CCC CHALLENGE #NEW BEGINNINGS



For this project I chose to use a Magnolia Tilda image (Bridesmaid Tilda) to reflect New Beginnings and what better than a Wedding a life-time committment.

I coloured with copics and then emphasised shadows and definition with my new prisma pencils which I am still experimenting with.  Hopefully I will get to grips with them more when a book I ordered arrives - guess you know what I will be doing and hopefully reaping the results too.

I used a spray varnish and a white smooch spritz ink over the image to give a subtle sparkle.





I did some paper piercing around the image and then mounted using plain black and silver cardstock. 

I embellished with a heart cut from a Spellbinders die, ribbon, bow, brad, flowers pearls and pins.
