Stamp - Aspects of Design 52 - Japanese Plum Blossom, White card for base. Orange, Green and Purple card. Whisper pens, Waterbrush, Spotty ribbon sticker, Silver peel off - sentiment (coloured with peels off pens)Rub on Gems from stash.
I made this card following the sketch provided, I used a blue card and used orange paper which I ripped along the edges using my ruler with a jaggered edge - I only had one blue flower so i coloured the other one in !!! I didnt have a blue and orange sentiment either so i printed one on publisher - the image is a Sarah Kay one. I added the little stars as i thought the card did not look finished. I am very happy with this card, and i feel that doing this blog is actualy helping me with my cards big time. Thanks for looking everyone.
Sugar Nellie gorjuss girl stamp, coloured with promarkers, glamour dust added to the wings and distress inks used around the image. Used both sides of a double sided paper by My Mind's Eye - starburst 'little blossom' dots/ brown, with coredinations cardstock, all edged with distress inks. Flowers and roses sprinkled with glamour dust and a little charm on a chain added to the back of one of the flowers. Circular sentiment stamped in clear ink and embossed in white, cut out with nestabilities circles. Finished off with some tiny flower beads, including one in her hair.
The papers are from Basic Grey Lemonade and Lime Rickey collections. The owl is a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I embossed it on Core'dinations cardstock and sanded some of the design away to reveal the lighter green colour beneath. I highlighted the swirl with a Clear Sakura Glitterpen from Joanna Sheen.The spotty flowers are Flora Doodles also from Joanna Sheen and the daisies are Primas. Craftwork Cards card candy in the centre finishes them off nicely. The sentiment is a rubber stamp from a little owl set by Hero Arts
I turned the sketch 90 degrees as I wanted to use this image which is a digital stamp by Mo Manning called "End of Summertime" I coloured it with promarkers using vanilla and pastel pink for the skin and vanilla, cocoa, cinnamon and shale for the hair. The top is apple and emerald and the jeans are pastel blue and sky blue, I added a grey to areas I wanted a bit darker and blended in. Papers are MME and the blue is a freebie printable. Flowers are flora doodles (Cape gold, peach, green and blue box)
