I went for more muted tones with this version, using one of my favourite colour combinations of blue and brown.
The Chandelier image was stamped using Adirondack Stream dye ink and matted onto the blue diamonds paper from the Prima Madeline paper pad.
The card blank was completely covered with the Brown Script Floral paper from the same paper pad and the image panel added to the right.
A strip of the Alphabet paper was added to a strip of the Multi Border paper and this was then added over the image panel. Faux stitching was then added over the joins of the paper pieces using the Zigzag Stitch stamp from the HOTP Stitches stamp set and ColorBox Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk ink.
Two mini tags were coloured around the edges using the Chestnut Roan ink and letters were stamped using the Stream ink and a Studio G mini alphabet stamp set. The tags were attached to some teal embroidery thread and added to the card and a brown Card Candi from Craftwork Cards was added over the ends of the threads.
Highlights were added to the Chandelier image using Glossy Accents and DecoArt Crystal Glamour dust.
All papers were distressed with the Chestnut Roan ink.
The inside of the card was also decorated using a photo corner stamp from the Stamps Away Bookplates, Corners and Anchors stamp set, stamped onto the blue diamonds paper used on the front of the card using the Stream ink and cut out
Slits were cut into the photo corners and the writing paper inserted into the corners, and a strip of the Brown Script Floral paper used on the front of the card was added across the paper and the sentiment, from Elzybells, was stamped using the Stream ink.
