TCC84 My Grace Is Sufficient

Hi Friends!!

We had a little break over the Christmas/New Year holiday but we are so thrilled to be back with The Card Concept #84 {Sweet Inspiration} Challenge!! 

I love this beautiful vintage photo and was inspired by the beautiful roses, vellum flowers, pearls and vintage feel to create a Shabby Chic/Mixed Media card.

If you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to check out the rest of the wonderful Design Team cards at The Card Concept as well as the entries at the other challenge sites- gorgeous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

1). Ink the Roses & Prayers (Unity Stamp Co) with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto a piece of white cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor the rose image using water-based markers.

2). Use a stencil brush with antique linen distress ink to “antique” the paper.  Using the brush with antique linen along with a stencil, apply additional ink around the flower image.  Die cut the panel with a stitched rectangle die.

3). Use a craft knife to cut around the lower leaf and stem, mount the panel onto a piece of crumb cake cardstock, adhere the striped designer paper (Graphic45 Botanical Tea ) along with the strip of crocheted ivory lace and a strip of 1” gray satin ribbon, wrapping the ends of the ribbon behind the panel.

4). Mount the entire panel onto a piece of dark gray cardstock, mount the entire panel onto a white card base.

5). Ink the sentiment from The Vine (Unity Stamp Co) with Versafine™ Onyx Black ink, stamp onto the scrap piece of stenciled cardstock from step #2,  cardstock, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, die cut with a stitched rectangle die.  Mount onto the card front under the cut leaf and stem image.  Adhere the die cut roses along with the punched leaves and pearls. 

6). Finish off the card using a clear glitter pen to add shimmer to the die cut roses and stamped rose petals.
