Girly Card (Dusty Attic/ Something Tattered)

Here is a card which is my first DT project for Something Tattered. I used the "Mars" (French for March) stamp set LOTS of amazing Dusty Attic chipboard and flowers too. The chipboard used is an ATC frame, wings from the Cost of Arms set and a Mini Wire Dress Form, plus a few Bridal Veil flowers.

Here is a peek at the pretty Something Tattered stamp set I created with. I used the swirly word Mars and stamped it on the oval ATC chipboard frame with brown chalk ink and then I used the flower vine in the corners with brown distress ink. such a crisp image since it's a high quality polymer stamp. The set only retails for $10.99 too!

Dusty Attic Fridge Magnets Tutorial

I decided to create something a little different - some shabby chic fridge magnets made with fabulous Dusty Attic chipboard. Click on images for larger views.

Here is a quick tutorial on how I created them:

STEP 1 - I used the Moroccan Accents set DA0837 and randomly dabbed them with gesso.

STEP 2 - I used Cranberry acrylic paint DA0910 on 4 pieces, and Dusty Pink acrylic paint DA0907 on 4 pieces (I did not paint the 4 smaller pieces).

STEP 3 - I topped the 8 painted pieces with Clear Crackle Varnish DA0900 and simply glued some chunky glitter glass to the 4 smaller pieces (without covering the very middle so I could add a gem there later on).

STEP 4 - I layered and glued my pieces together, including a magnet to the back of them (magnets from my local dollar store). Lastly, I added a gem to the middle.
