Distressed Kraft Card

Here's a pretty card I made last night. I'm entering this into two blog challenges - the theme this week at Passion for Promarkers is "distressing" and the theme at One Sweet Challenge is "kraft":


I started with this gorgeous stamp from Sweet Pea Stamps - it's called Keep My Secret Well and it's by Anna Marine. I've had this one for a while but not used it before so it's been lovely to finally have a play with it. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then distressed and curled the edges. I then cut pieces of plain and patterned pink paper to size, used an Edgabilities die on the patterned paper, inked all the edges and attached them to a kraft card blank. I added a piece of pink lacy ribbon and then cut a piece of Tim Holtz patterned kraft paper to slightly larger than the coloured image, distressed and curled the edges, and attached this and the image to the card.

To finish I cut Tattered Florals from pink patterned paper and patterned kraft paper, curled the petals and fixed them together with a jewelled brad. I attached the flower using a hot glue gun and then cut butterflies from the patterned kraft paper, folded the edges up and attached using Glossy Accents.

I rather like how this has turned out. It's got a lovely shabby, vintagey feel to it with muted colours. And, of course, the image is just gorgeous! :)
