A Few challenges and a DT call

02.11.10 Card

Donna at Bearly Mine Designs is looking to expand her Design Team and I am entering this card.

Like my post last week for Crafty Cardmakers I am using some of Donna’s gorgeous ‘FREE’ papers as the basis for my design.

I chose three that matched beautifully and used them to make this easel.

The image is from Sheena Douglass and I stamped it and embossed it with her Sheena Wow platinum sparkle embossing powder and then coloured it with cosmic shimmer paints. 02.11.10 Image The only paper that isn’t from Bearly Mine is the aqua coloured paper at the very back of both the image and sentiment mats as I wanted something to make the image pop off the card a bit more.02.11.10 Angle The ribbon is from my stash and the flowers I made by dismantling some Wild Orchid flowers and spraying them with Glimmer Mists in Timeless Lilac and Touch Of Mica in Purple. I also sprayed some plain white flowers with the Glimmer Mists and another larger flower I smeared with versamark and embossed with the Sheena Wow Powders again, and I did the same with the flourishes on the top of the card as I wanted some glitter but not too bright like mirri would have been. 02.11.10 Flowers I went for some simple butterflies for the top of the card as there are some gorgeous colours/patterns in the papers and I wanted them to be able to be seen. I did just ground round the top sheet’s edge with a white gel pen though to match it in a bit to the design on the lower sheet.02.11.10 Sentiment I have stuck a row of little purple gems as the prop to make the easel stand and made my own sentiment from a quote I found online and using two different fonts turned it into a birthday quote as this is going to be a birthday card for a friend. Another flourish which I sanded down from mirri and another flower finishes it off.
