This is the card that I made for this week's challenge......
I used brown Bazzill CS for the base card.
The patterned papers are Papermania Retro Floral.
The image is by Penny Black "Water Lily Skiing" which I coloured with ProMarkers. Cinnamon, henna and blush (mouse), blossom and rose pink (flower petals), marsh green and olive green (leaf), cool aqua and sky blue (water), amethyst and Copic Ciao dark pink RV34 (butterfly), Copic Ciao cool gray No. 1 C-1 (outline). I also used the blender pen. I also used a clear Sakura gel pen on the butterfly to add sparkle. I decoupaged the butterfly to give a 3'd look and I cut a very thin ribbon of pink card and twirled it around a pencil for the mouse to hold seeing as I had cut up the image !
The image has been mounted onto a white oval cut with my nesties and embossed with my swirls Cuttlebug folder (I thought it may give the look of water). I did put some very pale blue chalk on the swirls but I don't think this shows in the picture. I also added some distress ink (old paper I think) to the oval.
The ribbon is from my stash. The button is a clear button which I stuck to the green and pink patterned paper with glossy accents and then cut out so I could have a matching button for the paper. I added a butterfly charm and some green cord to the button.
The flowers are white Prima flowers which I coloured with Copic Ciao dark pink RV34 and cinnamon ProMarker. The brad was white but I coloured this with the Copic dark pink pen. The leaves are from some scrap green paper and a Leone Em leaf punch.
The sentiment is from a pack of birthday sentiments Oh My Word ! Craftwork Cards.
You will also see that that pesky MS punch made an appearance again too !!!
You must take a peek at the other DT's creations - they are fabby !
Looking forward to visiting you !
