This week's challenge is "New Beginnings" - New baby, new stash etc and this week's spotlight is on Floppe Latte. Please check out gorgeous papers and images.
For this project I have used a digi stamp from the Stitchy Bear and I did it Creations Crafting Boutique. The image is one of the Barbara Jensen range of stamps called "Up Yours" which I thought would work well as New beginnings.
I coloured this image with copics and polychromos by Faber Castell which I received today so this is my first time of using them - no time to practice. I have been so sluggish and tired over Christmas I've just not wanted to do anything! - hence I'm playing catch up with the DT posts.
The backing papers were a mixture of allsorts, the main pattern background was from a CD Rom, the Acetate flourish/flower background was from a set I bought from QVC and the plain paperstock I used to create the mats was from a multi buy from Create and Craft.
I cut some flourishes (from some black stock my Husband got me from WHSmiths), using Magnolia and Marianne dies which I thought would pick out the flourishes from the Acetate. I used Marianne dies to cut the flowers taking inspirations again from the Acetate.
The leaves were cut from a hand punch and I used a gold pen to create the veins in the leaves again to reflect the leaves on the Acetate.
Finally a few pearls were added for the finishing touches.
