I am honoured to have the Guest Designer position over at Through The Craftroom Door this week.
I printed out two copies of the image, and fully coloured one, and partially coloured the other using Faber-Castell Polychromo pencils. The background on the fully coloured image was lightly coloured with a blue pencil using the side of the lead, rather than the tip.
I trimmed out the elements I had coloured on the partially coloured image, shaped them using a ball stylus on a mouse pad, and glued them over the full images, giving just a hint of dimension.
I finished the feature panel by applying several coats of clear Wink of Stella, unfortunately the camera did not pick up the sparkle.
The sentiment, from Kiwistamping, a local (N.Z.) business, was embossed in gold in the bottom right corner of the card base, I then added trimmed down doily (I have had these over 10 years, I think they are meant for a small plate!) and adhered the feature panel over that
A few Kaisercraft flatback pearls were the finishing touch.

Hopefully I will be able to get around and visit soon - it is so hot here that I am gardening first thing in the mornings, and staying inside the rest of the day!!
