Be Good

I created this card for the challenge over at Frilly and Funkie.  This week, we are being asked to create a project that incorporates Kraft paper and twine.  I decided to use a Tim Holtz Die Cut of a distressed doily and used Kraft card stock for the doily.  The doily was layered over a monoprint made with a GelliArts Gel Printer.  The focal image by Artistic Outpost was stamped with Vintage Photo Distress Ink onto white card stock and distressed heavily with more DI.  The image was then matted with chocolate card stock and added to the card front.  Embellishments include a distressed, embossed photo corner, lace, button, burlap twine, a snippet of muslin and burlap and an Idea-ology binder clip.

Hi Yvonne, this is a fabulous vintage design, with gorgous colours! The background looks amazing...I haven't heard of GelliArts Gel Printer before, but it looks fantastic.

One of my favorite quotes, Yvonne! Your card is absolutely delightful. I love all the wonderful bits of fabric and other textures, the image is terrific and I LOVE the red embossed photo corner - wow, that pop of color is absolutely the perfect finisher! So happy to have you joining in the fun with us again this week at Frilly and Funkie!

Hugs,
Linda
