I recently purchased a couple home accessories....from The Shabby Chateau Etsy Shop. Donna's shop is one of my favorites and I love reading her blog because I get all kinds of creative repurposing ideas. So when I opened my box, I received a nice little surprise gift from Donna that I wanted to share. Being that I'm crazy about seashells & starfish & sand dollars...and blue, green, turquoise and aqua....it was love at first sight.
I love the vibrant colors placed on top of the vintage sheet music.
Such a wonderful combination.
I love the Blue Starfish with the smaller green starfish in the background.
Such a beautiful collection. Almost too pretty to use...so I will be saving these for very special occasions.
I asked Donna to share how she made them. So here are her instructions:
"Let's see, for your cards I started with pre-made brown cards, then used some vintage sheet music I applied with a glue stick. The shell and starfish motif papers, and other papers I used were purchased in Maui when we vacationed there this past February. I like bringing things back from trips that I can use in projects. Then I used some "Diamond Glaze" dimensional glaze on the shells and starfish, and added some Martha Stewart coarse clear glitter".
So thank you Donna - for the lovely gift....once again reminding me why would I ever buy a store bought card again.
