I have Blog Candy in the post above.
Ends Friday 19th.
Now this card that I'm about to show you today
is a bit of an odd ball because as I was making it
I kept thinking what if I do this, what if I just add
and what if I tweak it a bit here and there,
so much so that the card is nothing like I had
planned out in my head.
I am pleased to say though that I like it very much.
Time for another challenge over at
Crafting From The Heart
The sponsor for this week
I have chosen to work with a digi called
So I started with the premise that I would
colour the image with my Papermania
water colour pencils which I did.
Then I had the notion to colour up an identical image
and place one on top of another.
Whilst colouring up the second image I sort of thought
what if I put one behind a sheet of vellum to mute it down a bit.
It was only at this point I thought I had better go and sort through
my pink stash of papers for a paper to go with the image that
I had already coloured twice!!
Second Phew as I found this freebie paper
by Sally Moret 2012 and cardstock in pink and green
that matched perfectly.
Next up I decided to cut a frame using
Sizzix Scallop rectangle die 657905
which was actually a tad smaller than my image.?
Not to worry I thought.
Next bright idea was to layer the design paper
on a green base then one of the images,
the vellum ,the die cut scallop and put the second image
over the top scrunching the flowers and leaves slightly to just
overhang the frame work.
By this time I'm on a roll so added stickles in Diamond and Holly
to the top roses and leaves.
The rose charm happened to be on my desk so had to get used as well.
I die cut a small tag from the pink card and vellum and used
a silver sticker for the sentiment at which point
I thought enough is enough.!!!!!
You can just see in this close up the first rose image
covered with vellum which is behind the scalloped frame.
