Valou - Inspirational Post

Hello everybody! 

Valou here for the inspiration post today. Today I share a card with you.



To realize this card, I used papers "Inkido" and some paper " Bazzil Cardstock Blanc ". I inked edges with some ink "Distress Walnut Stain". In every corner, I stuck half a white pearly pearl.


Then, I used an image "Inky Impressions", whom you can find HERE.

I colorized it in the following way: 

- Ink " Distress Vintage Photo " and "Distress Tattered Rose" for the skin. 
- Ink "Distress Antique Linen" and "Distress Walnut Stain" for hair. 
- Ink "Distress Worm Lipstick". 
- Ink "Distress Broken China". 
- Ink "Distress Pumice Stone".
- Ink "Distress Tumbled Glass".
- Pencil aquarellable yellow.

I cut the image and I stuck it on a die-cut realized with a dies " Spelbinders-Nestabilities - Majestic Ovals ".


Then, for the decoration, I added the following flowers: 

- Big pink rose ( 2 tones) (30 mm).
- Big turquoise blue rose (30 mm).
- Cloth white Rose.
- Pink Lilidaft.
- Buttons of white pink.
- White snowballs.

I also added a die-cut realized with a dies "Lily Of The Valley".


Under the image, I stuck a band of blue paper " Inkido " which I beforehand drilled with a puncher border " Tonic ". Edges are inked to the ink "Distress Walnut Stain".

I also stuck of the pink lace then a bow which I realized with a piece of ribbon " blue Organza ". To finish, I stuck a butterfly realized with a dies " Joy!Crafts" and a small puncher. On the body of the small butterfly, I stuck two small white pearly pearls.


Have a lovely day! 

Kiss

Lili With Berries - Faux Silk


Hello, Crafty Peeps!

Normally I post on Saturdays, but since I used an Inky Impressions image for one of my other challenges, I thought I would share it here on our Inspiration blog!

The Image I am using for my project is Lili with Berries.  I wanted to post a project this week, and since I already had this image colored up (and it was almost a perfect match for my card stock and DP) I decided to use it.  

I rubbed just a little too hard on my tissue paper while executing the "Faux Silk" technique.  The tissues tore in a couple of places and I had to "improvise".  I didn't have time to color another image and start over so I just went with it.
 I was attempting to create a distressed "faux silk" layer behind the image panel...like a piece of crumpled silk fabric.  My ever observant husband asked, 
"What is this challenge?  Stamp on crumpled up tissue paper? "  
"No, dear," I replied, "this is supposed to be a faux silk look."  
"Oh yeah," came his reply.  "Like that blouse you bought that wrinkles up as soon as you put it on.  Well I guess you got this faux silk thing down pat!"  (Laughter, laughter, laughter)



Simple inside.  Red is such a strong color it really does not need a lot of help.  The DP strip across the top covers the brad prongs.  In spite of my tissue paper boo boo, I really like this card.
