Good Morning Girls I dont know about your area but this one has had some strange weather here, one minute sun then the next cloud and even a bit of rain. Anyway todays card has been created for the brand new Challenge from Kenny K and it has to be in "Pastels", I suspect youve seen some these images around on other girls blogs, and I did refrain from being tempted, then I decided as I have two granddaughters one in her teens and the other just eleven it would be more appropriate to give them cards with these images they are definitely more their kind of thing. Anyway Ive used this little miss whos got herself a MP3 player and Ive coloured her for the first time for me anyway as a blonde, with my copic pens and promarkers, Im apt to use them both if I carnt quite get the right colour for the shade I want. Ive then cut her out with the Nestabilitie Label 10 and Ive drawn around the edge of the die to create a mount for her. Now I have a confession, when I fist cut her out the damn die moved and choped through her foot, so rather than waste my coloured image I cut her out completely and then mounted her up on another printed image of the same size, cheeky dont you think, the only thing you notice is the cut through her left shoe. Anyway Ive used on of the CC stamps as a sentiment and cut this out the same way as the image, I should say that I inked the edges of both with a pale pink inkpad.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of pink card, and one of three papers from my friend Donna of Bearly Mine Designs, these are her Flowers, Plaids and Spots design papers, the first one is an all over rose and pink paper, with the second a plaid and the third a spot, these two were stuck on two piece of pink card and set at angles on the base layer. Across the centre I have stuck a piece of lace (not that its easy to see) and a harlequin pink ribbon across the top. Then positioned my mounted image in the centre with my sentiment at the bottom on the right.
I then created a flower spray from three roses, one 40cm and two 25cm and four white asters and two pink rose buds, these were stuck in the corner with some silicone glue and some punched out rose leaves in the gaps. To finish of Ive put a swirl of gems in the bottom left hand corner, these were purchased a £1. shop while were were in Scotland, and they didnt have any instructions as to how to stick them to your card, I really did have some fun getting them of the carrier sheet as they started falling all over the place.
Im entering this card into the following challenges:-
