A very proud day today :). I entered the Sheepski Designs FB challenge in January and was chosen to be their guest designer for the Feb/March challenge. Thank you so much to the DT and Andrea of Sheepski Designs for this honour.
The theme for the FB challenge is to used ribbon or a bow and I chose to use the image 'Hello' for my creation.
After printing the image and computer generated sentiment I then used a large oval die to cut the image layer. Next I masked the image and placed the oval onto my plain backing paper and set to with Distress Inks to create the background. Once the base layer of ink was down I then used a wet one and a stencil to created the washed out areas then lightly went over with some gold from my stamp pad before removing the stencil. The image was then unmasked and coloured with Copics and enhanced with Prismacolour Pencils. To finish off once the layers were assembled I cut some ribbon diagonally on both side edges and twisted it to resemble seaweed, a couple of light green strips of ribbon which were just twisted were added to the group and finally some pearls. Lastly I made a small bow and added three more pearls at the top right just for a bit of balance.
