When I saw the Echo Park
"Garden Gate" and Pink Paislee's "Oyster Bar" DPs in the Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary Kit from Pixie Dust Paperie I immediately thought how great they went together and that one day soon I would make a project with the two of them. Well, that day has arrived.
The card base is of Kraft
and topped with a mat of peach canvas textured cardstock. I used my paper distresser on the DP along with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I fussy cut the center flower on "Oyster Bar" leaving the last two petals intact and tucked in some of the pink tulle from the Glitz Beautiful Dreamer Trim pack. I slightly rounded the petals using a paint brush handle and applied some Clear Rock Candy Stickles.
The frame was made with
Spellbinder's Large Classic Scalloped Ovals and Large Classic Ovals. The lace is from the Glitz trim pack, the pearl trim is from my stash, and the bow is made from Kirsty's Signature Crinkled Ribbon. The flowers are by Prima and the leaf trinket pin is from Maya Road. The other pin I made with beads from my stash.
The embroidered butterfly
is from the surplus store we visited in Cumberland, Maryland last year. It's decorated with TPC Studio So Delish Mini Jewels and a couple pieces from my pearl trim.
When the Penmaker saw
my card, he said... "hummm, not your usual!" I'm not sure if that's a good or bad response. I know I like to try new techniques, even if they don't look like my usual! What do you think?
By the way,
he did come back with... "I like it!"
Thanks for the visit... they mean so much!
