Good Morning Ladies what a wonderful day yesterday was, it really turned out beautiful and hot lets hope today is the same. Anyway todays card has been created for Mo's "Merged Images" and Cute Card Thursday's "Three colours Blue, Black and Orange" and I must apologise for using this image with these colours Im not sure it really works but I hope it doesnt look to bad.
Ive used Mos two little lasses "Sophie" thats the little girl holding her doll, and "Sleepy Sage" shes the one with the teddybear, arnt they gorgeous, and I like the similarity in the hairstyle and felt they would look extremely good together. I used my graphics program to merge them together I wont go into the details but its possible with some instructions by the side of you, luckily one of the DT team (of Mos) has made a good tutorial on doing it. Anyway I printed the image out onto card and coloured it with my copic pens I then used my Nestabilitie Die Label 10 to cut it out, then after I drew around the edge onto blue card to create a mount for it. The sentiment was created on my computer and mounted again on some blue card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" with a base card of blue, and the papers are from different design sets of Nitwit Downloads, a pretty blue leaf sprig for the first layer, and the second is a black paper with white sprigs on which Ive used one of Martha Stewart border punches along the edge, on top of this Ive stuck another piece of orange card and a spotted orange paper on top. A piece of black paper was then made into a ribbon strip with a piece of orange ribbon wound around to the back of the first layer.
Ive then positioned my mounted image towards the top and my sentiment strip at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive created a flower from some left over paper and threaded a pearl brad with a silver spacer through the centre and hung a teddy bear charm from the brad. This was then mounted on a layer of punched out fern leaves, and the last thing I did was to pop a couple of orange gems at the bottom and top corners.
I am entering this card into the following challenges :-
