For my Katzelkraft project I've made a birthday card for a colleague at work, and before you say it, yes it's pink ! The lady in question isn't a grungy type of girl so I thought I'd better go more on the girly side !
I stamped the background with white paint dabber and when it was dry I blended Tattered Rose DI over the top and then I rubbed over the top with a damp piece of kitchen roll. I stamped butterflies with Tattered Rose on the background piece too, unfortunately the photo doesn't show it very well. The embossed panel is a Stampin' Up EF called Vintage Wallpaper. The bird cage is by Poppy Stamps and I've stamped over it using the text stamp from the Paris Postal stamp set with white paint dabber and blended over it with DI so the paint resisted the ink. I used the same technique on the butterfly and also on the bottom die cut layer.
The flower is made using the Tattered Flowers die from Crinoline. The brad is a Marah Johnson and the ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
I'm entering this card into the Charisma Cardz challenge which is Vintage.
All of the stamps I've used are available exclusively from The Craft Barn and from Katzelkraft in France.
