What a let down after yesterday's gorgeous sunny start! Back to the wet stuff late in the afternoon, and the same since. Would be soooo nice to have a few good days in a row - might be able to get the lawn cut!!
My card for today then has been made with a few challenges in mind. I decided I wanted to use my 'Waltz' silhouette image to make a vintage style card with, as that is the theme at Creatalicious Challenges this time. 'Vintage' also turns out to be the new theme at Polka Doodles this week, so I am entering this there too.
I have followed the sketch from Midnight Madness for my layout.Wasn't too sure what to use for the 'gathered' bit at the side, then I remembered some old net curtain I had in the cupboard. So out it came and got itself cut up. Fiddly to stick or what?!! This stuff just doesn't want to do as it's told! You should see the mess of sticky bits behind the facade on this card!! Here is the sketch:
I was going to use a huge brooch for the card, but it was too heavy, so I had to resort to one of my trusty flowers instead! LOL. I have also used flowers for the corners - my 'Rose Corner' image coloured in a pale tan faded to white. I wanted the roses to look vintage. I think they work. The finished coloured version was scanned in and printed several times on an A4 sheet to get the layers. 'Flowers' are the theme over at Fab 'n' Funky this week, so I'm entering this here too.
My papers are digital and are from Funky Hand and Cupcake Designs. The flower is made with my usual punches. I have added stickles to the rose corners, the punched flower and round the oval frame too.
Okeedokee then. Need to go down the chemist now they're open and pick up some more skin cream. Still fighting the old Psoriasis, pain in the butt stuff and so sore! Anyone got any miracle cures?!! LOL. Honestly, I'm fed up with going around smelling like an old shed - this cream really mings!! See ya later folks!
