Crafty Cardmakers. It was really different to do as I have never worked to a sketch before but it did set my mind thinking! Here are a few close up shots, but the lovely background paper still doesn't show well. Sorry I'm an awful photograper!!
I coloured the edges of a white 5x5 square card using Vintage Photo distress ink and chose some Papermania background paper from their Portobello Road collection. To tone this down I used Scattered Straw distress ink around the edges. Velet ribbon and striped coffee and cream ribbon were then attached as per the sketch.
I stamped the lady.. B Line Stamp twice onto cream card. One image was used as a mask over the face and then another B Line background stamp was stamped over the image and then removed.
The hat and roses were coloured using the two distress inks and water for a subtle feel.
The message was stamped in Vintage Photo and distressed with Scattered Straw, mounted on a scrap of brown card. This was added as shown.
Final touches were to add her necklace and flower embellishments. Hope you like the finished project.....really enjoyed taking up the challenge!
