Anyways, the challenge this week has been set by our lovely Gunn, and this is what she wants:
"This time I would love to see Vintage style on your cards, and be inspired by summer. It could be the colors, flowers, time of year and so on. Make the card or project in Vintage style and you are good if you - REMEMBER TO INCLUDE A CHARMED DOWNLOAD, that`s the most important thing with these challenges."
I used one of my favourite images from our newest collection "Once upon a Time", along with one of the new sentiments in the bundle - isn't this mother & child image just fantastic?? Enveloping her baby in her love and protection she gazes with pride at her newborn:
I used one of the FABULOUS charms from The Girls Paperie collection, I LOVE THESE! Also on there are some hydrangea petals I had from years ago, they are mulberry but with a special coating on them, just fab. Pearls and crystals are Prima - that BEAUTIFUL rose is Prima Belle Arte Aquarius - papers are DCWV - and Prima lace. I coloured the image with Copic markers.
I decorated the inside too and used one of our sentiments from the same bundle. I used stickles frosted lace and very fine glitter dust around the edges of the sentiment here and drew a few doodle flourishes in one corner. I also used a Martha Stewart corner punch here.
I roughly concertinaed the top of one of the edges, not sure if you can see that too well, perhaps better on this picture:
All edges inside and out have been roughened with a Tim Holtz Paper Distresser.
I can see myself using this image for all my new baby cards in future, it's totally adorable!!
