This week at the Ribbon Girl it is the Magnolia challenge and Mary and Andrea would like to see "Girly" cards. So here is my card for the challenge -
I began by making an easel card using a 8 inch card blank and Go Kreate's XXL square frilly frame # 5. I used white centura pearl to cut the top part of the card which I then embossed using Spellbinder's garden lattice embossing folder. I then matted and layered the card base and top with papers from LOTV's heartfelt paper pad and smaller frilly # 5 dies. I then added some lace from the Ribbon girl to the top of the card.
To create the stopper on the base of the card I cut a Die'sire heart doily from another of the papers from the pad and fixed it to the card base using double foam pads. I then stamped and cut out 3 sentiments from LOTV's sentiment tags, attached them to the heart doily and added a wooden heart button (from the Ribbon Girl) where they joined.
The image is Rose scented Tilda which I coloured with the following Promarkers -
- hair - cocoa, walnut and henna
- skin - satin, blush, dusky pink and coral
- wrap and slippers - cardinal red, crimson and burgundy. I have also paper pieced the bow and edges of the wrap and the pom poms of the slippers
- sky - pastel blue
- perfume bottle - warm grey 1 and warm grey 3. I also paper pieced the perfume bottle.
- shadow - warm grey 1
To finish I added some flowers to the card all from the Ribbon Girl.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
