Pearls, Poppies and Lace - August CCC Digi Challenge


Challenge #6 from the CCC Digi Challenge is
a Digital image with Pearls and Lace.

Our sponsor this challenge is Aurora wings.

The prize for the lucky winner of this challenge is $10.00 USD worth
of digital stamps of their choice from Aurora Wings.

 I have used her delightful poppy image for my card.

I coloured it with prisma pencils and blended with baby oil, then fussy cut it.

After adding the microbeads in the centre of the poppies, I mounted it with foam dots over an embossed panel - Birdsong by Cuttlebug/Provocraft

To add some interest to the embossed panel, I sanded the embossing, which changed the colour very slightly as it removed the glazed surface.

After attaching the pearls and lace, I mounted the feature panel over a white card base which I had sponged the edges of in Memento Rocket Red ink.

Thank you for visiting.  Any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated
May your day be blessed

I haven't come across this company of digi stamps but the poppy image is beautiful. The accent beads are perfect for the centres, and the pearls add a lovely touch to the embossed background. A great card. Kate x

Gorgeous card right down to every last detail, especially the addition of pearls and lace to accentuate the stunning poppies! Baby oil to blend your prismacolours? How cool is that! I must give it a try, as I can't find gamsol anywhere. Thank you for sharing at ATSM!
