Vintage Christening Card

Hi Folks, it's time for another challenge over at the Crafting with Dragonflies challenge blog. This time the theme is vintage with lace. I have used a beautiful image from one of our sponsors this week 'A Day for Daisies', they have some lovely images for all occasions, but I do love their fairies.

I cut my image out using a decorative Nestie shape, and inked around the edges, with the die still in place, so that the edging looks like lace. I've coloured the image with my trusty Polychromos pencils, using the cream pencil as a blender, to give everything a very vintage tone. I love the look that this gives. I created a computer generated sentiment, and gave the shape the same treatment as the main image. I used Scattered Straw Distress Ink to colour the edges. I added some toning buttons and some pretty turquoise lace to finish my card.

The rest of the DT have made some beautiful cards for your inspiration, so please hop over to the blog to take a look.

Our sponsors this week are A Day for Daisies who are offering the Winner a $12 Gift Certificate to spend in the shop:


 Eureka are offering the Winner 5 digis of their choice:

I love this image too Judith, and you've colored it so beautifully. Thank-you so much for the tip on using a cream color as a blender, what a great idea! I will try that next time.

Beautiful card, the image is lovely and it has been made the most of in such a delicate way.

Love the way the lacey edges of the image & sentiment panel give the ethereal sense of wings which there's a hint of in the image detail. The dotty background echoes the little baby's robe beautifully too & I particularly like the way your buttons echo the dots too.
