It's time for some Heartfelt Creations inspiration! Today I have a vintage floral tag to show you!
|(Click on photo for a closer view.)|
I really love how this came out! I love the vintage look of the flowers and leaves with the Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel on the cream card stock. Coloring with the chalk inks makes this so soft and pretty and much quicker than coloring with pencils. I only used 2 colors on this also, Aegean Blue and Spanish Olive VersaMagic Inks and applied the color with make-up applicators. Here's a little close-up for you.
Here's a different angle for you. I love the beautiful lace on the bottom!
Be sure to visit the HC Blog to see the beautiful creations by the designers this week! We have a new member on our Design Team, Loretta Lock, who is returning to the DT. Welcome Loretta!
You can also see another sneak peek of the new Sweet Lullaby Collection being released next week!
I'm submitting this to the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday Challenge #131 - Anything Goes.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope I leave you inspired!
