Isn't the colour palette gorgeous? This combination of 'sand & sea' tones has been the challenge at the Crafty Calendar challenge this month & I teamed this with the gorgeous sketch from SSW this week for my cutie from Saturated Canary called, "Jules". Don't you think she makes a great Prom Queen too? Stood there in her 'posh frock' definitely with 'somewhere to go'...but still needing her soft toy for comfort or security.
The image was coloured with Promarkers & layered up following the design sketch with layers created using my Silhouette Cameo. The fancy oval frame immediately behind my image isn't one of my own this time but one from Krewella Kreations but I thought it just perfect for what I wanted. I gave my card base a fancy shaped outline, then having distressed the edges, went all the way around with a couple of Tim Holtz' Distress Inks. Of the smaller 'off-set' layers one was embossed with a Die-sire embossing folder full of spots to coordinate with Jules' fabby dress. This was then also distressed & inked to bring out the texture. The 'For You' sentiment, again created using my Cameo, has a layer beneath which has also been swirled with matching Distress Ink for total coordination.
|No wordy sentiment on this one but space for me to write a personal message later.|
I created yet another cut-file for the back, similar but not the same as the front, to create a fancy tent fold.card. This too has all been inked & the panel for the sentiment (to be hand-written later) still follows the basic design on the front - but a paired-down version. I bet you can all guess the colour of my hands when I had finished!!!! LOL.
Thanks for visiting!
