Hi there fellow bloggers, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Today I am sharing with you a card made with the most amazing 12x12 paper pad called Bloom Beautiful from Craft Consortium. When I first saw this pad I just ooh'd and ahh'd at every sheet and I am continuing to drool over this paper pad every time I open it. Please check it out HERE.
I started off by die cutting my Birdcage in Chipboard and adding some DecoArt Crackle paint. Whilst still wet I sprinkled a little Distress powder in Milled Lavender and dried it with my heat gun so the paint would bubble a bit more for texture. Finishing off with a little gilding wax and fussy cut birds from the paper pad.
I sprayed my paper with a little water on the reverse side and gathered in to look like a curtain, drying in place with my heatgun. I added 2 rows of stitching, a handmade Rose along with a stamped sentiment and a ribbon to finish.
Thanks for stopping by today.
