Hello all, hope you are having a good day. I am, so excited as my Spring collection Promarkers and a couple of blender pens along with some fine nibs have just arrived after a very long journey from the UK to Saudi - hurray. Can't wait to play with them - thank you big sister for sorting the order and posting them to me - you are a STAR xx
OK, onto today's post. I have not coloured a non caucasian digi before so this is a first for me. Have you noticed how most of us colour in caucasian colours? I must say I had a lot of fun with this personal challenge of mine and it is certainly something I will be doing again :). To make the card I also tried something new for me, to use a die to make a cut-out design. I would normally do this with my electronic cutter but today it was time for the Cherry Lynn flourish die to be used. I kept the cut out sections and used them along with a couple more I made in a darker pink to embellish the card. Instead of having just the cutout design showing I lined the inside of the the front of the card with brown mulberry paper, it looks so delicate in real life with the light shining through so you can see the heavier fibers in the paper but alas I didn't capture the effect with the camera. I printed the digi and cut it out using X-Cut scallop circles and used the same die to cut the brown mount underneath. Next I used Cherry Lynn Mini butterflies and cut them out in the two shades of pink for the tops and brown for the shadow layer. To finish the card off I added a large pink organza bow, a spray of flowers and Liquid Pearls plus another smaller pink organza bow.
