Hi everyone! I'm so glad that today is Friday. This has been a long week for me! I wanted to tell you all about something that happened the other day that totally made my day and well, actually made my whole week! I woke up and checked my e mail just like I do every morning, and I had a comment left on my blog from someone named Deena who told me that she had something on her blog for me. I went to her blog and checked it out and saw the sweetest thing ever! Deena had asked her blog readers to share with her blogs that inspired them, and Freida had left a comment telling her my blog was her inspiration! Really Freida said the sweetest things about me and it just lifted my spirits tremendously! You can see what Freida said here, and while you're there take a gander at Deena's blog because it totally rocks! Thanks so much Freida for your support and friendship!
Okay, now to today's card. I used the new squigglefly image that Rich Davis drew called Vintage Flower Maiden. She's colored with Copic markers. I printed one image on card stock and one on vellum and cut her dress out of the vellum to piece over the colored piece. I thought the vellum softened it a bit. I was going for the look of a nightgown that has a filmy piece of fabric over the under layer. Not sure I achieved that exactly, but it is softer than the original.
After I colored her I clipped the corners and mounted it on some light blue card stock, and then I found an old necklace in a can of junk jewelery I have and I cut it apart and stuck two of the heart shaped pearls in the top corners. The designer paper is from K and Company and I used a notch corner punch on all the corners so I could string some iridescent thread around the edges. All of this is mounted on some ivory card stock.
I don't do vintage or retro type cards very well, so I don't do them often - but this image just charmed me. I had fun working with it!
Wishing you all a wonderful day and I'll be back tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
