Hope you're all ok and that you're not having too hard a time with the weather. Bit windy here but the sun's out.
This card features Heather Valentins' gorgeous Adelaide - this time in blue as opposed to the pink one on my last card and on my blog skin and banner. The pink one is available now as a pre coloured digi over at the Lacy Sunshine store but the blue one's not available as yet.
Hair: Caramel, Sandstone and Satin.
Skin: Copics E00, E11 and E21
Eyes (and blue): Marine, Turquoise and Cool Aqua.
Lips: Antique Pink and Baby Pink.
Shading on White: Cool Grey 1and Blender.
Shadow on ground: Putty.
I have taken the png of Adelaide into my MCS software and placed the digi onto a background from the MCS Victorian Follies CD, then I've added a drop shadow around the image to make her stand out from the background. Then I've printed it off and coloured the digi image as above.
The other backing papers are the same background but with the opacity taken lower so they are more faded.
The base is just a 6 x 6 (approx) square card with the front creased and folded down the centre to form an easel base.
All the layers have been matted onto blue metallic textured cardstock and cut using Cheery Lynn's Reflection Boutique Mega squares with mini pearl edges. Bit fiddly to use and get right but it becomes easier with practice.
The flowers are the same cardstock cut using Cheery Lynn's Large and Medium Rose dies which have been kept together with gold brads from my stash.
The stopper is cut from the same card using the Cheery Lynn die as in the matting layers.
The sentiment reads 'Happy Hauntings and Pleasant Dreams' and is a quote by Peter James. Don't tell him, but I don't have a clue who he is! Sssshhhhh!
You can see from the picture how I've laid the card out so no explanation needed there.
To finish off I've added some lovely blue faux gems...and voila...done and dusted!
I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
Take care everyone and happy crafting!
