Another fabulous day here in NE Scotland, we are being spoilt! You wait, we'll suffer for it later in the summer. I expect we are having our summer right now. . .! LOL.
Today I have a card that I whipped up using a new image that is being released tomorrow (Wednesday) over in the Delicious Doodles Shop. The image was inspired by my visit to the Highland Folk Museum weekend before last. Loads of old houses and vintage stuff. I took dozens of photos and plan on turning most of them into digi's at some stage.
Might have to wait a bit though, as my thumb joint is giving me a lot of pain right now, especially when I try to grasp things. It's my drawing hand too, which is a bummer!!
The image I made for tomorrow's release was in a window in an old fashioned Post Office house, and was a beautiful little stand with a large pot of Geraniums in.
Here is a watermarked version of 'Geranium Stand':
And this is the card I made using it, in a Vintage style. The image was printed out in a brown to look sepia toned.
Dp's are from Bearly Mine 'Lacey Vintage Dreams'. The brown cardstock is from the stash, and is a leathery texture which I roughed up with some sand-paper, and then smudged gold metallic rub-on over. I also layered with a bit of gold mirri. A close-up:
I have used some lace from my stash too, a couple of strips that are staggered, with brown ink dabbed on to help with the vintage look, and a thinner pale brown one on top.
I have added some antique brads, some brown organza ribbon tied in a bow, and an ear-ring looped through the bow. This was bought in a sale and I have used it here in the place of a charm. Just loved the way it looked with the vintage style of the card, even though it isn't actually vintage itself.
Right, I'm off to link this up to a few challenges now then. TTFN!
