Good Morning Ladies, another thank you for a very special person and Im sorry its been a long time coming. I wanted to create something with these gorgeous H&S images for quite awhile and at last Ive been able to use it for a Challenge and this one is for the Stampin for the Weekend one which is a sketch and a colour combo of "Blue and Yellow".
Ive used this gorgeous image which had already been stamped onto white card and then coloured with my copic pens, Ive then cut her out and mounted her onto a piece of blue card, the sentiment is one of the Hero Arts ones thats been stamped and then cut out with my circle nestabilities dies then mounted in the same way. I should say that Ive distressed the edges with a very pale blue inkpad, unlike the dark mauve I used on the card for the LOV challenge its not so obvious and doesnt show my mistakes, luckily.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card, now Ive been asked several times how do I obtain this size card, well I cheat I buy A3 card then cut it down to what ever size I want to use, either a 8" card of a 7" card as its a lot easier to decide when I look at whats going onto the card itself, I find working with the 6"x 6" card a little constricting and the 8"x 8" sometimes to big and then I have to fill all the spaces.
Anyway Ive cut out a base mount of yellow card for my first layer and stuck on one of four papers from the Nitwit Collection Downloads, I seem to use a lot of these downloads as the patterns are not so overpowering for some of these delicate digi images. This first one has a very pretty leaf pattern on, then the second and third mounts have two different blue papers, and the little corner piece up in the right hand side is yet another from the same set.
The card was then created subject to the sketch and Ive then positioned my image in the centre with the sentiment underneath on the right. The little bits of ribbon on the left were put through my Xyron and stuck on with a couple of buttons on the end. To finish of I created a flower spray with two different size roses and some blue stamens, I believe I got them in a sewing shop, but I think Hobbycraft also has them. The last little touch is the heart gem in that little corner piece on the right hand side at the top.
This card has been entered for the following challenges:-
