It was Sam's 21 st Birthday yesterday, our fabuloso Business and Admin Apprentice and i thought i would make her a special card. Soooooooooooooooo here it is.
The stamp is the beautiful Mariella from Angelica and Friends and its the first time i have coloured her in. I've used my Spectrum Noir Pens and the purple was quite tricky as i couldn't find the colour to match the paper. So i coloured with PL1 and PL2 but over coloured with IG1 to tone the purple down. Then to take some of the colour from her dress i used the blender pen to remove some of the purple at the edges.
I've used Glamour Dust on her wings, and distress the edge of the cut out image with vintage photo distress ink. The flowers i have just purchased from The Ribbon Girl and the dies used are Scalloped tag and Damask Accents as they were on sale and i could not resist. nearly 50% off!!!! Well it would be rude to say no wouldn't it? The backing paper is Pion design, and the card is matted onto watercolour card as the base with kraft card underneath.
Its ages and ages since i entered a challenge so i am entering this at
CLP Sketch Challenge
And this is why i don't normally enter, because i get fed up of looking and need to make more cards......... never mind. So 2 is enough.
