Cards ~ Dusty Attic

Hi there! I recently got a gorgeous DT-pack from the boss ~ Jennifer ~ and I just fell in love with all the beautiful new whimsy frames she has designed. They are fantastic! And, perfect for both layouts and cards. I decided to make a few cards, and used quoted sentiments on a couple of them. 

Here are all three cards:

This card was made after this months gorgeous moodboard. Love the bold colors (so not me, but I think I pulled it of?!). I painted the whimsy frames with Dusty in Color, Soot.

I used some black for this next card too, but also kept one frame and the sentiment raw. Added some brand new Dusty Attic bling too! And yes, you can spot some Dusty in Blooms, Evening Blush, there too.

The last card is more romantic, with lots of layers, doilies and soft colors. I kept all chippies raw, and finished this one off with some Dusty Attic pearls. Perfect!

Picture Perfect ~ Dusty Attic

Hello there! Helena here today to share some Dusty Attic inspiration with you! I have a layout in teal, grey and silver to show you today, with lots of gorgeous chippies and details.

The photo is of my darling son :) - found the perfect title for a perfect boy!

Lots of layers, as usual! This time I also used some of Dusty Attics layered chipboard. They are amazing! You can do so much with these - use them seperately, paint them in the same color or different colors. Love the possibilities!

Dusty Attic chipboard used:

Elegant Chain (used both layers)

Federation Frame Set (used one of the larger swirls in the middle).

Layered accents (used the bottom pieces)

"Picture Perfect" from Mini Caption #1

The Elegant Chain was first painted with white gesso, then embossed with grey and silver embossing powder. Finally I misted the top piece with dark grey mist. The swirl from the Federation Frame set was treated almost the same way, except I misted with dark teal mist. This gives a marble effect that I just love!

For the layered accent pieces I used Dusty Attic rusting powder. This stuff is amazing! 

And now close-ups:
