Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Photo Inspiration

*Please scroll down for my Penny Black Saturday Challenge DT Card*


This week it's Tracie's turn to set the theme for the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge...and she has chosen:

'Photo Inspiration'

I took my inspiration from the colours, and the floral pattern on the wallpaper. The image is 'Spring Swing' by Lili of the Valley, which I coloured using watercolour pencils, then cut out using one of my 'Deckled Rectangle' Nesties (available here at the Secret Crafter). The papers are from three different BasicGrey pads: 'Wisteria'; 'Sultry'; and 'Boxer'...and I used my Cuttlebug 'Flower Fantasy' folder for the embossing. I distressed all of the edges and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The flowers, are by Prima, the brads are Papermania, and the adhesive pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
