I am back with another post for the Artful Crafting challenge. The theme this month is Rustic. Here is the moodboard 🙂
I papers from Maja Design… coffee in the arbour are really pretty…I used the 12 by 12 sheet to hand tear these stunningly beautiful images so that I could use them as a focal point of my cards… Then I cut out my card base… it was cream cardstock and used the 6 by 6 sheets from the kit (same collection) as the base layer… Then I used the heart Tim Holtz stencil and broken china distress ink to add some interest to the base layer… I also distressed the images with the same ink and used the picket fence distress ink as well… it creates a pretty subtle effect which is sadly not visible in the photos.
I then arranged all my elements on the card base…. felt that something was missing… so I hand tore the music note sheet from the kit and adhered it to the side of the focal image… and also fussy cut the gorgeous butterflies from the 6 by 6 sheet… BTW I do think that the butterfly sheets are a must have! they are a fantastic way to add interest to your projects… so go grab em 🙂
Finally I added the rhinestones and used the celebrate sentiment from Altenew labels set… another must have stamp set.
Hope you like my go at the rustic theme… I would love to hear what you think… Also check out the fantastic projects by my fellow team members… they are full of inspiration.
