My card today has been created for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge "For the Girls" and Ive used this new image of Tilda as a Ballerina then masked her to stamp the castle scene behind. I tried to colour the scene as a night scene and Im concerned that it might be a bit dark but hopefully it wont upset the balance to much. I coloured her with my copic pens, the cut her out with the large Blossom Nestabilitie die, cutting out the leg and sky first before slotting the die behind to allow me to cut them out. It was then mounted onto a dark pink mount cut with the same die. The sentiment was created on my computer and mounted with the same colour card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and a first layer of pink card and one of three papers from the new Papermania Henbury Lane designs, a very pretty rose paper, the two mounts in the centre have been created by cutting the paper into 5" squares then using one of my MS all around punch sets, this one is a arched set, these were then layered up one on top of each other in a star shape, and a ribbon was then placed around the centre and attached to the back of the first layer.
The mounted image was then placed in the centre and my sentiment at the bottom on the right, Ive then created a flower with some of the left over papers and hung a charm from the pearl brad and spacer in the centre. I then stuck the flower on top of a arrangement of punched out leaves in the top left hand corner, and to finish of Ive popped some dark pink pearl gems in the other two corners.
I now want to let you know that Im going to be away for a few days so wont be visiting your blogs at least till Friday, and there wont be any more cards posted till at least then, so I hope you wont miss me to much.
