Well it's here, Mo Manning's DT call and like everyone else I have my fingers and toes crossed and have asked everyone I know to cross their's for me too. Here's hoping!
As the challenge states that you can only enter one card I decided to use the image that I most wanted to use today, which as it turns out is "Shall I play for you" one of her newer images. I don't know why I chose this one in preference to many of her other stamps I love and have - all I can say is I saw it and had to have it!
For this project I used papers from my paper stash (a mixture of accummulated papers) and gold cardstock from Create and Craft.
The image as stated above is "Shall I play for you" and I coloured with copics and spica pens. I photocopied the coloured image as I decided I wanted to make a mask. I cut out the photocopy image without damaging the printed copy so that I could use as an apperature. After placing the apperature page over the image I sprayed with varnish to give just the image a glossy shine. When image was fully dry I removed protective paper and used a fine liner pen to create the border.
I used the following dies
- Marianne - Christmas tree, poinsettia and fir branch.
- Magnolia - doily label
I used embroidery thread and added beads to the Christmas. The doily label was cut using shrink plastic. I added the sentiment before shrinking. Once the shrink plastic was cool I used a gold leaf pen for the edges.
I addedd ribbon, bow, charm, petoo flower and pearls to complete.
Hope you like it, best wishes,
