Hello again! Natasha here and I hope you are all well! I wanted to share a card I made a little while ago. I used paper from Tim Holtz's Vintage Shabby Collection. I really love the bird on this paper. I stitched the flourishes using my Quick Tip found HERE.
The hinge is a chippie made by The Dusty Attic. I didn't actually plan for it to come out looking the way it does but I LOVE the end result. I originally embossed it, painted it white and then inked it with a color similar to the brown cord I used for my lacing. I then sanded off pieces of the hinge to give it a distressed look and applied rock candy Crackle paint on top. Somehow the combination of all of those elements caused the hinge to turn a pinkish color and it ended up matching my paper perfectly!! What luck! I guess sometimes the best effects are the result of accidents!
