A sneak peek inside.
Obviously white is the main colour, (I'm pretty quick!) followed by pink and with the green of the leaves to give the third colour. Hopefully I have got them in the right proportion.
Anyway this is the outcome, for better or worse. The cardstock is Bazill Basics Diamond and so has a nice sheen to it. I distressed the edges with an Xcut distressing tool and then inked them with Color Box Chiffon White, which is in fact the palest of pale pinks. I used the sewing machine on a couple of the pieces of card. The trellis die cut at the side is Memory Box Tessatina cut down to fit the space. I used two Spellbinders Labels 18 at right angles and typed my quote and downloaded a rose image from my Greeting Card Factory Deluxe programme. The heart die is from Nellie Snellen hearts and swan dies. There are some really pretty hearts in this set but the fancier ones were too big for the space. The flowers are WOC, the leaves are from a Woodware punch, and a Zva pearl swirl. The lace and little pearly hearts are from my stash to finish off. I almost forgot, the little flower on the heart at the bottom is Mariannnne Creatables small flower set.
It doesn't show up well in the picture but in real life you can see the text quite easily. It is a quote by Albert Einstein and reads " There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
I'm not sure that I'm totally happy with it but it's done now. I actually found it quite difficult to just add a little colour. I think I would have been able to do all white tone on tone much more easily. But hey, that's what a challenge is all about isn't it?
Well I hope you all have a great day and manage to fit in a little crafting.
With love from Christine xx
