Hello, friends! I hope your week is going great and that you've taken some time to craft! ;) I'm here today with a card for the C.R.A.F.T challenge--INSPIRED BY A MOVIE. Great Impressions is sponsoring this time, so hop over for a chance to win some free stamps! Come and take a peek at my card...
I was inspired by the movie Emma, based on the book by Jane Austen. Technically, I believe my card could be inspired by any Jane Austen novel set as a movie, but I chose Emma. ;) I started by stamping and head embossing the main image, H147 Romantic Collage, onto some distressed looking patterned paper. I then used a water color pen to watercolor the image using pink, green, blue, and brown inks. This was fussy cut before it was added to the card.
Next, I created a card base that included patterned paper, a doily, some pearls and rhinestones, and the sentiment (E859 Forever Yours) head embossed directly onto the base. A couple of pearls were added behind the image. A piece of lace was added to the heart shaped pin to fill in more of the blank space and add texture.
After it was all put together, I questioned my decision to mat the patterned paper with brown paper. I'm thinking now black would have been better, but I don't know. All in all, I think this card came together rather well! What do you think? I'd love to hear your opinion in the comments below!
That's all for me today! I hope you hop over and play along with this week's C.R.A.F.T. challenge for a chance to win some goodies from Great Impressions! Thank you SO much for stopping by today--I very much appreciate your visits and kind words. Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
