Vintage Blue - Inspiration Photo for Deep Ocean Challenge

Ooops I'm running a bit late with this as my scheduled post decided to misbehave!  Anyway, it's time for a change of theme over at Deep Ocean Challenge, and this time we have a bit of Photo Inspiration to share with you, please scroll to the bottom of this post to check out the inspiration for yourself.

I haven't made any non image cards for a bit and I thought this was the perfect opportunity, I used some lovely papers in vintage blues from Pion Design and added some some pretty embellishments in blue and ivory.

I inked all my layers in Walnut Stain, distressed them and added plenty of gesso, applied with an almost dry brush.
I slipped a square of light blue tulle between 2 of my layers. I coloured my little cameo frame blue and then brushed it liberally with a couple of coats of crackle paint, allowing the blue to show through.

To finish I added embellishments from The Ribbon Girl, links below.

Scrapiniec Chipboard Rounded Corners

This is the inspiration I followed

I do hope you can join in, and don't forget to check out my lovely teamies' work over on the blog.

Until next time!

  2. Very beautiful and elegant card.

  3. That colour palette is just gorgeous and your shabby chic style is fabulous. I would be so freaked out by the idea of making a card with no image but your clustering of floral embellishments and chipboard pieces are so brilliant all by themselves :-)
    Big hugs, Kat xx
