Not So Vintagey

Ok here is a card that challenged me!  This week at LLC pins and pearls were our inspiration.  That's not the part that challenged me.  I made the card for a friend's daughter and grad colors were gold, yellow and black.  THAT was the challenge!!  Not a super vintagey card (I'm sure that's not a word but it works for me - lol) but I've used lots of supplies from Live and Love Crafts.

I started out with some older papers from Maja Design's "Crea Diem" collection.  Very pretty!

My pins are all in my bouquet.  3 of them are pearl pins new to LLC and my 4th pin is holding my tiny "2012" tag.  A little hard to see because it has reflections on it.  Oooops hee hee.  Love the blackberries and all those extra flowers to which I added a touch of Gesso.  I also looped a few rounds of black pearls from LLC under my Prima flower I had in my stash.

AND I found a big gold tassel hidden in my stash too and who would have figured that years later it would have come in handy?!  And I tell myself I should purge my crafting supplies!!  What am I thinking?  LOL!!  The feather and ink well are Tim Holtz dies which I added some crackle paint to.
The image is called "Grad Girl 2012" from Saturated Canary and colored with my Copics. 

One last picture!!  How can I NOT show you these gorgeous laces?!!  So pretty with the rhinestones on there!

Well that's all I have to share today!!  I hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Side Profile of a Woman with Roses

Hi everyone! It's Alyce here :D Today I have a special little project to share... I'm really excited with this one as it took me a very long time to colour hehe! Here is my project featuring Pearls and Pins, and the image is called Side Profile of a Woman with Roses by Aurora Wings.

How yummy is all of this lace? There's a whole bunch of new lace in the store so dont' forget to check it out :) Also, the frame is from the new Pion Designs Flower Frames papers! I just cut the whole thing out :)

I've coloured her up using copic markers and the no lines technique. If you are looking for colours please pop over to my blog!! Thanks so much for stopping by today! :D

Pins and Pearl

Happy humpday, Becky here with you with my Pins and Pearls creation.

I have made this for a girl from work who is about to leave to have a baby, I have coloured 'Gift From Heaven' in with distress markers and reinkers. There is shabby white frantage around the image too.

I have made the card open in the 'normal' way, as it's easier when everyone is signing it. All of the products that I have used are listed at the end.

The papers are from Maja Designs Sofiero collection, the edges have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool and then Walnut Stain.

Enjoy the rest of your day.
