SPS - Fairy 11

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps and I have chosen to work with the beautiful image Fairy 11 by one of our new artists, Amy Brown which is available from the Sweet Pea Store.

 To begin with I thought I would try something new and printed the image onto design paper, a bit tricky getting it to print in the lightest part of the paper so as to make colouring easiest.  I decided to use Faber Castle Polychrosmos pencils to colour with which are oil base as I wanted a lighter level of colouring and they work wonderfully on all sorts of different paper types too.
Using the border edge on the paper I then backed my base card.  Some dark wine card was used for the scalloped mount.  Gold flower chain was added to one side of the border and I then cut three single sections and used these to embellish the image.  To finish off gold Liquid Pearls were placed in the scallops of the wine mount.  A very simple card and I did plan to add flowers but this card was a case of less is better I think.
