Vintage Fairy

Good afternoon. Today I would like to share my card I have made for the following challenges:

LOTV - Fab sketch
Crafty Creations - Use your favourite Stamp

I started by running a piece of linen effect textured cardstock through my Bigshot with the Flourish Impressabilities from Spellbinders. I left the Impressability on the cardstock and spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Golden Mint Mister and when it was dry I inked all over with Dusty Concrde distress ink - this created my bottom piece of DP. The top piece was created by inking direct to paper with Dusty Concorde and Peeled Paint onto some more linen effect textured cardstock and spritzing with Pearl Glimmer Mist then I stamped over with Penny Black French Script with Dusty Concorde distress ink.
I dsitressed the edges with my scissors - I have a Tim Holtz distressing tool but I don't get on with it lol!!!
Image is Fairies Bouquet from LOTV and is 'one' of my favoutite stamps (at the moment lol!!!!) - stamped with Archival Black and coloured with distress inks.
Flowers punched from scraps of top DP
A few adhesive pearls from Hobby House
Sentiment - Craftworks Cards - inked with Dusty Concorde & Peeled Paint.

Thought I would also share a couple of photos of how my lounge looked this morning......

All empty and ready for a make over!

Will hopefully be able to post photos of completed flooring at the end of the week....... watch this space lol!!!

Just settling down (upstairs) to watch QVC.
Have a wonderful afternoon.
Thanks for popping over.

Hi Debs - sounds all go at your end .. .. and now you are settling down to watch QVC!!! Where am I going wrong?!?!?!?

That looks a lovely open space for "making over". Will it become your craft room when it is finished? LOL!!

Great card by the way Debs. The background looks really textured.

Your usual beautiful work Debs!
You have a real talent for colour, whethere it's colouring in or putting colour pallettes together - it's always stunning.
