TLT - Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Vintage!!! (plus a new challenge blog and a candy alert!)


Vous aimez cette carte? Vou pouvez l'obtenir!
Do you like this card? You can get it!

Cette fois-ci c'est Hayley qui a choisi le challenge pour notre rendez-vous du mardi avec les tampons de Ladybug Crafts Ink. Et elle a choisi un thème difficile: chat ou chien, dans un style shabby chic / vintage. Et moi le vintage, ce n'est vraiment pas mon truc! Alors j'ai fait un gros effort et j'ai réussi à vieillir mon papier (encrage à l'encre "bronze, bords abîmés avec une lame de ciseaux). J'ai même encré le bord de mes fleurs. Bon, je ne sais pas ce que les habitués du style en penseront, mais c'est la plus shabby/vintage que je puisse faire! Cette carte est également particulière car elle fait du recyclage de mon mariage: la fleur blanche en tissu était dans ma coiffure, les deux aiguilles à perle dans mon bouquet!
J'ai utilisé pour cette carte le tampon Bon Apetite Magnum. J'ai suivi le sketch de Sparkle Dreams Challenge (j'ai même suivi leurs règles optionnelles: des fleurs et du brillant, avec les strass qui forment les deux bandes à gauche du chat...).
J'ai une grande nouvelle à vous annoncer: à partir du 2 novembre, Totally Ladybug Tuesday devient un challenge ouvert à tous! Et en attendant le premier challenge, il y a un blog candy à gagner! Pour gagner: affichez la bannière ci-dessous sur votre blog, avec un lien vers Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog, devenez membre du blog de challenge et inscrivez-vous sur le message du blog candy (toujours sur le blog de challenge).

It's Totally Ladybug Tuesday again... This time Hayley chose the challenge for our card with a Ladybug Crafts Ink stamp. And she chose a very difficult theme: cat or dog in a shabyy chic/ vintage style. Vintage really is not my thing! I really had to force myself to distress the paper (inked the edges with a bronze ink, then distressed them with my scissors). I even inked the edges of my flowers. I don't know what people used to shabby chic / vintage will think, but it is as much vintage as I can do! This card is very special as I recycled elements from my wedding: the white fabric flower was in my hair, the pearl pins in my bouquet!
For this card I used the stamp Bon Apetite Magnum. I followed the sketch from Sparkle Dreams Challenge and I even followed their option: flowers and sparkle (see the rhinestones that form the "ribbons" at the left of the cat? These are my sparkle...)

I have big news for you: from 2nd November, Totally Ladybug Tuesday becomes a challenge open to all. And while waiting for the first challenge, there's a blog candy! To win, you'll have to display the challenge blog banner (just before the English part of this post) and link it to the Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge Blog, then you have to become a follower of the challenge blog and leave your name with Mr Linky (on the challenge blog). The winner will be announced on 2nd November in the first Challenge post.

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
