Pretty in Pink with Eclectic Paperie


Hi everyone! I just wanted to show you a little card that I made and boy, have I used a lot of wonderful goodies for this one :D When I first sat down to start this card I had the idea in mind to use bright colours because I adore bright, bold colours...but this card had a mind of it's own and voila...a shabby and distressed card instead ;)


I started with The Crafter's Workshop 6x6 Mini Mix and Match Hearts Template and then attacked it with some pink ink as well as some Ranger Distress Antique Linen and Vintage Photo inks onto My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Rosy paper to shabby it up a bit :) This turned out to be the starting point for my card :)

What goes better with a shabby style then, pearls, buttons, twine and seam binding? Maya Rd Canvas Butterflies and Pearl Trinket Pins of course! I did dress up my canvas butterfly with my Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabber in Shell Pink. It's such a pretty shade and I couldn't resist!

I then finished off my card with a coordinating sentiment from the TSG Side by Side set and stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, half pearl embellishments and loads of distressed edges. This isn't normally the style of card that I create but once in a while like to step out of my box and try something new :D I hope that you like it and thanks for coming by today!
