I absolutely FELL IN LOVE with this sketch, and had such a blast making this card!!!! Lindy's Stamp Gang is our sponsor this month, and you just MUST check out their products, they are absolutely amazing!!!!

For my card, I used the new Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime paperline. These papers are absolutely DELISH, if you have not seen them yet, you should definitely check them out. I used my Magnolia Doohickey die, Tilda's lace, to cut the bottom border and the bottom of my tag. I absolutely LOVE that thing, so much fun. For the tag background, I first painted the tag with cream acrylic paint. Then, I added Rock Candy Crackle paint over it to give it a distressed and vintage look. I then distressed it further with my Vintage Photo distress ink, and finished it off with a cream silk ribbon.
I used a Grungeboard heart and swirl as my accent pieces. They were both painted with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Stain in HoneySuckle Coral, then sprayed with Lindy's Starburst Spray in Ramblin Rose pink. The two prima flowers were white, then I dabbed them with the Starburst Stain in Honeysuckle Coral. I ADORE these products. They leave your project so super sparkly!!!
I used two images for this card, Magnolia Roses and Fairy Dust Tilda. I stamped Fairy Dust Tilda, then masked her and stamped the roses. I am loving this technique, and think it turned out so cute! I colored both images with copics.

  1. Becca Beautiful card. I don't own any Magnolia stamps but I might need to get some. I love how you combined the images. Your coloring is fabulous and the crackle medium on the tag was a great accent. Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Becca, your card is so sweet and beautiful! The crackle background on the tag is one of the best techniques I've ever seen, and one I would never have thought of using on paper! Thanks for the amazing inspiration.


  3. What a beauty!!! I love the way you have masked the Tilda on the roses; so nice. I also love the crackle effect on the tag; amazing. Haven't tried crackeling myself, but I would love to try.
    Have a great week :-D

One of my fav stamps!!Your colors are so soft and gentle and I'm crazy about that Rock Candy Crackle paint...such a perfect treatment to give it an antique feel!
