So, after reading about my card, hop over to Crafty Catz and join us in the challenge!!! my fellow DTs have beautiful cards for inspiration.. and don't forget to check out the new GDT for April, Teresa!
and this is my DT card!
The image is called Girlz - Bare feet from this week's sponsor Bugaboo, which they kindly donated.
As the theme is Spring time, I wanted to use some pretty floral papers, so I chose these ones from Crate Paper Little Bo Peep paper pad. I really loved the bright turquoise, pink and yellow colour on the flowers, so I decided for that colour scheme for my card.
The turquoise dots paper is a piece of scrap... I think it was from a magazine freebie...
All the papers have been distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Tool and Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad in Old paper. I also hand-stitched around two of the layers with white thread.
For this card I chose a layout from Sketch #261 from Sketch Saturday Challenge.
I coloured the image with my Promarkers.
I used: Tan, Almond, Satin, Turquoise, Duck Egg, Vanilla, Blossom and Antique Pink and blender pen.
Then I masked the image and inked around it with a yellow ink pad... I love the effect! it makes the image stand out a lot more!
Next to the image, I used the Doily border die from Sizzix, which I also distressed with Tim Holtz Old paper.
To follow the sketch, I used two types of washi tape and a button on the top right corner.
The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
The pearls are from Hobbycraft.
The brads (in middle of flowers), ribbon and bow are from my stash, from local shops.
I created the sentiment on my computer and I cut it with a tag die, which was a freebie from a magazine last summer.
