SWEETPEA DT INSPIRATION

Today is my Youngest Brother's Wedding but due to ill health I'm not able to make it.  To stop me dwelling on what I am missing I have tried to immerse myself in making this card for Sweetpea.  I have one image almost finished but decided to make a card from scratch so I stamped out a couple of images I fancied working with.  This was one of them and the one I decided to use first.




This stamp is from the Artist Conie Fong and is called SALLY WITH SNOWBALL and is available here.  




This time I chose the papers before colouring - tones of Purple.  After colouring I couldn't decide whether to use glitter or some other bits and pieces to enhance the fur on the little girl's clothes.  Mica won the battle over glitter but in my eagerness I managed to flatten the effect but hopefully it still works!






Techniques:

Medium:    Copics, Sukura glitter pen Silver and Stardust, Mica flakes, PVA glue, glammour        
                   dust glitter
Papers:      Papermania capsule collection, Black cardstock, White Cardstock


Dies used:
Marianne Christmas tree and border, Magnolia snowflake and Mistletoe, Die-namics spiral flower, Memory Box snowflake border and tulips, Frame die

Embellishments:
Various flowers, pearl, various clear gems

Best wishes,
