Friday Feature

Hi friends.  It's Melody with a new Friday Feature.  I recently got some new Tim Holtz dies, so I thought I'd use some on my card. 

I started by die cutting some watercolor paper with the movers & shapers cameo frame and ovals.  I stamped the image (La Blanche) on the oval with jet black archival ink.  Then I added some color wild honey, tea dye and spun sugar distress markers.  I used an ink blending tool to add some tumbled glass and vintage photo distress inks to both the oval and the cameo frame

Then I embossed the frame with wood grain texture folder.  I went over the embossing with vintage photo ink to make the texture stand out. 

The card base is a light aqua, to which I added some vintage photo around the edges.  Then I glued the frame down and attached the oval with dimensional foam tape. 

Next, I die cut the wreath on the regal crest die twice from navy card stock.  I cut them apart at the center, so I could change the curve a bit to fit around the oval.  After gluing them down, I die cut some buttons from a SU sweet buttons embosslit die.  I added color with sponge daubers.  Before attaching the buttons with foam dots, I pierced some holes in them and added thread. 

Most of the products used on my card can be purchased from Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium

Thanks so much for stopping by.
