Todays card has been created with one of the Pink Gem Designs called Mimi in Hat and Coat, you can see several different designs on the website http://pinkgemdesigns.blogspot.com/, Janet has some really lovely ones.
I firstly stamped the image onto white card and coloured it with my Derwent Intense Watercolour pencils and then used a watercolour brush to blend the colours, but on top of this I used my Artquest paints to give it a sheen, I then left it to dry, after which I punched it out with one of my Oval Nestabilitie Dies.
The base card is a piece of A4 card folded landscape onto which I have stuck a piece of some of Nancy Watts papers from one of my magazines. I then embossed some Red card with my Cuttlebug and stuck this across the centre, I then used another of the Nancy Watts papers and a Fiskars border punch and placed this on top of the red card. Through the centre I have stuck a ribbon.
The main stamped image has been mounted on a large Oval Scalloped Holographic mount cut with another of my Nestabilitie Dies and placed in the centre of the ribbon.
To finish of the card I have made up some flowers and stuck a staple in the centre and mounted them to the left of the image, above this I have stuck a ribbon bow. I finished of the card with a tag which came with the Nancy Watts papers and stuck this to a piece of red card and cut around the edge with my scallop scissors and punched a hole at the top and put a piece of the ribbon left from the bow through and stapled them together. I then stuck tiny jewels along the edge of the punched out centre piece of paper and on the tag.
