Sorry I am a bit late with uploading this morning, its been a bit hectic here. Anyway its Tuesday that means its time for A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge, this week we have a theme for you to use the colours “BLUE AND GREEN”, my fellow teamies have really pushed out the boat this week and created some stunning cards using this colour scheme.
Today I have used one of the new Lili of The Valley Molly Harrison Fairies "Garden of Wishes”, I am loving her in these colours. The papers are from my stash and I think are a couple of years old so no idea who made them. I am into swirls at the moment and have used a die from Mariannes Dies to create these two. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valleys circular sentiment set.
I have used Seam Binding from Wild Orchid Craft and had a go at distressing it, I don’t possess any Mini Misters as recommend by Bev and like us all I couldn’t wait so thought I would try it with Glimmer Mist it seems to work!!, The ribbon started off as a pale aqua blue, I scrunched the ribbon and sprayed it with Key Lime Pie and Pearl Glimmer Mist, then dabbed all over with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink, as I said I am really pleased with the results.
The Copics used on this image are:
Flesh E21, E00, E0000, Hair E71, E70, E40, Wings YG11, G20
I never imagined I would make a card using a Guinea Pig image, but I just love this little well dressed gentleman. He is one of the images from the Beatrix Potter Appley Dapply Stamp Plate that is released on Friday 21st by Crafters Companion, there is a fabulous CD full of Backing Papers, Decoupage, Greetings in fact everything you would expect from a Crafters Companion CD, they really are the best in the crafting CD market.
Now those of you who know me well, know I have a orange phobia!!!!, and I have made 2 orange cards in 2 days, I must be conquering it!!! The base easel card was made with the smallest die in the GoKreate Scalloped Circle XXL Die, the largest layer is a Mariannes design Doiley Die Cut, and then I have used circle nesties to cut the rest of the layers. The BP comes from the accompanying CD.
Hope you like
