Dorset Button

The theme for the Shabby Tea Shop is Just Neutrals using this photo for inspiration.

When I saw it I thought of Dorset Buttons so I used one as the center for the Marianne Doily. It's very basic with a lot of the spokes showing. I think I need more practice.

 I used neutral cream and brown for the layered papers and tinted them and the paper doily, tucked behind the MD doily, with vintage photo. I added stitching for a shabby look and some white lace. The flower is from a Lea'bilities die and the leaves from MD dies.

Heart of Gold

I made this card with a particular friend in mind who is going through a difficult time. A kind of vintage/shabby chic.

I started by distressing and inking the edges of the 2 Vintage Style papers and layering them onto tan coloured card. the large heart was cut with the large Die'sire heart doily die, painted with antique gold metallic paint with touches of perfect pearls. I used perfect pearls to stamp and coloured the butterfly before cutting  out of cream card from  MD COL1318

I used the same cream card for the Marianne Design leaves and small tag. I used orange seam binding to make a bow and added a metal embellishment. The flowers were made from mulberry paper from Metal  Box Petal Party and tinted with vintage photo and the olive green leaves were cut with LA LA Land Creepy Vine, tinted with shabby shutters distress ink. Finishing touches lace, sequins and silver resin heart.
