Dream Valley #30 Earth Tones

Our challenge at Dream Valley this fortnight is earth tones. Your creation, whether its a card or a Scapbook page or even some jewellery just has to be in the colours of  the natural Earth! Think browns, oranges and greens those sorts of colours! Remember you can enter anything you like as long as it follows our rules!

We are sponsored by with a fabulous £20 to spend in their store.

I used Wild Tilda and coloured her with promarkers and flexmarkers.

DV 30 Main

My papers are from basic grey, the ribbon and flowers are from my stash, the crystals I coloured with promarkers to tone in with the design’s colours.

The leaf embellishments are made from double sided adhesive film stuck onto card and then the other sticky side I rolled Frantage Mica Fragments into it until it was well covered. Have to tell you there was mica flakes everywhere, so if you try this yourself do it in a specific area like inside a box! I was picking flakes up for days afterwards because I did it on my craft desk. I then trimmed them out with a couple of different dies.

Here is a close up so you can see the effect better.

Here’s a close up, and as you can see from the bottom edge of the pic bits of those flakes were still getting everywhere when I took the photos! I didn’t realise until after I had mailed it, so I hope that they didn’t spread themselves into the recipients house too!
