Well I finally found the time to make and blog my challenge entry. I adore this stamp from LOTV and I wanted something not too overdressed to show her off.
I used some old papers that I had in my stash from the 'Nitwit' Collections, I love the subtlety of them. I layered the panels onto silver mirri card and hand stitched each layer with silver thread. (hope you can see it OK, daughters fancy camera's battery ran out, so I had to rely on ol' faithful - LOL)
I used two layers of ribbon, one of 'pink tulip' seam binding from Wild Orchid Crafts (WOC) and the overlaid is an organza polka dot ribbon
, again from my stash. I used one small rose from WOC, which I blinged with a little crystal stickles. The sentiment is an LOTV layered onto silver mirri.
The image was coloured with my favourite Copics and Promarkers, which I find work really well together. I used Neenah Card stock for the image as I find that this is best with the marker pens. I used a couple of gems in baby pink and crystal on the image, and one in her hair, which was layered on silver mirri card. I couldn't leave the inside out, so here it is.
The inside reflected the front in the three panels in a co-ordinating paper with a punched card topper to write. The sentiment on the inside matches the one on the front carrying the theme through.
I have decided to enter this into the following challenges:
Lili of the Valley - Follow the Sketch
Crafts and Me - Stitches
I hope you like this as much as I enjoyed creating it, I'd love to know what you think
