Hey lovely peeps!! I hope you are all keeping well and happy!
I can't believe it's been almost two months since I created a blog post!! I've taken some time out from DT work for now as, apart from working and spending quality time with my beautiful family, I'm in the process of planning a wedding!! Yep!! MY WEDDING!! Eeeek!! Oh, and obviously it's my fiance's wedding too LOL.
A couple of weeks back, I got an amazing bargain on some Distress Re-Inkers! I didn't want to let this bargain slip by and so went in, full throttle, and bought them. Bear in mind I've never used them in my entire life, but was desperate to have a play. I'm so pleased I took the plunge as I'm absolutely loving them! I have so much to learn, but, I'm being extremely patient with myself and having a little go every now and then when I get the chance.
The card I'm showing today is the very first one I created using an image coloured up with my new inks! My previous attempts of colouring ended up in the bin!!! Heehee! I played it safe and made this one for my eldest daughter's 28th birthday. Yep!! She's 28 but she'll always be my 'little princess' .....
Here's my little version of the very beautiful Violet Vintage
I absolutely love Saturated Canary images and this beauty is no exception!
I decided to go with the Shabby Chic effect and am hoping that's how this card comes across ...... and not just plain Shabby LOL!
My papers are from Lili of the Valley called Country Lady, which I distressed. The flowers are a mixture from Wild Orchid Crafts, The Ribbon Girl and Live & Love Crafts. The pearls are from The Hobby House and the little rolled flowers I made myself. The twine borders are from The Range - another little bargain I got :), and the little charm was from my stash, which I coloured up with a Copic pen.
And there you have it ..... lots of practice is still needed to get to where I want to be with these inks, but I'm pretty pleased with the overall outcome at the moment.
I'd like to enter into the following challenges:
Thanks so much for popping by today!
Big hugs xx
