City Crafter Challenge #260

Hello eveyone,

It is time for a brand new challenge at City Crafter Challenge Blog :) and I am a host this week :)
I chose this moodboard as our inspiraion :

  



Anything from it can be used as inspiration; from colors to flowers or suitcases, the choice is yours.

And here is what i created:


As you can probably tell, I was inspired by spiral staircase and that gorgeous dress train hanging from the top as well as vintage picture frames from this moodboard...


I used a piece of metal ribbon to create the spiral staircase railing and then added hand died seam binding ribbon to create the dress train...


I stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardstock covered with texture paste and then framed everything into this small picture frame...


All elements are placed onto a piece of cardboard that was covered with scrunched up tissue, gesso and distress paint. It almost seems like a canvas. :)


I made this card for a really dear blogland friend Georgie. She already got it and liked it alot :)

The Guest Designer this week at City Crafter Challenge Blog is Penny Ward She makes amazing cards!!! Please check out her blog, you'll be in for a great treat!!

I hope you enjoyed this post...

  9. Hehe I really LOVE this!! But I am very biased right now!!! I am beaming as I type this because it's in my home on my mantle piece and seeing this first hand, instead of through photos is just beyond amazing. I can actually feel the texture instead of drooling over your photos. I love the fact that I have a Samra original piece of art :)
