DV 53 Pearls and Lace

We have a lovely challenge for you at Dream Valley today, pearls and lace. Who doesn’t love pearls and lace. Do remember to pop on over to the Dream Valley blog and check out the team’s creations.

We are sponsored by Saturated Canary and the team were lucky enough to be offered a gorgeous image from Krista to use in this challenge. I was cheeky and chose a double, PuppyLuv.

DV 53 Main

I coloured in the boy and girl’s hair and skin with copics, for the skin and promarkers for the hair. Then I just fancied something a little different to colouring their clothes, so I printed the image again twice onto some My Mind’s Eye paper from their Quite Contrary Range, Mary, Mary. I printed just two sheets up one in a sort of harlequin blue and the other in a soft floral pink. I think trimmed various bits of each of them out and paper pieced them in place. My base card was made with Frilly Square 10 from Go Kreate, as were all the mats, including the image. I layered a couple of sheets of the Mary, Mary paper onto the base card and then stuck lace ribbon around the edge of the image mat. The flowers were cut from Silver Edge Venise Lace and coloured with promarkers to tone in with the outfits the boy and girl are wearing. The pearls were coloured with the same promarkers.
