I was really excited when I discovered that Mo Manning was going to start her own Challenge Blog, and even more so today to find that the first challenge incorporates the colour Purple, to be honest I suspect a lot of you know its my favourite colour as well as Bella's and my mums.
Anyway Ive used the new image thats being used as the title for the new blog, its Bella and Bronte drawing, I think its gorgeous and wanted to buy and use it as soon as found out it was for sale. Ive printed her out and coloured her with my copic pens, after which I have cut her out with my rotatrim and use a purple chalkpad to distress the edges, then mounted her onto a piece of mauve pearlescent card. I then designed a greeting which I felt went well with her and then printed it out and did the same with the edges and mounted this also onto a piece of the same coloured pearlescent card.
The card is a 8"x 8" base white card, and for the first layer Ive used another piece of the same pearlescent card and for this card Ive used one of the four designs of papers for the first layer, (they are Noah's Ark papers from Nitwit Downloads) I love this site it has the most gorgoeus papers. Ive then used the other three papers and my doily edge Martha Stewart Border punch, then layered them up and put a piece of the ribbon I won in some blogcandy from Jacqui around the centre and attached it to the back of the first mount.
On top of this I have stuck my image with some foam tape, and the greeting Ive put below it to the right handside of the card. To finish of Ive used two different crochet flowers and popped a pearl brad through their centres, from one of them Ive hung a dog charm. I then punched out some pine leaves stuck them onto the card with some silicone glue and then popped the flowers on top.
