Cause Doodle Ribbon

Hello folks.  We have another challenge at One Stitch At A Time so how about popping over to see all the fabulous creations by the design team.  The prize this month is an awesome digi pack containing several images and a paper pack too - how cool is that.

Challenge #247

Theme 'Think Pink' 

Hi folks, hope you are having a good day :) :) For my DT creation this fortnight I have the change to work with an artist I love :) CraftyGirl Creations.  CraftyGirls artwork always reminds me of my youth somehow, I think it is all the swirls and doodles that appear in her artwork :)  Anyway, this time I am using the image Cause Ribbon Doodle which is perfect for out Think Pink challenge.

I have made simple card as I really wanted the image to be the star of the show.  For the lacy edges I used Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders 1, a die I recently bought and I suspect if going to be a favourite :)  For the inside and middle layer of the card I used some heart pink paper I have had for ages and ages.  The two white layers are white linen card and the top layer is also white linen card covered with lace and finished off with three pink pearl brads.  The text was cut using Die'sire - Thinking Of You.

I printed the ribbon image and coloured it with Faber Castell Polychromos. Next was fussy cutting the image and mounting on white card. This was then cut slightly larger than the image. The next layer is the same heart paper I have used throughout and mounted on card before cutting.  Finally the bottom layer is white card again. The top two layers were glued together and the foam tape was used between each of the other layers so I have lots of height on the card.  To finish off the image I went over the black swirls with a white pen then added Liquid Pearls to each of the leaves and the intersections on the lattice section.
For the inside of the cut I used Spellbinders - Diamond Essence.
