Time for me to share a creation I have made as the Guest Designer for Through The Craft Room Door. I don't do this often haha but when I do it is such fun being sent an image to work with and not having a choice really gets the brain cells working. I hope you like what I have managed to create.
The image I was given to work with is from Digi Stamps For Joy - Flamingo Pair. I coloured the image with Polychromos for the flamingos, water and bull rushes and Pan Pastels for the sky. To finish off the flamingos I added some pink feathers - such yummy texture.
A white card blank was cut and a second mount also in white which I covered with turquoise and gold lace. Next I used the Tattered Lace Antique Circle die and gold card for the lacy circles. The image was cut using Sizzix - 657939 and the gold mount below the image too. This second mount was embossed with a hessian embossing folder by Tim Holtz. Pink Liquid pearls were added around the edge of the image just to help carry a bit of the pink through the card. I wanted to add a sentiment but really was not winning so in the end I added a tag which was cut with Spellbinders Ornamental Tag 1 and Papermania Thinking of You stamp which I heat embossed with gold embossing powder.
Again to help carry the pink through the card a bit I added a pink bow. Lots of dimension going on but I wanted a bit more so I used the Memory Box Lavender die and coloured it to look like the bullrushes in the image. Finally three pink gems and there we are, all done
