Anyway, enough moaning - let me show what I made last night.
It's only the second easel card I've made - I don't think I showed the first one as it was for my husband and I wasn't that impressed with it! They're not easy to photograph though are they?
Anyway, back to this one - this card is going to be for someone special. The image is from Di's Digi Downloads, called Party Time, and I've coloured her with Promarkers and Sakura Stardust pens. The shapes have been cut with a Nellie Snellen die. The papers are from a Kate Knight pad. The ribbon was from a gift box my Mum received sometime ago, so I've done a bit of recycling here. And I made the flowers - they are just punched from layers of tissue paper, with some pearl brads through the centre, and then I've curled them a bit by pulling the petals gently between my fingers (hope you understand what I mean!). And I've added some pearly heart shaped ribbon sliders, and used diamond stickles around the image mat. I haven't decided what sentiment to use yet, so that white panel has not been stuck down yet and I will stickle the edge of it when it is finished.
OOwwwwwww! I've just had a bout of sneezing and pulled a muscle in my neck! Actually, I'm starting to feel really rotten :(
And here's a picture which shows the image better I hope - doesn't show the sparkle though! - the crown and beads are quite glittery IRL.
Oh, I forgot to explain my post title - I followed this week's sketch on Fridays Sketchers, but was too late to enter the challenge - flip!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Easel Card
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Sparkle and Shine (lots of sparkle on the image from the Sakura Stardust pens, the stickles, pearly brads and pearly ribbon sliders)
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Punch It Out (punched flowers)
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Anything Goes
I'm gonna go now - I need to listen to my son reading!
Love, Andrea xx
