Soft and Sweet

Good evening friends.  I hope you are all doing well tonight.  We were blessed with sunshine today and I was able to photograph my project that I so wanted to share with you.

I just love the soft colors and the bow is just wonderful.  The pink button peeking out from under the folds is very sweet.  Drops from an Almost Amethyst ink refill were added to water in a small spray bottle.  I sprayed a length of seam binding until it was dyed to my liking.  It was then wadded up, stuffed into the corner of a plastic bag, and tied up tight.  The next day it was dry and wrinkled to perfection.  The metal frame is from our Vanilla HodgePodge kit "stained" with brown ink.  The Butterfly Punch was used to create our winged focal point with it's wings gently curved using the shaft of a paint brush.  The soft purples and pinks of our Tea Party collection were perfect for this vintage look.  And the Spiral Punch along the edge added a touch of whimsy.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your time with me.  You can leave a comment with this post if you'd like.  Simply select "comment" below and share your thoughts.  Good night!


  1. This is so pretty, gorgeous colours. That seam binding worked a treat, I have to look for some in the UK. LOL Bxxx

  2. Beautiful card! I love everything about it. I must have a lesson on how to tie that gorgeous bow! The seam binding dyed really well. I'll have to get me some and try it out. Thanks for sharing, Joanne.
