The Card Concept Challenge 69 - Rich Texture

This week at The Card Concept the theme is 'Rich Texture'. The photo inspiration certainly has masses of that. I love this photo so much!!



This inspiration was a joy to work with. When I saw the chair, with its cutouts and peeled paint, it immediately translated to a shabby window frame for me. (from Making Memories)
The flowers are a direct copy of the texture and colours from the photo, AND, I know, I know.....this card is totally impractical with its very poky-outy bits, but it's pretty..................
The vellum sentiment (from Kaisercraft) was one of three I stamped several months ago for another card. I made three the same and squirrelled two away for later use.
The background is a Designer paper.
The Scallop frame is from MFT.
A swish of paint on the window frame and a sprinkle of sequins finished the card.

The Card Concept Challenge 68 - Lime and Aqua

This week at The Card Concept the theme is 'Lime and Aqua'. The photo inspiration has such fresh and gorgeous colours to play with.  



When I saw the inspiration, these ideas came to mind........a swish of white Golden Fluid Acrylic paint (made with a palette knife) on an aqua background, partial chrome curves (Spellbinders) and this particular die from Papertrey Ink (Bloom Builder #3) for the flowers. 
The card came together with the addition of an embossed sentiment (Hero Arts), the grey stitched frame (MFT Scallop frame, with scallops hidden) and a few rhinestones.
