I decided to do another card for The Flower Challenge Blog as I really enjoy colouring with purple.
This stunning looking bloom was drawn by Emily Midgett and she released some images in limited edition as a one off item and I was luckily able to purchase a copy for both copic and watercolouring in a small number of images. I will share others later. Emily is an amazing floral artist and designs for quite a few different companies and is also very busy on Design Teams of quite a few companies as well. She is also the mother of two sets of twins the latest born last year and I am totally blown away by this amazing young woman.
I have coloured using my RV colours. Once I was happy with the colouring I added Wink of Stella to the heavier coloured areas of the flowers. It was a new brush so there are a couple of areas I was a bit heavy handed but I can brush off the excess so I'm not worried.
Here you can see the sparkle. I placed the image in a double stitched frame of a purple card base.
I finished it off with some purple gems and these beautiful delicate die cut "birthday wishes'
I think I'll add this over on The Flower Challenge Blog so I can share it more.
And after a couple of years missing from Challenges I think I will also join Darnell at NBUS card challenge for March as the die cut sentiments come from a never before used die set from The Ton.
This die set that has quite a few die cut words (all ones you use regularly) and also the outline to add behind if you want is just brilliant. I went mad and cut out lots of them, they all go through the machine at once as its a single plate for the words and another for the outline. I did them in white and black and lots of mirror card. the only down side I found was that I did need to use a metal shim to get a good cut and I did put each through twice to guarantee a clean cut. There are also extra ...... yes dots , we all manage to loose those dots so these are extras, perfect.
Thank you so much for dropping by I hope to see you again soon.
