I stamped my image in black and coloured it using my promarkers. I then cut her into an oval and edged her with pink grapefruit ink. I then cut a yellow backing oval for the image which I edged with red ink. To make the backing paper for my card I used a new technique I picked up. I embossed a piece of white card with a Creative Expressions Flowers Mask and used the Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink to colour the card. I then embossed the card with clear embossing powder and heated it from the back to give a smoother finish; while the embossing powder was still soft I brushed peach melba mica powder onto the backing and re-heated it. I am very impressed with the way it looks. I edged this with red ink and backed it with orange paper. I attached orange flowery ribbon across the top and lefthand side of the card and used a hat embellishment on the crossover. I built up flowers to embellish the card and from the two top ones I attached flower and butterfly metal charms with ribbon so they hang out the bottom. To finish, I stamped one of my new Alleyway sentiments 'Life is beautiful' with a speech bubble (which I won as a prize off a different card) and inked this up with red yellow and pink grapefruit.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: -
