I don't know where I got the initial idea but it expanded into a creative storm and swept me up with it!
Believe it or not I started with a piece of bleached muslin fabric which I die cut into 3 scalloped circles of graduated size. The 2 larger fabric circles were spritzed with Cranberry Zing Glimmer Mist, scrunched into a ball and heated up a bit. Then I un-scrunched them and pushed them separately into a small strainer (used only for crafting) to give it a cupped shape and heated till dry. I did the same with the smallest circle using "RazzelDazzel" Berry- Shimmerz Mist. The 3 circles were layered and stitched together using a scalloped button and gold metallic thread.
To make the card I started with a white cs panel and covered it with a blending of Spun Sugar and Victorian Velvet Distress ink. Then I inked up Hero Arts Lace Background stamp (S5341) with Versamark ink and spritzed the stamp with Perfect Pearls in water and stamped over the cardstock panel. This is a variation of the technique used by Anette on THIS fabulous card. It was then trimmed, border punched, stamped with Holly Flourish Border (H5289) in Victorian Velvet and trimmed with thin strips of patterned paper.
All the patterned paper is from the Classic K collection from K and Company. I covered a white card base with a panel of pp. Then I trimmed another pp so it was not as wide as the base. This panel was stamped with the Lace Background as above, except this time I clear embossed it so it would stand out a bit more. Everything was then layered and adhered. I stamped the Cornish Heritage Farms sentiment on a pp scrap and distressed the edges with Victorian Velvet. As a finishing touch I added a bit of Aged Mahogany Distress ink to all the card edges.
Thanks for looking...
