Sweetly Singing

 
Hi All, this is another piece I made for the Gecko Galz DT using a combination of  Gecko Galz Floral Symphony paper and Vintage by Me  for the bird image. 
For this 5 x 7 card I printed the Floral Symphony paper and Vintage by me image (twice) on to Staples matte photo paper.  I fussy cut the daisy's and mounted them with a foam dot, added some lace.  I distressed the image by tearing all 4 edges and a center split, I then rolled the center split, added a piece of the image back in, I then used Ranger distress ink on all the torn edges.  I added glue and Flower Soft flowers to the tear in the image and some straw and baby's breath above the daisy's.  I printed the envelope liner in the matching Floral Symphony paper on regular copy paper and glued it inside. 
I am entering this into the challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous using the new items of the papers along with the lace, Flowersoft and baby's breath I have been hoarding for ages.  


                                                     That's it, thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  5. Very creative use of the image, especially the centre split.
    Diane, you and I have used the same Floral Symphony paper, I scaled mine large enough to enable me to use it on two cards (not on my Blog as yet - I still have my crosspromotion project to share)
    You captured Springtime on this beautiful card.
    Wishes

  13. Wow - fabulous and what great techniques. I studied the card for a long time , before I read your post, to try and work out how you did that cone of blossoms. That works soooo well. The baby's breath is a beautiful addition (I don't have any of that .....yet!) and the touch of lace is perfect.
