I'm sad that we have to part with Eva Dobilas, who has been more than fabulous in the role of a Muse.
Still, there is a great time ahead of us, since I'm sure that we all love the extraordinary artist, that we get to welcome today - Julee Tilman! Julee has a remarkable style and such an eye for detail, that every time I see her creations in the blogland, I can't help but gasp in awe.
The card that I picked for this week, is hands down one of my favourites of all time...
I can't get over the wonderful texture and dimension on it, as well as I'm drooling over the colours and the clever use of papers.
To celebrate the first week of Julee with us, I decided to pull out my Verve stamps... I don't have too many (just the two sets that I won in the Mojo contests), but they're enough for me to fall in love with the quality and beauty of these.
I knew that I would go for a great deal of distressing and choose a shabby chic style.
Supplies: cardstock: PTI (Rustic White), recycled kraft; paper: Sassafras, Kaisercraft; stamps: Verve; ink: Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap, Pumice Stone); Liquid Pearls (Pewter); mulberry flower from Wild Orchid Crafts; paper doily: Martha Stewart; lace trim: Kaisercraft; glitter glue: Reeves, seam binding; buttons; edge distresser: Heidi Swapp; string
TIP: Using Distress Inks with solid images (like my tag) is an easy way to give a stamped image a nice worn out look. Then you don'thave to worry that your neatly stamped element just doesn't sit right with the rest of your vintage design. I love my Distress Inks!
I used the same layout, and paired it with the colours of Curtain Call 71:
