For my card I used the Hungarian Vizsla from Tim Holtz Crazy Dog stamp set. Maybe for you this image is another type of pointer but I'm Hungarian so for me this is obviously a Vizsla, a cute and crazy Vizsla :-)
Sometimes it's good to dig out my old designs and mix them or just refresh them. For this card I used the background of an old tag.
Sorry, there's no step by step tutorial this time but I can help you with two photos and with some explanations.
I coloured my Canson watercolour paper (300gms/140lb) with Mowed Lawn, Cracked Pistachio, Twisted Citron and then stencilled with Pine Needles through Tim's Flourish stencil. Then I stamped Tim's Reflection stamp with white ink onto the card.
With this picture I show you how I arranged the greens and branches behind the flowers.
With my card I would like to join: - the Fabric and Fibres challenge of the Stamps and Stencils blog because of my wool felt flowers - April showers bring May flowers challenge of the Work it Wednesday challenge of the Simon Says Stamp I hope you like it! Happy crafting!
On the Monday Challenge of the Simon Says Stamp blog right now there's a challenge called: It's a frame up! - and as you see I couldn't resist it.
So I made this:
For the humorous text I have to say thanks to my lovely daughter. It was her who helped me out when yesterday I told her what I was doing and I was struggling to find a great text. I wanted a king's name or something... but in the end it was Eszter who told me: Henry the hairy :-) It was just brilliant!
What is so special in Eszter that she speaks not just Hungarian and French but the English as well! And she is just 11!
As for the background...
I used Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bow and Tumbled Glass to make the background and I stamped the damask motifs with Faded Jeans. I wanted to make and old wall paper.
With Vintage Photo I inked not just the edges but here and there too.
I cut out the frame from chipboard, painted brown and left it to dry. After I randomly dabbed with a sponge and with Vintage Photo and sprinkled with Ranger Gold Tinsel embossing powder. I wanted to achieve a worn and distressed gold frame.
The text was stamped with Lawn Fawn letters and Ranger Archival Potting Soil stamp. The edges were distressed with a scissors and inked with Vintage Photo. I used double sided foam tape to attach to the card.
