I have made a card for 2 challenges....1 is Sir Stamp A Lot whose challenge is Lazy Hazy Days of Summer. Well I am originally from Stoke-On-Trent, I was born & bred there but my dad was originally from Northumberland so when my parents divorced & my dad remarried they decided to make a fresh start up in Northumberland to cut a long story short me & my family moved up to & for the last 10 years have lived by the sea. So my idea of summer is lovely warm sun with a gentle cool sea breeze..........hence the colours I've used on my card below......
I love this Tilda I think she is adorable, a pretty little lady who needs a pretty umbrella to stop the sun from burning her!!! The 2nd challenge is Cute Card Thursday & their challenge is School's out for Summer.....you can interpret this as cards for teachers or summer colours & images. Well to me this is summery in a different cool way.....it has been so warm & sticky this year that we have been pleading for some cooler weather, well what could be more cooler than pretty blue's with a tiny hint of warm red....
Here is a close-up of Tilda coloured with those Prisma pencils......
I'm not quite sure if you can see but there is stickle glitter around the edge of her pretty umbrella, she also has a bit of sprinkling of glitter over her but it was hard to catch this in the camera.
The ingredients for this card are papers are from K&Co, its from their Big Stack of 360 sheets... there are SOOOO many gorgeous papers in the pack that I am ALWAYS spoilt for choice. The flowers & butterfly I got from Ebay as to the Broderie Anglaise. The sentiment was from a craft shop about 18 months ago when I 1st tried card making. I distress the card with Tumbled Glass distress ink before adding any papers, I also did the same with every layer that went underneath K&Co paper. I wanted to keep it summery but a bit lady like too as I think Tilda deserves that on this image......she looks so pretty dont you think????
I think thats it, I hope you like this card & if any1 has any tips about colouring with different mediums I really am all ears....I will take any advice I can get.
