As you can see by the post title above, I went back into to my "grab bag" for today's card.
In case you haven't followed me for long and haven't seen me refer to this before, my "grab bag" is a large baggie of embellishments that I previously made/altered/painted, etc. for a project, but ended up not using. So I put them in my large "grab bag" and every now and then, I pull some of the items out and challenge myself to make up a card or altered project using them.
This time, I pulled out a group of aged/vintage-looking pieces - an inked and mini-pearl embellished kraft and white cardstock clock face, an inked air-dry clay frame, and an inked-up wooden flourish. Once I chose a piece of patterned paper from Prima's Stationer's Desk collection, it all came together beautifully...I decided on deep red accents to the vintage brown pieces...
The air-dry clay frame was already inked with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo Distress Inks from the first time I intended to use it. I added some Bisque Liquid Pearls around the beaded edges as another accent this time. The key charm inside was originally black...after a coat of gesso and red craft paint to the outside edges, I distressed it lightly with extra fine sandpaper...
Red lilies, and red and cream roses surround and accent the frames...
And the inked wooden flourish fit perfectly up in the corner, embellished with a few more roses and pearls...
