Good morning everyone, it is still cold here in Yorkshire. I do wonder if Summer is ever going to come lol!!
I have just finished a card for one of my neighbours, who wanted a card for her great-granddaughters Christening . So I decided to do an easel card this is my very first attempt..I wanted it really girly and I am really pleased with the way it has turned out..It's took me ages but in real life it is quiet lovely. Really pants photo's just couldn't get a decent shot, don't know what I'm doing wrong...anyway this one was taken outside unfortunatly you can't see the gorgeous paper it is so sparkly all my flowers and image have stickles stardust and the lace around her little dress and socks are also really sparkly.
The image is sooo cute, you feel like you want to whisk her up and give her a big cuddle lol!! it's by Mo Manning and she's called "Walker". I'm really loving Mo's images at the moment and have bought quiet a few...can't help myself lol!! She was such a pleasure to colour, and I used my new stock of paper from Germany that Steve and Nicole brought me, it's only cheap index paper but works really well with the prismas, I'm getting to grips with colours, trying different combinations. The colouring is much deeper, than what the photo shows though.
The first photo is taken outside and is more true to colours, but I just couldn't capture the sparkly bits lol!! I got the idea for the doo hickey die down the sides from Iulia's blog, I really do love it and her card looked stunning, please take a visit to her blog as she makes the most amazing cards!!
The papers are a new pad from Forever Friends called New Arrival, they really are lovely! The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from Bunny Zoe's and the lace is from my local market. My little cross charm I put tiny pink adhesive stones in as it is shaped like little hearts..really sweet. I think I went overboard on the buttons lol!! I wanted to keep the section at the bottom quiet simple so as not to distract from the top, so only put a few flowers around the sentiment, which is computer generated.
I do have a bit of a photo overload...sorry:)
Taken Outside - colours are more true
Taken inside - the colours look salmon instead of pink
This is the a picture of the card laid straight
