A DAY FOR DAISIES :: DT SHOWCASE :: VINTAGE


My card features the cute image called "Flowers for Sale
that I merged with a digital image of a vintage seed packet, as well as digital lace.  

Alcohol markers were used for the colouring of the image:

 Instead of using dimensional flowers I printed the image a second time, 
cut out just the flowers, 
and coloured them similarly to the flowers in the image:

 I also used the following on my card:

kraft card base
burgundy cardstock mat
sewn on sequins and beads
sewn on pearls
pearl stamens
flat back pearl
copper coloured cord bow
