Well it's back to normal now. I have a couple of days more off work and some birthdays and anniversaries that need cards making. Here is the first one -
I started with a 8inch square card base and matted and layered it with papers from LOTV's Beach Bliss paper pad. I used the layout from the current edition of Cardmaking and papercraft magazine (issue 126) although I have altered it slightly. The image is LOTV's dancing queen (ST471) and reminds me so much of my friend Lisa whose birthday this card is for. It has been coloured with the following Promarkers -
- skin - satin, blush and dusky pink
- hair - terracotta, chestnut and burnt umber
- dress, shoes, bows and parcel - duck egg, cool aqua, turquoise and marine
- radio - sandstone, tan and caramel
- music - black
- shadow - cool grey 1
- sky - pastel blue
- stars - buttercup
The sentiment is from LOTV's set 62 Quotables - friendship which I cut out using Spellbinder's labels 18 and inked whilst still in the die with antique linen distress ink. I matted it onto a larger labels 18.
To finish I added some flowers and pearls from the Ribbon Girl.
I added some stamped swirls to the inside of the card using Clarity Stamp's leafy swirl and antique linen distress ink.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
Thank you for stopping by.
