Your Passion - Power of 3 (I used 3 die cuts.)
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
I stamped Jack and Ginger (Stampavie) on watercolor paper and then colored it with the wonderful Distress Ink Markers and the Tim Holtz Water Brush - Detailer Brush Nib. I used the following colors of markers:
Tattered Rose - skin
Victorian Velvet - flowers, lady's skirt and hat
Antique Linen - lady's cardigan and shoes
Peeled Paint - leaves and stems of flowers
Frayed Burlap - lady's purse, man's jacket, belt, and shoes, ground
Pumice Stone - hair
Stormy Sky - man's jeans
For my card base, I cut some brown cardstock to a 5.25" square. I die cut the Anastasia border (Cheery Lynn Designs) from blue patterned paper and adhered that to the left side with some more patterned papers. The Polynesian Sails Oval die (Cheery Lynn Designs) is actually two dies in one - you get the delicate oval die cut as well as a sweet little doily from the center of it. The doily is die cut from white cardstock and then sponged with Stormy Sky and Antique Linen distress inks. The pink textured panel at the bottom is a Watercolor Distress technique (from Technique Junkies) that I created with Antique Linen, Spun Sugar, and Victorian Velvet distress inks. I used the Flower Flourish embossing folder to give this piece some texture, and I lightly sponged some brown ink so you can see the raised shapes better. A sweet little Decorative Corner die cut at the bottom is all I needed to finish this card.
