Con San Valentino dietro l'angolo questa settimana la scelta del progetto è caduta su una card! Chi non fa almeno una card per questa festa??? E quindi eccola!

With Valentine's Day around the corner this week the choice of the project was mandatory: a card! Who does not make at least one card for this day ??? And so here it is!


Ho usato per il background un foglio di Heavystock con la fustella da embossing Grand Cercles di Carabelle Studio. Ho lavorato con diversi Distress oxides nella gamma dei rossi, arancio.... poi una volta ottenuto il risultato che volevo ho steso uno strato di Distress medium Collage Matte.
A questo punto ho scelto qualche Distress Crayons  sempre nella gamma dei rossi /arancio ( quello più scuro è Aged Mahogany uno dei miei colori preferiti!) e ho evidenziato gli angoli, i bordi e qualche parte dell'embossing in rilievo.

For the background I used a Heavystock sheet with the Carabelle Studio Grand Cercles embossing folder. I worked with different Distress oxides in the range of reds, orange .... then once I got the result  I spread a layer of Distress medium Collage Matte.
At this point I chose some Distress Crayons in the red / orange range (the darker one is Aged Mahogany one of my favorite colors!) and I highlighted the corners, the edges and some embossed parts.



Come potete vedere il sentiment è assolutamente a tema, estratto dal pack Idea ology Clippings stickers Paperie. Il cuore anch'esso Idea ology è coperto da uno strato di Rose Gold Metallique Wax di Prima Marketing.

As you can see the sentiment is absolutely themed, extracted from the Idea ology Clippings stickers Paperie pack. The heart, also Idea ology, is covered by a layer of Rose Gold Metallique Wax by Prima Marketing.


Per la cornice circolare ho mischiato varie polveri da embossing ( lista completa dei materiali in fondo come sempre) e l'effetto che ho ottenuto mi è piaciuto ma.... era troppo lucido!  Quindi ho utilizzato il Distress Collage medium matte per opacizzarlo e ottenere il risultato che volevo.

For the frame I mixed various  embossing powders  (complete list of materials at the bottom as always) and the effect I got I liked it but .... it was too shiny! So I thought that Distress Collage medium matte can was able to correct this  it and get the result I wanted. Done!


Ho tirato fuori dalle mie scorte la scatole dei pizzi e delle passamenerie, tutti tigorosamente davvero vintage, trovati in casa da vari parenti o donati da persone che sanno di questa mia passione!

I took from my own stuff the box that contains lace and passamenerie, all of them really vintage, found at home by various relatives or donated by people who know of my passion!


Eccovi un dettaglio della mia scatola!
This is a detail of my box!


Per i fiori ho scelto i piccoli bouquet bianchi di Idea-ology  e li ho tinti con Distress stain spray, foglie rigorosamente Tim Holtz Sizzix!

For the flowers I chose the white bouquets by Idea-ology and I dyed them with Distress stain spray,  Tim Holtz Sizzix dies for my leaves!



Con questa card partecipo al Challenge Melt it su A Vintage Journey.
