It’s time for the new Card Concept #35 "Frilly and Fabulous" Inspiration Challenge!
I was inspired by the woodgrain, and of course, had to add a few rolled flowers in those soft, beautiful colors for my vintage style Mixed Media card.
I combined our Card Concept #35 challenge with the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #12 "MayFlowers" along with the Splitcoaststampers’ Way To Use It WT529 “It's About Time” Challenge (see details here and gallery here) and the Mix-Ability MIX119 "Texture" Challenge (see details here and gallery here).
The Card Concept is a bi-weekly challenge that has an inspiration photo along with a number of design styles that you can choose from to create your card- Clean and Simple, Clean and Graphic, Clean and Layered, Shabby Chic, Freestyle Collage, Classy and Elegant and Mixed Media.
So I hope you have time to vist all of the above challenge sites, gather your supplies together and come join in on the fun!!
To create this card:
Ink the Hardwood background stamp using Versamark™ ink and stamp onto a piece of Basic Gray cardstock.
Use a dry paintbrush to apply Silver Pearl-Ex® Powder and apply a layer of Mod Podge® to seal the cardstock (I have had the Pearl-Ex® for years and never used it- so much fun!!) :-)
Cut the panel into strips, adhere the strips to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and distress the edges using the Distressing Tool.
De-static a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the clock image from the retired set, Sense of Time using Versamark™ ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Early Espresso Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.
Ink the retired floral image from Elements of Style with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink, stamp over the clock face and color with Stampin’ Write Markers- Soft Sky, Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz.
Apply a bit of distressing with the Color Spritzer Tool and the Basic Gray Stampin’ Write marker and use a Faber-Castell® White Pitt Pen marker to add a few highlights to the flower centers.
Apply Crumb Cake Classic Ink with a Sponge Dauber to the edges and center of the inage to “antique” the paper, carefully “fussy-cut” the image out, mount a circle of Basic Black cardstock behind the image and apply a layer of Mod Podge® to seal the surface.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBD) Layered Lacy Square Die to cut out a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment from Sense of Time with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto die cut piece, ink the floral image from Elements of Style with Sahara Sand Classic Ink and stamp over the sentiment.
Punch the sentiment out with the 2” Circle Punch and mount onto another circle of Basic Black cardstock (also punched with the 2” Circle Punch).
Cut the remaining part of the die cut apart and adhere behind the layered sentiment circle, sponge Crumb Cake Classic Ink to “antique” the paper and use the Color Spritzer Tool and the Basic Gray Stampin’ Write marker to add additional distressing.
Apply a layer of Mod Podge® over the entire sentiment layer and set aside to dry.
Layer the crocheted lace over the background on a diagonal, add the 1” Bllack Satin Ribbon strip to cover the edge of the lace and mount the background panel to the Smoky Slate card base.
Mount the clock face and the sentiment to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Use the Big Shot™ with the My Favorite Things™ (MFT) Royal Rose and Mini Royal Rose Dies to create the rolled roses from Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride cardstock.
Use the Martha Stewart Leaf Punch with Wild Wasabi cardstock to create the leaves and mount the roses with the leaves to the card front.
Add the Pearls to the sentiment to finish off the card.
