Vintage Fuschia Card

Wow!  Hello!
Can you believe that it's another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday?
I'm back to once again feature the gorgeous new fuchsia collection.  

This collection just seems to lend itself so well to the romantic vintage style and water coloring!
At least to me it does!  LOL
I've created another card today with both of those themes!

Let's take a look...


I wanted to give this card a real vintage style look, so I've distressed all of the edges and used quite a few different colors of distress ink to get it to this antiqued look.  To add to the romantic feel, Ive added just a touch of glitter with several different shades of Stickles.  The flower images have once again been water colored with my distress markers and a paint brush.  The full instructions on how this has been created will follow at the end of this blog post.  

How about a few close up photographs of the gorgeous flower images I've used here...


I love love love the flower images included in this collection!

Here's a close up of the single flower stamp on the bottom corner...


With just a little bit of masking and by stamping your image slightly off the paper so it appears only partially, you have a creation that looks as though the image was actually on the page and you've just colored it.  The script background is also a Heartfelt Creations stamp which you can find here.  Once again a little bit of masking, and it looks like that script has been printed right onto the page. I choose to stamp the florals straight over the writing as I wanted it to appear that they were in the background and that someone had written over them.  For finishing touches I've added some gold cording and two groupings of black rhinestones.  A quick and easy card to create that can be used for any occasion!

Now, let me encourage you to go check out the Heartfelt Creations blog where all of my teammates have created outstanding and very creative projects! Sometimes I sit back and just gaze at that blog and really just soak in all of the talent there!  I am blessed to work with this company as well as with the amazing designers who create the most wonderful creations week after week!  We would love to see what you create with these projects as well!  Did you know that you can interact with Heartfelt Creations on Facebook...post your creations there, learn a little about the people behind the business...and they always have the most fun and interesting questions for you to answer!

Until next time...

Cut a piece of decorative purple paper from the paper collection to use as a background cover for your 5"x7" card base.  Next choose a coordinating paper that has some fuchsia  images printed on both sides and cut slightly smaller than the background piece. The last piece of paper you will need to locate is the pre printed card panel as shown...trim off green edging to make the panel slightly smaller. Next mask off the area around the centre white space on the premade card panel with washi tape. Using permanent black ink, stamp the script stamp in the centre area of the card panel.  Allow to dry.  Next stamp the Fuchsia Clusters image to the top corner of the card, slightly off to of the side so that only part of the image appears to be printed onto the background.  Repeat with the small fuchsia image from the Fuchsia Bouquet Cling Stamp Set.  Allow to dry and then watercolor both images using distress markers and watercolor brush. Once all coloring has dried, distress all pieces using an ink distress tool and the various colored inks listed above...starting with your lighter colored inks and building in the darker shades where you would like the card to appear more aged.  Using a distressing tool, rough up all the edges on each of the card pieces as much or as little as you like...even tear a few areas so the background papers have a chance to show through.  Apply a dark colored brown ink onto all of the roughed up edges. Build card starting with the purple background paper, then the printed smaller image paper and lastly the premade card panel you have stamped and colored. Fussy cut the small sentiment box from the paper collection and stamp with your choice of sentiment from the collection. Adhere to card as shown. Wind your gold cording around the card front several times and tie in a knot in the front. Adhere your card front to the base.   Apply stickles lightly to each of the stamped flower images and adhere rhinestones.  You now have an antiqued, vintage style any occasion card ready to send out to that friend who loves all things aged and beautiful!
