Vintage Fairies


It's time again for the Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge and this week it's Fairies. I love fairies and have been wanting to do a project with this vintage image for some time. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to use it for this week's design team card. I also made the card with the Shabby Tea Room and City Crafter (pink) challenges in mind. The challege this week at the Shabby Tea Room is to make something with chipboard. I like making my own chipboard, which I do by cutting two or three layers of thin cardboard with dies and then stacking and gluing them to achieve chipboard thickness. Since I wanted this chipboard to be white, these were cut with the white backing that comes in the SU designer paper packs. I also dry embossed the butterfly for more texture. Once glued, I sponged them with Creamy Caramel ink and coated them with chunky glitter. The card base is Pink Pirouette and then a layer of Very Vanilla that I stamped a pattern on with Vintage Photo distress ink. Both layers were sponged with Creamy Caramel. The vintage image was printed on my home printer and torn out. The edges were sponged with Creamy Caramel and Vintage Photo. I cut a piece out of a doily and added a bow of crinkly seam binding and a Prima rose plus a vintage style LaMode button on the butterfly.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see what I have to offer for the Creative Imaginations Wednesday Challenge. I missed last week's challenge (due to my vacation) and the introduction of a new designer on the team, April Rose. I hope you will stop by the challenge blog to see what our talented designers have to offer!

Blessings & hugs,
