Romance.......

Morning fellow crafty bloggers hope you are all well, another blue sky today after the rain yesterday, at least the gardens are having the odd drop of water, my roses have supassed themselves with glorious big blooms. Todays card ties in with roses the flower of Romance......I'm feeling sentimental and mushy so I've done a vintage wedding card inspired by the challenge at Crafty Individuals this month, there are some lovely inspirational projects to inspire you there. I've distressed, misted, crackled and washed this card.......when I say washed I mean put a wash of Fresco acrylic paint over the background paper to dull it down and then stamped on the top of it with Pumice using my two most used stamps from Crafty Individuals......music sheet and swirl stamps. The frame I first painted in gold dabber then added the new crackle glaze with a top coat of a couple of colours of Fresco paints and voila (little bit of French) you get a lovely crackled finish......
The paper was also misted as was the heart doiley.......with Tea Rose, Irridescent gold, English Ivy and Twilight. The sentiment stamp Cherish is from Whiff of Joy, I think the flowers were from Hobby House and are perfect for vintage cards, I'm hopeless at putting on flowers so I have to wait overnight to finish the card as I can never decide where to put them............big decsions.....lol. The Victorian bird with rose was from Holland when I went last year, they do quite alot of Victorian style images with the glitter on very reminisant of old fashioned Victorian cards.
