Canary Love!

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’!

See ya!

Smiling always (!)!

Scribbly hugs

  4. Oh fabulous Jane, really fabulous! I have a whole heap of SC digis, but after colouring a few chickened out of colouring anymore - they are just so detailed! So you are much braver than me!!!

    Hope the migraine is going, I suffer from those as well (thankfully fewer now than when I was younger) so I sympathise.


  5. Gorgeous, Jane - the paper piecing looks really good and I love her hair too!
