Hi Crafty Peoples!
A few of my team mates went to CHA and were kind enough to share their photos of the big event. So many new exciting products will be hitting the stores and I know it will be hard to keep cash in my pocket when they do.
So until those money sucking things arrive, I was inspired by the vintage and Paris themed paper items I saw and decided to use a freebie that Lindsay (from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff) had on her blog recently.
The base of my card is acetate (not sure if it show up too well in the photo, pretty cool in real life tho') and the Eiffel Tower was stamped using Stazon.
Isn't this vintage dress image a great freebie? I couldn't wait to use it...so feminine and pretty! I colored the dress with Copics, and created the dots with my colorless blender. I decided it needed some bling, so I spritzed the entire image with some spray called Shimmerz. There are a ton of products like this on the market, and I know people even make their own...I was just too lazy to research how to do it.
Here is a close up of the effect. I added those circular stickers (from Basic Grey) because the colors matched the dress and flourish, but rhinestones may have been more appropriate. Oh well, C'est la vie! (I have no clue if I spelled that correctly and my spell check doesn't speak French either..lol)
If you like this freebie, make sure you stop by Lindsay's blog, because she will be offering another free item today. If you like the style of this image, why not check out her set of Steampunk Style digis?
Thanks for visiting and see what fun, crafty things the rest of the design team has created this week!
