Floral fun.

Hello all!
It's time for another challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and it's the turn of the PINK team this week- the challenge is being hosted by Kelly and the theme is flowers so why not come and show us what you can do?

           For my card I left the CAS path (it's only temporary!) and used one of my own digis, available from Can You Digi It.  I've been playing around with some images from a vintage Sears catalogue - they're what's known as 'in the public domain' and so I've been digitally cleaning them and repurposing them as digi stamps.  I used this corset one as a tag, coloured the image with Copics and aged it using alcohol inks and Distress ink pads.  The card background is made up from scraps of designer cardstock, distressed and inked at the edges, fabric scraps, buttons, a length of vintage tape measure, a metal charm and some punched out flowers.


I would like to put this in for the challenges at Craft Room Challenge , Through the Craftroom Door , Card Crafter's Circle , Colour Me Creative and The Hobby House.


Thanks for stopping by!

Leaving the CAS path looks good on you too Dawn! Another awesome creation right down to the digi image, but I must say simply can't imagine lugging around those 39C puppies, yikes! Cool work as always girlie :)S

Fun details Dawn. This reminds me of all the antique-ing/junking you do and what a fab idea to take those images and clean them up. You are such a genius! What punch did you use for those flowers - I love them. Great work here! Hugz!
