Well it is that time of the week again. . .you guessed it, it is Creative Space Thursday. I have been busy all week making cards etc now that my business course has finally finished. I have got so many ideas running around in my head as to what to have to offer for sale. I really think I may just focus on vintage MOST of the time because I absolutely adore the whole concept and look of vintage and always have. Today I just wanted to make a card that I would love to receive. I purchased this antique March Music book from an antique store in Uralla a couple of weeks ago for the purpose of cutting it up for my artwork. I spotted this flower in my blog perving and quickly wrote down the instructions for it but for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it but if I do I will edit this post to give credit where it is due.
I used my oval punch to cut out the 'petals' of the flower from the antique music paper
Next I used a sponge dauber and More Mustard stamp pad to give that aged look around the edges of each petal.
Then on top of the More Mustard I used Really Rust to complete the vintage look. (I am still waiting patiently for my Tim Holtz Distress Inks to arrive, which will hopefully be tomorrow)
Then for the inner flower I ran some Coordinations cardstock through the Cuttlebug using the Swirls embossing folder
And I put the flower together and then created my card. I so love it. The scripted paper is from Making Memories and suited this card to a tee I thought. I finally got to use my SU Life Definations stamp set which is fantastic. And the finishing touch in the middle of the flower is a decorative button which cost $1 each so I may just have to get some more as I have used the two I had in my stash. That was my creative space for this week and if YOU would like to play along or just visit other beautiful spaces pop on over to Kootoyoos blog to see them or play yourself. . . go on you know you want to!!
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
