Vintage Look Scripture


It is once again time for a new challenge over at Word Art Wednesday

The scripture is a favourite of mine, and as it was in such a fine print I enlarged it before printing, and made a square card this time.  Not my normal!

 I used a patterned paper from a Rosie's Pad for the background and for layering the scripture onto.  The doily behind the feature panel was too large, but any others I had were too small so I improvised by cutting it into quarters, overlapping and adhering them onto the back of the panel, lining up the corners, which gave in interesting finish, but I was happy with it.  

The white edges were all sponged with a pink ink, and some rose pink sequins add a wee bit of sparkle

The lace I added to two of the sides was also used to tie the bow

I love the feminine/vintage look that this card has - I should do it more often!!

Brushos and Sparkle for WAW


Thank you to all my followers who are so patient with me - I am gradually starting to feel refreshed, but there are still days where I am in bed very early...   This is my fortnightly post for the new 

The background started life for another card, but I gave up on it, then found it again (in my promise box) when I went to make this card.

The background as made using Emerald, Turquoise and Purple Busho powders.  Once the panel was dry, I die cut it using a Mod Hex Background die that appears to have been discontinued.


I layered the panel over some sparkle card in pale turquoise, and then added the scripture which had been cut out using a M/B Stitched rectangle die, and stippled with some Broken China DI. 

The flowers were from a pack that I bought close on 15 years ago when I first started card making, from the local Warehouse store.   The glittered brad was initially a silver one I coated with glossy accents and then dipped it in some fine blue sparkle.

I finished the inside with some washi tape, but the camera batteries 'died' before I could take a photo...
