Flourishes Beautiful World Tour - Vintage

Good morning everyone! Thank you for joining me on the first Monday of 2014!!
It's time for another Flourishes Beautiful World Tour!  So, grab yourself a cuppa and join in with us as we travel the world.
If you're on track you should have arrived here in the UK from Kathy's blog in Australia.  But if you should get lost along your way, you can hop back to the beginning - Flourishes blog in Florida.
By joining in with us, and leaving a comment on each designers blog by 31st January, you will be in with the chance of winning a FREE FLOURISHES STAMP SET!!!
This month Anne-Elise is our hostess, and she as asked us to create something with a vintage feel.
Here is my take on the challenge.....a card with a soft vintage feel.....
As you can see I used two doilies as my focal point.  I sponged the edges with Tattered Rose distress ink and stamped the top doily with one of the sentiments from  'Garden Gate' set of stamps.
I cut some flowers and buds on my Cameo and coloured those with Tattered Rose distress ink. I then added some pearl stamen to the centres. 
The rose leaves were stamped from part of the 'Lenten Rose' stamp set.  I cut them out and water coloured them. I also stamped around my base card with the 'Lenten Rose' stamp. To complete, I added an organza bow.
Here you can see the sentiment more clearly.....
Thank you for stopping by.  Your next stop along the way is at Bridgets blog in Northern Ireland....

I'm a little late in finding this wonderful card on Pinterest. I would be SO grateful to learn what doilies you used in making the January 6, 2014 "Vintage" card. This is absolutely fabulous!!

Laura said...

Hi, just saw this on Pinterest and I was wondering where you purchased all those little pearl stamens? Are they single stamens, or do you buy them in nice big bunches.

Many thanks, Laura

CreativSpirit said...
