Happy Valentines Day to everyone, it's Julie here today and I am sharing with you a very Ornate Vintage Style Valentines card using lots of layers, dies and a coordinating pack of papers.
In this photograph you will see how my layers started on my card. I tattered some edges and added Distress Ink for an aged look along with a little Muslin tucked around my layers, also adding a few pearls around my clock.
My main flower, stamens were added into the centre along with a little Gesso to the edges of the petals. My Chrysanthemums were folded in half, offset, glued in place and the petals ruffled. Leaves were rubbed at the edges with a little Distress and a wooden heart added.
My heart I paper pieced back in the centre with a different shade of paper and Pearls added. The word Forever was layered twice for depth.
I colour tinted my image and added it on to the Alpine Flourish frame.
Finishing off my card by adding Pearl swirls and a delicate butterfly.
Hope you have a fabulous weekend and good luck to everyone entering our Weekly Challenge.
