Sometimes when I get lucky to come across a nice antique store I always look around for old images. Victorian Valentines are among the cutest ones. I love the colors and swirls and frills of once upon a time. Although I donâ€™t use much on my daily life. I keep the inspiration from old times near by.
Today I am sharing with you a project I made inspired by old timesâ€¦.and the papers. Oh my the papersâ€¦all from the Paper Temptress. Gilli Victorian was colored with my faithful copic markers.
The papers I used are from Paper Temptress. Just take a look at the Peach velvet stripes. Yes the stripes on this paper feel like velvet..it is just so pretty. It is also a bit on the see though range (vellum), this can give you sooo much room for creativity. I dry embossed the paper What is cool is that the loop cracked a bit exactly in a way that I could use as a â€œFrame holdâ€ for Gilli. Now I was very very excited how beautiful my embossing came out on the Eggplant brown bag paper. This paper is two sided..one brown and the other is eggpplantish color (did I just write that?lol)â€¦I just love it.. It is such a cleaver color. You guys have to visit the store and check the papers. Forget DP for a second check this papers outâ€¦it will sure make you cards super chic.
