Shades of Teal

It's time for a new linky party to open at Make It Monday!
We're excited to have Scrapper's Delight back as our sponsor this week.  
They offer a nice selection of digital images and I'm using Winter Elf on my card.  

I colored her in shades of teal with Copic markers and fussy cut her then set her aside.
To create my card I used a teal cs base, added a text dp by Tim Holtz, and cut two diagonal pieces from a Kaisercraft dp. I distressed all of the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and used water to soften some of the edges so I could tear the paper and give it a torn, distressed look. Next I stamped the lamp post and scroll (upper right corner) with Vintage Photo then distressed the blossoms and image. Some vintage trim was added to soften the divide of the diagonal papers and two wood butterflies were distressed, glued together and topped with a resin rose. Turquoise gemstones were added to the scroll and Lagoon Stickles add a touch of bling to the diamond on the elf's hat and dress. I wanted to create some depth on the cream diagonal panel and did so by using a cosmic scroll stencil and vintage photo. I wrapped my card by using rub-on's (leaves, postage stamp and doilies) to give it a vintage feel. I'm not normally a teal kind of gal but I think I've changed my mind about this color. :)
Prize is winner's choice of 3 free images!
For more inspiration please visit the blogs of my teamies and check out their creations.

Thanks Linda for sharing your talent with us at Make It Monday!
That's all for me today, hope each of you have a wonderful week and for those celebrating a very Happy Valentine's Day!
