So do I have your attention with the title? I find I have to be careful with titles or the spammers have a ball...
My first card today uses an image that I can relate well to - a lass with her nose in a book - a constant for me when I was young.
This image is being released this week by McMahon Vintage under the title of Story Time. I coloured the image with chalks, a soft mauve, although the camera shows it as blue, and pink.
The image was then mounted on a soft lime green card, which picked up one of the colours from the Prima Fairy Flora design paper.
This was mounted on a doily cut (with a newly purchased die at a local Craft Fair last week) from a very pale mauve card stock.
The purple chiffon ribbon was some from my stash, and threaded through a buckle that adheres to the card.
The tassel I made from four shades of purple embroidery floss, which was then 'combed' with a needle to separate the strands to give a softer appearance.
The wee butterfly was another recent purchase.
The second release this week is also from McMahon Vintage and is titled Mary Mary.
Again the image is coloured with chalks, with orange being the predominant colour used, and then mounted on a layer of soft orange card.
The base is a gentle lime green with a very subtle sparkle in it. I stamped it with an Hero Arts stamp, Ivy Leaves, using Memento Cottage Ivy Ink.
Where the images crossed, I placed a flower made with two white paper flowers wiped over a Whisper Orange ink pad, and then a Prima Fairy Rose mounted in the centre of those.
The card was finished with some piercing in the top corner.
Thanks for calling by - May your day be blessed.
