CIC - Ephemera - Perfume laden XOs

Hello everyone,

Did you check the Stash challenge at Cupcake Inspirations blog?  This week we are challenge you to make a card/project featuring Ephemera. (Items of collectible memorabilia, typically written or printed ones, that were originally expected to have only short-term usefulness or popularity.)

If you are a serious Crafter then there are chances that you are a serious hoarder :D If you are like me you also would have bought those pretty stickers, die cuts, to be used on your projects! Finally it's time for me to put them to use. I had these cute little Perfume bottle that I saw at a stationary shop and had been hoarding since more than a year. I used one of the bottles and used the pretty watercolour floral elements pack by CrafTangles for the card. And I have used Scripty XOXO by Lawn Fawn.

I used SSS stitched whirl background to depict the fragrance spreading and then thought why not add splatters to depict the light spray? Recently I had seen a card by Yoosun Hur with similar splatters on this bg and I loved it. I may be splattering more in coming times, I think the bug has bit me.

Hope you will get your Ephemera out and give them some love and join the challenge. It's great that we have such challenges that force us to think beyond our comfort zone.

I would love if you'd stop by at my recent venture - My You tube channel :)
