A Vintage Pink Family

לרשומה בעברית, נא לגלול למטה
A relative of mine gave birth to a baby girl a few weeks ago, so I've made this card for her.
I recycled a package of something I got, I even don't remember what, and that is the wavy craft cs. Also I used Pink music notes cs (also for the butterfly), pink lace ribbon, green leaves ribbon, silk riboon tiny flowers, flowers with tulle, 3 small buttons, 3 black pearls for the butterfly's body, 3 pink pearls, and I used gold stickles on the big pink flowers and on the butterfly. The image is a freebie from Pollycraft (you should really go and grab them, Paula has lovely digis, and she gives one freebie every friday).
I teared almost every edge on this one and inked it to get the old can't see it, but the edges under the image and the lace ribbon, are also torn. also i drew some faux stitching around the image with glitter brown gel pen.
I just love this color combo of pink, green/olive & brown/craft.
I didn't do much vintage cards, but I think I'm starting to fall in love with this style...
I enter this card to the following challenges:
Gloria's signature style - day 359 on 365 cards. Gloria made an adorable vintage card for a man, you can see it here. the challenge was to create a vintage style card and scraflift some feature from Gloria's card. as you can see, my card is certainly not a card for man... LOL, but it sure is a vintage card and I "lifted" the 3 pearls on the right upper corner (okay, Pam asked to scraflift a standout feature, so I cheated, but just a little, and it has been such a long time since I cheated on 365 cards, so you probably asked yourself if I'm okay... LOL)
another one for color combo (pink, olive, brown) - #81 color throwdown
another for 3 colors I love (pink, green, brown) - #43 gingersnap
vintage with flowers - simon says
pink - #69 one stop craft (Itzuvit is the hostess of this challenge, and she made a fab card!); #45 twisted thursday; #1 i love digi
flowers - another one for cute daisy may` fttc55
distres + pearls + glitter - #92 a spoon full of sugar
music to my ears - #7 creative craft (the background dp and the butterfly - music note dp).
in the frame - #80 my time to craft
another for handwriting - frosted designs
ribbon & sparkle - #39 C.R.A.F.T.
recipe: dp+buttons+ribbon (mine is the lace ribbon underneath the image) - stamp something
texture: at least 3 different textures - #26 crazy 4 challenges (mine are: the wavy cs, the lace, the buttons, the tulle, the silk flowers, the pearls)
touchy feely - #31 incy wincy designs (they're having a blog hop for the new release)
three's a company - #7 raise the bar (mine are: 3 pink pearls. 3 black pearls, 3 buttons)
cupcake inspirations - #48 hope stamps eternal
fancy edge & ribbon - # 21 crafty catz (mine is the scalloped edges of the image and the lace ribbon)
lucky me - #8 pile it on ( I'm so lucky to have some time to craft! lately I just couldn't find the time, nor the energy to craft...)
bling it on - #38 the treehouse
cute - #22 quirky crafts (this image is so cute...)
Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my card. your comments are mostly apperciated and welcomed.
Have a lovely warm day.
את הכרטיס הזה הכנתי לקרובת משפחה שלי שילדה לפני כמה שבועות בת.
לא הכנתי הרבה כרטיסי וינטאג', למרות שתמיד התפעלתי מכרטיסים שכאלו. לאחרונה יצא לי להכין שניים-שלושה בסגנון זה ופשוט התאהבתי. אז ניצלתי את ההזדמנות להכין כרטיס בסגנון הזה.
השתמשתי בקרטון גלי שהיה בעבר אריזה של משהו שאפילו אינני זוכרת מה :). בנוסף השתמשתי בנייר ורוד מדוגם של תווי נגינה, ממנו גם הכנתי את הפרפר שבפינה הימנית העליונה. שני דפים אלו עברו 'התעללות' בקצוותיהם (גם אלה שמתחת לדמות ולסרט התחרה, רק שלא רואים זאת), עם מגבון לח והרבה מעיכה וגלגול עם האצבעות. אח"כ יישנתי אותם עם דיו חום. סרט התחרה הוא בגוון ורוד עתיק, כך שהוא השתלב יפה עם כל המכלול.
להחתמה הזאת (חינמית באתר של pollycraft) יצרתי מסגרת מסולסלת והוספתי תיפורים בעט ג'ל בצבע חום נוצץ. את הכל הדבקתי על נייר חום משרדי וגם הוא עבר טיפול של קריעת הקצוות ודיו (הפעם אדום).
על הקרטון הגלי הדבקתי סרט של עלים בצבע זית והוספתי בקצוות פרחים ורודים על מצע של טול, ועל גבי העלים הדבקתי פרחים קטנים עשויים מסרטי משי, וכפתורים. לגוף הפרפר הדבקתי 3 פנינים שחורות קטנטנות והוספתי גם 3 פנינים ורודות.
הוספתי קצת סטיקלס זהוב על הפרחים הורודים הגדולים ובקצוות של הפרפר. הכיתוב הוא אותיות ראב-און.
שילוב הצבעים הזה - ורוד, ירוק/זית, חום/קראפט - מאד מאד מוצא חן בעיני ואני חושבת שאני מתחילה להיות מכורה לסגנון הוינטאג'... במזג האוויר הסוער מאד ששורר פה בימים האחרונים, זה היה כיף מאד להכין את הכרטיס הזה, במיוחד אחרי תקופה די ממושכת שלא יצא לי להתפנות לכך.
תודה שנכנסתם להסתכל. אני נהנית מאד לקרוא את התגובות שלכם.
שיהיה לכם יום חמים ונעים.
