SPS - Pink Peony

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase an image from Sweet Pea Stamps for our Artist Week where the whole team are using images by Ching Chou-Kuik.  I have chosen to work with the image Pink Peony

I started off by colouring the image with Promarkers.  Once coloured I fuzzy cut the image, not an easy image to fussy cut with the strands of hair but I did not want any white paper on this card.

Promarkers used

I added Liquid Pearls to the fan and parts of the clothing.
Next I covered my card base with some gorgeous paper I bought about 4 years ago (as it is a favourite  I don't use it often <g>).  I recently bought a beautiful die - Joanna Sheen - Large Filigree Fan which I thought would be perfect for this card.  I cut the die 4 times to make the fan shape using the same cream card I used for my card blank.  Two ideas in my head, either cut the corner away as I have shown here or remove the whole section behind the fan.
After some thought I decided on my second thought and removed all the card blank area from behind the fan.
Onto the tag.  For this I used a Just Right stamp which I stamped in green and then used clear embossing powder.  This was cut out using a Spellbinder circle die.  Next I cut some of my beautiful paper in a slightly larger Spellbinder circle die and air brushed it with my Peony Rose Promarker. The final die used for the background is from Sizzix called For The Record 2
Finally I airbrushed some white organza flowers and also a piece of organza ribbon.
 Finally I assembled the card.  Inside view
