Time for a new challenge at A Vintage Journey and we have a favourite theme - it is Things with Wings.
I was inspired my my AVJ design team colleagues who recently did their Destination Inspiration posts using Tim's Shabby Chic technique from one of his books. However I think I need to master this one as it didn't go too well!
I embossed some purple cardstock with the background stamp from the Papillon set. I then took various distress paints (really must expand my range of colours) but just ended up changing the colour of the card - LOL! I still liked it though so I carried on.
Whoops I forgot photographs for my butterfly - using the wonderful Butterfly Duo die and embossing folder. I cut him out and coloured the card with dusty concord and chipped sapphire inks before embossing. I then took some oil pastels in black and brown (thanks to Brenda Brown for this idea!) and highlighted the raised areas and around the edges.
I stamped my greeting from Simple Sayings, took some burlap and put my card together.
There is sure to be lots of creativity over at A Vintage Journey today - so do head over.
