Soaring Eagle



Finally Friday!

I`ve always loved the shabby vintage style, especially when It`s done by those who really know how to! I must admit though, that I`m not one of those...LOL! It just don`t come easy to me! Anyway, I really wanted to give it a try, and this is how it turned out.

I used the beautiful Soaring Eagle image by Heartfelt Creations. It is colored with distress inks and cut out. I used Spellbinders dies to create the frame, and the background is cuttlebug embossed. I also added clear EP on the embossed areas and heat embossed. Papers from Cosmo Cricket.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you`ll have a wonderful weekend!!

This is a stunning job, as usual! Love the way you used those Nesties!

WOWZERS! The colors, the lace, the COOL Nesties...and I LOVE the cross charm. For someone that has a hard time doing the shabby chic look, I'd say that you've pulled it off here fantastically!

You never cease to amaze me Yvonne...your work is so inspiring. Everytime I see you have posted a new creation I can't visit fast enough. Your card is beautiful and you added a lovely touch of shabby and vintage. It's funny I wish my creations were more elegant like yours instead of at times a bit too shabby:) We are so hard on ourselves some times aren't we....must be girl thing,lol. Have a wonderful weekend:)

I'm in a love/hate relationship with digital memory because of the way prices are always dropping. I hate buying SDs for my R4 / R4i at (what seems to be) a crazy bargain price only to see it become a whole lot cheaper a couple of weeks later.
