So this is it my first creation as a DT member for Fussy and Fancy Fridays, this means I get to play with LOTS of lovely embellishments and create beautiful cards that I wouldn't normally make.
Thank you so much for having me ladies - I'm so looking forward to working with you all.
The theme for the next two weeks is EMBELLISH IT! Dig out your gorgeous embellishments lovelies it's time to play :D
I had a bit of a practice making a bag (in pink) in a similar style before I actually made this. This one is more vintage shabby chic and monochromatic in its looks than the bag I made, mainly due to the colours. It's been made for my mother in law for her birthday. I don't think she reads my blog so I think I'm ok posting this here!
The design papers are from Lemoncraft and have been distressed.
Around one of the layers I've used some tiny flat back pearl string for a border.
I've dug out some of my Dusty Attic wood chip to make the trellis for the flowers and then added two resin corners.
The flowers all white creams and yellows are from The Ribbon Girl and Noor Design. I've used a magnolia, a large wild rose bud, small rose buds, a chrysanthemum, roses, lilies and gypsophila.
There are some small pieces of cream twine around the flowers. To complete the flowering garden look I've added a few tiny silver dragonfly charms.
The Mum sentiment in made up from Sizzix letter and design paper scraps. there have been mounted onto a wooden element from Scrapinic. Added to the bottom of this are two tiny wooden hearts.
To finish off the vintage shabby look I've added a splash of gesso.
Here are a couple of close ups of the flowers at different angels so you can see them better.
I've used this layout for a couple of creations now and have found it perfect for creating cards like this. If you'd like me to create a sketch layout let me know and I'll see what I can do to get one made up so you can use it too.
Hope you'll join us at Fussy and Fancy this fortnight
