Evening everyone from a cold, wet, windy antipodean island, thunderstorms snow (but not here, thankfully) and all!!
Last week I was asked to make a card for a family who have recently had twin daughters.
I started with an image from May Brit's blog (here) - she draws and shares some beautiful images. I took the baby bear image, copied it and flipped it to give the impression of twins. I coloured them with chalks, the one that the camera shows as blue is actually a mauve.
I added some mauve lace and pink and mauve rhinestones, and sponged the edge of the image with plum ink.
I mounted it on a lemon card that I had randomly stamped pink butterflies on - the butterfly image is from The Crafts Meow Friend of Mine stamps set.
After mounting the main image I ran a glitter pink pigment pen around the edge of the panel.
The sentiment (unknown origin) was stamped in Pearlescent Orchid ink, cut out using a ribbon tags die from Spellbinders Arts, and then sponged with the Plum ink and ran the pen around the inside edge of the die before removing it. (I tried to alter the colour of this image to make it more realistic, but didn't do it correctly.) The ribbon was a narrow stitched one I had on hand.
I am linking this to the following challenges;
(The Stamping Sisters In Christ challenge is based on James 2:18-19. I commend their study to you)
Thanks for visiting, and may your day be blessed.
