So Incredably 'Precious'

 The heading says it all for the card I made for
our New Challenge over at
I knew what I was going to make as soon as I saw
Sistah Lia chose Slimline Cards.

I don't make many of the large traditional size but
my thistle die is a biggie!
I went with a Mixed Media type of card.
Lindy's Witch's Potion Purple and
Freak Franklin Lime Magical's were used on my Thistle
and  Tim's Faded Jeans oxide ink
on my background as the Scottish flag
is Blue and White.
Added stencilling and stamping
from Visible Image and AALL&Create
and a whitewash to tone it down.
 Kaisercraft Weathered Texture Die
backing my Thistle.
Inked my perfect sentiment 
as a Thistle is to me So Precious.
Tore the edges inked and
adhered to purple ribbon.
Hand drawn squiggles around the edges
adding to white card base.

Here is a close up highlighting the colours better.

Have you checked out what my Sistah's created?
Head over and check them out Here.
We'd love to see your Slimline creation in our Gallery.
PS - it doesn't have to be the Traditional Size
So go for it!
Thanks for visiting
