Freaky Flutter

Thursday, January 26, 2012

Hi everyone! Today's card that I want to share with you all is inspired by the lovely photo over at The Shabby Tea Room. The challenge this week is 'Sparkly and Bright' and you have to use white/cream, silver, and pink! I recently won the Freaky Flutter digi over at The Greeting Farm and thought this would be a good challenge to use her. I don't really see many cards with Freaky Flutter but I think she is so gorgeous and versatile! What do you think?

The DPs that I have used are from the new Kissing Booth collection from Basic Grey. I really like this collection - it is so romantic! I inked all of the DPs, kraft stock, and the doily with my Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Victorian Velvet so that they all blended nicely.

For embellishments I have used some bakers twine from my stash, a button embellishment from Prima and a mixture of Prima flowers. The pink tipped flowers are just white ones that I got from my local craft store and used the Victorian Velvet Distress ink on the ends of the petals. I find that customising flowers to suit your project is a great way for everything to tie in. You can see a mini tutorial I did of this here.

I stamped Freaky Flutter using Memento ink in Tuexedo Black, and coloured her using my copic markers. I embellished her dress (cake? lol) using Martha Stewart Sterling Silver Glitter Powder.
