But I had An Idea.
When I first noticed that image in Isabella's store, I remembered a poem I had heard once. So I rooted the web, found the poem and then of course had to get an image and make a card! lol
I wanted the sleeping kitten on the cushion of lace and leaves so I ruffled all the edges of the card with lace trim and die cut some leaves with Sizzix dies.
I found a die-cut paper from Lily Bee and painted it all over with Cosmic Shimmer Angel Gold iridescent paint, in real life if has lovely subtle glimmer and texture which camera did not catch!
Then I (painstakingly) sew beads all around the paper.
The frame for the image was made with Nesties and covered with Crackle Accents. The image was coloured with Copics and then I decided I wanted a slightly ages look so tried to smudge the writing ever so slightly. Might have gone overboard there. Hmmm
The flowers were made from lace trim and embellished with Papermania pearls.
Then I added vintage glass glitter to all the edges and leaves and finally put the card together.
It was fun-to-do card. Don't know if I'll ever actually find an occasion to use it but sometimes you need to make things just for the sake of making them.
Don't forget there's still a bit time to submit your project to Isabella's Challenge, this week Anything Goes, as long as you use Isabella's image!
