Hi everyone, I hope you are managing to get some creative time to yourself.
Today I have made a little Mediterranean inspired card for my Design Team card at Cheery Lynn Designs. My husband and I love to go to the island of Majorca where you see many white washed houses with shuttered windows.
My window was cut out of a cereal packet which I then painted to give a shabby feel. I mounted the window onto a little grey card, placing a little spider ribbon behind to give the illusion of a net curtain. I then added my Anastasia border behind to look like curtains. Don't you just want to peek in the window ! I love having the little window box as it is a lovely finishing touch to add the Wow factor.
My Penny Farthing I cut out twice in black and once in silver card stock, paper piecing it back together over the first complete die cut. My little birds were highlighted with some distress inks.
My brick wall was made using Cheery Lynn's embossing plates, please check them out here on the shop blog. I rubbed some distress ink over the embossing plate, placed a white piece of paper onto it and ran through my die cutting machine. So easy to do with fabulous results.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at my card today and I have managed to inspire you.
