Hey, hope all is well with you and yours.
Today I would like to share a card incorporating my favourite colour combo of all time. Lilac/purple and aqua/turquoise. I cannot explain it but these colours make me happy so as I have had a nightmare migraine this weekend I thought I ought to cheer myself up.
The image is my current obsession which is anything drawn by the amazing Krista Smith, and this one is Canary Love. So gorgeous. I hope I have done her justice with my colouring as I used my new Spectrum Noir pens (liking them a lot!) but I’m still getting used to the range of colours.
I paper pieced her dress using several different papers from my favourite pad from LOTV which is the NitWit Collection called ’Promises’ (yum, yum) and added shade with my pens. I even cut out a flower and put that in her hair. Not too sure if the paper piecing is overly obvious, I’ll give you a close up just in case.
I cut my image out using Spellbinder Labels 17 and cut a couple more in the complimentary colours to add a layered ’shadow’ behind. The ‘Promises’ paper was also used in the background with a Spellbinders A2 Bracket Border cut along the edge to add interest.
The frame is made from paper clay and a Martha Stewart mould and I coloured it with Dusty Concord and Peacock Feather DI’s, with a dash of Stickles for good measure. The sentiment is from Dawn Bibby and quite appropriate for the image I thought.
So there you are, flat backed pearls and ribbon say ‘card done’!
Smiling always (!)!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
