Vintage Friday Kitchen Sink...
Ive titled today's post Kitchen Sink because I felt, as I was making this, as if I was throwing everything at this card however I love the way it has come out! Todays "vintage" collection is the Spanish collection namely the Background and Border, corner and tag.
I stared by cutting the border strip twice in bright white and backed it with brunswick green. I then cut the background into white and backed this with more of the green. I added the borders down each side and added the whole piece to a larger set of layers in white and green.
Next I cut another border in white backed with a larger piece of green and set some of the other dies in the Spanish Collection to back the spanish tag cut in green i the centre. I wrapped this across the front of the card adding rhinestones in a strip and in the edges.
The card still appeared to be a little plain ( I'm not sure whether you will agree lol) so I added the trailing ivy die cut in green and camellia complete petals shaped with a rhinestone in the centre cut in white along the foliage.
A very busy card but I do like the simplicity of the colour and the flowers!
