I have found a little time this week to make a card. This one came about whilst looking at challenges over the weekend and I decided to combine red, black and off white as a colour combo from Colour Create with an easel card from Lili of the Valley and Stamp Something's Girly theme, but I was also inspired by Creative Inspirations challenge of lace, pins and pearls. So here it is -
The backing paper is a decopatch tissue sheet and chosen because of the lacy design and the colours. The image is from a set given to me by my sister and I used my Promarkers to colour it. The other embellishments are from my ever growing collection of bits and pieces. I decided to make it for my Mum for Mother's Day. Whilst she was in hospital she was interested in what I have been doing and enjoyed me showing her my creations. I hope she likes this one too.
It's quite difficult to get the lighting correct with the silver doyley, but I think it gives the overall effect.
I found the pin in my needlework box and added pearl beads to it and pinned it with a black lace bow. The small text rose I made myself, the other flowers have been put together using shapes from my flower box. Of course I have used my favourite technique of the moment which is adding sparkle round the edges of the mounts and onto the flower petals, I also used Cosmic Shimmer sprays to distress them a bit more.
