An old time love

ime goes by so fast but love never gets old…

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 don’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 times….and the papers. Oh my the papers…all from the Paper Gilli Victorian_JetaimeTemptress. Gilli Victorian was colored with my faithful copic markers. I am having so much fun experimenting with deep tones. I cannot wait to try more combos like that. I wanted colors that would give me a velvety and luxurious look. I am getting there…I think LOL. When I design Gilli, I always leave a lot of empty space on purpose so you can create patterns change the lines on her clothes and make your creations kick up a notch…your style. This time my idea was to create an illusion of a corset like top on Gilli. I also draw some tiny doodle flowers as embroidery on her puffy sleeves. After all we have to dress  you for a romantic date.

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 pGilli Victorian_Jetaime airetty. 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 with a cuttlebug folder. What is cool is that the loop cracked a bit exactly in a way that I could use as a “Frame hold” for Gilli. To enhance the swirls I added a super fine line of stickles over it.  Now I was veryEmbossing_PaperBagPTpaper 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)…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 out…it will sure make you cards super chic.
