Two new cards for Friday the Thirteenth

Good morning! Today I have a couple cards that I've created for Friday the Thirteenth using their beautiful papers. I hope you will like them. On the first card I added some texture by distressing and tearing the edges. Then added a bit more texture using a stencil and modeling paste, smudging it in random spots for a bit of a distressed look, then added pearls to the design. I added a thin piece of cardboard between the layers for a touch more dimension. Next I added my flower clusters and a lacy double bow with a birdcage charm sewn on. I finished it off with a couple of yellow flutters and a few random touches of gesso using a small sponge.

 And here's my second card. For this card I cut a distressed edge with my scissors, then inked the edges with Prima chalk ink for definition. I then mounted a thin piece of cardboard between the papers for added dimension. I've added some stenciling and pearls to this one as well. Next I added my layers of laces and ribbons. I created the paper ruffle by lightly wetting a strip of paper so that it was easier to manipulate, then added my ruffles and allowed it to dry. And then I added my flower cluster, with more pearls, and finished it with a couple of contrasting flutters.

Well that's it from me today. I truly appreciate you stopping by and allowing me to share my cards with you today. Hope you have a creative day!
