June 4, The vintage heart

Welcome back to my blog!

Sorry I have been away for a bit, my days like yours I'm sure have been a blurr. There still aren't enough hours in the day, well there might be if I didn't have to sleep LOL. Then I had some technical difficulties, My printer decided it wanted to  die. So then I had to get a new one and I couldn't for the longest time figure out how to get cardstock to print in it.( cause I use mostly digital images) I went on line trying and trying to find some where that would explain it, I couldn't find nothing that would help. I pulled up the manual online and read it over and over, I even got my husband to help me.( he's way better on the computer than I am). After just about being ready to take it back to the store and get a different one. I read the manual again and the light bulb went on, I changed some properties on the printer and BINGO  it printed. So now I'm good to go.
This is my inspiration card for this week.
I used a Whimsy image called  The Vintage Heart from designer Fairydust Images. It's a stunning image to work with lots of detail in her. The colors I used kind of came from the peacock feathers in her hair.
Then the purple just seemed to be the proper color combo for it.
 I hope that you check out all the great new images at The Whimsy store this month from all the terrific designers and get inspired to create a wonderful card.
 I added stardust stickles kind of here and there on the image to give it that magical feel.
 A closer look at the flowers that I added in the complementary color of the card.
Supplies: Copic markers, Bazzill cardstock, spellbinder Decorative Labels Eight, Stampendous sentiment, memory box flower dies, Martha Stewart branch punch, Queen and co pearls, Whimsy vine dies, Distress ink, stardust stickles.
