Botanical continued

I teased you last night, with the probability of another post... well, it didn't work out :)
None the less, as soon as I had a chance to sit down to my desk today, I took the plunge and here I am, with two more shabby/distressed/botanical creations.
They were both created with the Fanatical About Botanical Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Hell yeah... is that a fun challenge or what?!

The card below was designed with the birdies from Song In My Heart - the stamp set that I designed for Paper & Such Store.

Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft; paper: DCWV (Mariposa); stamps: Paper & Such (Song In My Heart); ink: Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap), PTI (Fresh Snow); Heidi Swapp edge distresser; Cuttlebug embossing folder (Fleur De Lis); doily; ribbon: AnnaBelle Stamps; sentiment sticker: Glitz Design; brads; border punch: EK Success; flower: Prima; mini clothespin; vintage buttons

The sketch inspiration comes from the Card Patterns challenge #124. I turned it on the side, used the embossed pattern to imitate the rhomboidal shapes, and I cut out a piece of doily, for the bottom panel. All in all, it's a very loose inspiration... :)



The other card, sports my favourite birdie, from Red Lead Paperworks... the CASE Study emblem :)

Photobucket

Supplies: cardstock: white, DCWV (yellow, khaki), PTI (Hibiscus Burst); paper: Glitz Design (Laced With Grace), October Afternoon; stamps: Red Lead Paperworks; ink: Distress Ink (Frayed Burlap), Versafine (Onyx Black); Heidi Swapp edge distresser; Cuttlebug embossing folder (Textile); Glitz Design Whatnot; twill ribbon; sentiment sticker: dollar store; flower: Wild Orchid Crafts; brads; rhinestone: Glitz Design

This time I used the sketch & theme (birthday) from Wild Orchid Challenge #28, and the colours from CR84FN34:



I hope you like these :) Until next time,
