Inspired work

 
  
Hi All, this 5 x 7 card is inspired by some really talented artists I follow, I have been looking at their beautiful work with the torn pages and pearls and jewels and lace tumbling out and I really do adore the style, so today this is my take on it.  The image is from Evert Maaskamp is called Rozen, and since there is some sort of "note" written below the image I am stretching it a bit to enter it into
 *City Crafters "Take Note" challenge.    
 I printed this on Staples matte photo paper, tore the edges.  I did not like the color of the patterned background card stock, (it was on clearance too many years ago to remember who's it is) it was a wrong shade of beige for this piece so I used Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress stain to lighten it up and some Tim Holtz Mahogany distress stain for the edges.  The pearls are hoarded 2mm and 3mm from Pizzazz Aplenty. 
Be sure to pop over to City Crafters and have a look at all the beautiful inspiration there.
I am also entering this into the challenge at
* Craft Hoarders Anonymous showing Sparkle, Glitz or Glam and do stop by and see all that beautiful bling too!
*Along with the Deep Ocean Challenge For a Friend.
That's it for today, thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  7. Hi Diane. What an elegant and stunning card you've created! Those vintage roses in the center are so lovely. I love the torn and browned edges. Those really make for a much more vintage looking card. Those sweet little pearls add so much depth and richness to your card, too. I love it! Thanks for the nice comment you left on my blog about my elephant pull toy, too. You're so sweet! <3 Candy
