A few weeks ago the Fancy Friday team had a No Red/No Pink Valentine Blog Hop. I made this card for that challenge, but ended up using another card for the blog hop instead. Today's card is a little bit of a stretch for me because it is so frilly. I haven't used this much lace, ribbon, and bling on a card in a l-o-n-g time.
The Timeless Elegance designer series paper is absolutely stunning and to tell you the truth, it has been sitting in my stash basically untouched. Normally, I would choose red, pink, or even yellow to color this paper, but with that being off the table for the challenge, I decided to use Mink Macaroon instead. Actually, I only used some Mint Macaroon Dotted Lace Trim. The flowers were colored with Soft Sky reinker and an AquaPainter filled with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol. You see, when you put Soft Sky ink on Very Vanilla (the background color) the slightly yellow tint mixes with the light blue to create Mint Macaroon. Color Theory 101: yellow and blue make green.
To go along with the vintage feel of this card I used the My Valentine greeting from the Bloomin' Love photopolymer stamp set (#140643). I borrowed the sweet little butterfly from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set from the annual catalog. I couldn't help but feel this card was needing even MORE BLING so I hand placed the rhinestones in a swirl pattern and on the butterfly.
The black lace on the top and bottom of the panel is more of the Timeless Elegance DSP. Maybe it is because I just finished binge-watching twelve seasons of NCIS, but I definitely think that Abby Sciuto would approve of this card...what do you think? LOL!
