The Talisman

Hey my sweet friends!

I`m back with another creation today. The digi team has opened a new challenge over at Crafts and Me. This time we would like you to use some kind of lace on your creation.

My card this time is created in a light grey and lavender colour with hints of lilac and pink. The papers are from Tim Holtz Shabby vintage collection and the paper in the left lower corner i don`t remember the producer. The image is called The Talisman and is one of the newest digis in the Crafts and Me Store. It is designed by Sara Burrier, one of my fav artists. You can find the digi right here if you want to get it for yourself, lol.

The gorgeous die-cut behind the image is from Die-namics and is also from the Crafts and Me store, right here. In the corners i have stamped one partial TH swirl and embossed it with clear embossing powder, available here. I used it as a resist to get a pattern in the paper. I used Distress ink Spun Sugar to make the pattern show off. I also used Distress ink Chipped saffire and Victorian velvet to ink up the edges. I also rughed up all edges and painted them with gesso to make a bit more shabby look.

The colours i have used for this image is:

Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan

Cornflower, Blue Pearl, Purple

Cinnamon, Tan, Putty
