She asked us to use digi images. I had bought a set from her ages ago and never used them so this was the perfect opportunity to find them on the computer and set to!
I chose "Louise" and the boutique background, printed and cut out to fit an 8x8 CWC card.
The base paper is from Bo Bunny Vicky B range.
The image is coloured with Copic markers.
The window area looked very empty so I found my Bella stamps and stamped light images to give depth, I think it worked quite well.
The pavement was blank so I used the chisel tip of several grey copics to create a paving then highlighted areas with a fineliner.
The canopy was white so I created a candy stripe and added a line of stickles.
The card looked too plain so I used a Martha Stewart deep edge punch with brown bazzill and created a trellis down the left hand side. I threaded some blossoms and a beaded stem through and coiled the ends.
Leaves punched with a McGill punch added the foliage.
Plenty of lovely cards by the DT on the Scrapology blog along with details of this months prize, so hop on over and have a peek.
Firstly - a very Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter Lianne.
I will share her card with you next week (hint hint!)
When we went to Disneyland Paris last November, she and Chloe bought me a silcone mould of mickey mouse heads as a Thank-you. So, when asked what cake she'd like for her birthday, this was the choice.
The cake stuck badly to the mould and didn't come out well :(
Lianne doesn't like buttercream so I had planned on adding Glace icing and hundreds & thousands.
Here is the result - what a joke lol!
She said they tasted nice so thats good.
Then, I've been a little down lately - a few issues - so Robert sent me these absolutely stunning flowers to cheer me up!
Lastly, a pass!
These were made for a friend's Mums birthday.
I put them into a box I got from Lakeland and tied it with a double bow.
A close up below although it doesn't show the edible pink glitter very well.
On Saturday at Cardinal Colours Crop we celebrated Anita's Birthday - a little early I know but we won't see her again til the end of the month.
This is the card I made for her.
I used a 6x6" version of BG Nook and Pantry paper for the background and layered with an embossed sheet of white card then a frame cut with a Marianne die.
The image is House Mouse and is coloured with Copic pens aswell as some gellyroll glitter pens.
I distressed the edge and inked before adding with 3d pads.
A few roses from my stash were place under the image and a CWC greeting mounted onto an SU punched oval which I have stickled with gold.
I made Chocolate Orange Cupcakes for the occassion decorated with Orange jellies and Lindt Intensly Orange Chocolate pieces. Here they are ready in the box to go.
Oh, I forgot to mention the edible glitter too!
A close-up :)
Believe it or not I didn't have one as I have given up sweet things for lent, especially chocolate!
Happy Birthday Anita, hope you had a lovely day and will enjoy your birthday on the 21st.
I have used the same set of papers ~ Basic Grey- Sweet Threads ~ and larger images of the photographs to create a "double".
I ran a pen line along the edge of the white cardstock again and a rough double circle to tie them together.
The roses are stapled in place.
The same butterflies were also used along with some of the element stickers from the collection page of papers.
The flowers were cut from the same sheet as before.
As it's to match the other, I decided they would be purr-fect together, hence the title.
This is my take on the sketch.
I have used Basic Grey Sweet Threads papers and white dotted swiss bazzill.
The strip along the bottom has been cut with shredding scissors to create a fringed effect then random
strips added vertically. I cut the flowers from a floral sheet and raised some on 3d foam pads.
I used bubble wrap again to form a dotty pattern along with some splatter of cosmic shimmer mist,
then drew a rough double circle around a plate. I also ran a black line around the edge of the white cardstock.
Some ribbon mesh roses were added in two places along with some butterflies cut with a new Memory Box die set.
I'd had this spray of diamante for ages and decided to cut into two and add to the side.
The photostrip was created with the same app on my iphone, I love the way you can add existing photos to it aswell as create new ones.
A close-up below of the "bubbles" - bit blurry sorry :(
I know there are various ways to spell Miaow but I like this one the best.
Thanks to PageMaps for yet another month of fantastic images for inspiration.
