Touch of Pink-- Yeey I Won Cheery Lynn Challenge


Ladies thank you so much for all your kind comments on my blog, I truly appreciate it ( thank you Shona for your motivation and being my true blue follower. I wish you lived closed...  :)

This card was an interesting card to make. It sort of shabby chic meets grunge.

Here is how the card made:

There are a lot of different techniques in this card. I started from using JR background stamp...(you can't actually see it anymore because of all the texture over it).
I've used embossing paste on the sides first to add texture. I have created flowers using build a flower Cherry Lynn dies and Cherry Lynn flourishes. Used the oval die by Cherry Lynn for additional texture. I inked the flowers and flourishes. I did a faux stitching.

When I decided to pull the card together, I was so happy that I didn't add the banner as of yet. Because the card just looked too pink to me, this is when I started really to add ..... well everything I could think of.

I have used wood grain stamp to add texture with embossing paste. Once it dried I added ranger espresso acrylic paint on the wooden grain and around the die cut. Then it looked too dark to me so I started lifting it off with water and added write acrylic paint.

I added Viva pearls to add movement to card. I used JR gratitude stamp set for a sentiment. I thought the font was perfect. I have created banner and added faux stitching.

At that point I decided to stop adding things to card.

What do you think???
