OSAAT CHALLENGE #45


 
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.

Beautiful. The colouring gives a very realistic effect and the card is beautifully finished.

Don't know if you're short comments on this - I've been trying all afternoon and keep getting the page half-loading then going to a blank page with Google Translate in the top corner. I've had to switch browsers to get the page to load properly. (I was using Firefox before.)
