Good evening folks
The challenge this week at Allsorts is to use white, gold plus one other colour. I chose to use blue and here is the card I made -
I also used a sketch from LOTV's ideas to inspire blog on Saturday which you can find here. I began by cutting a square using Tonic's layering square die set and white centura pearl which I then embossed using an Embossalicious script embossing folder. I then matted this square onto a piece of blue centura pearl, covered a 6 inch with gold centura pearl and then added the embossed piece of card.
I cut a strip of gold and one of blue centura pearl and embossed them with an embossing folder which came free with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. I attached the blue strip, added some lace (from the Ribbon Girl) and then attached the gold strip.
The image is called Midsummer's night (ST500) from LOTV which I coloured with the following Promarkers -
- hair - buttercup, tulip yellow and mustard
- skin - satin, blush and dusky pink
- clothes - pastel blue, denim blue, arctic blue and sky blue
- wings - ivory and pastel beige
- toadstools - midnight blue, indigo, sunflower, gold, ivory, pastel beige and khaki
- grass - pear green and moss
- stars - gold and sunflower
- sky - twilight sky and polar blue
I added lots of glitter to the fairy's wings and her headband and then cut the image out with Spellbinder's matting basics A. I inked the image whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink and then matted and layered it onto blue and gold centura pearl. I attached it to the card base with foam pads.
To finish I added some stars (cut using X-cut star dies) and a Spellbinders blooms 3.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenge -
