o, me being me, I
suckered asked Sarah to stream for us this afternoon. She is an amazing card maker you can see her blog here. It never fails, I read her blog, watch her YouTube, or watch her on ustream she always makes me want to pull out my lace, trims, fabric, soft colours and do a little shabby chic. So, as I was saying, this afternoon she was streaming and that is exactly what I did. I actually lifted a card design I have been seeing her do lately to make this card.
I really think it turned out lovely, I dug into my stash and pulled out some lace, sari silk and cheese cloth. Dyed the cheese clothe with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine, the back round paper is from Donna Salazar’s Antiquities paper stack, and the front panel is a watercolour look, again using Colour Shine. The cork and wood veneer butterflies are out of my Scraptastic kits.
I really am completely satisfied with the way this card came out. the cheese cloth, lace and sari silk look fantastic all layered on eachother.
