The Sisterhood - Birthdays

Hiya folks!

I remembered to post this on the right day for a change! LOL. Today is the day for a new theme over at The Sisterhood of Crafters, and this week we celebrate the month of June. This could be using the colours (blue-cream and white as I have used), or the birthstone, which is Pearl, Zodiac sign (Gemini) or any other thing that comes to mind for the month of June.

My card was made using my own Delphinium digital image, available in my shop, Delicious Doodles. It was colouresd with watercolour pencils, scanned to the compy and printed 3 times to get my layers for decoupage with foam pads. My papers are from Tinker & Co, which I have also used on the punched flowers. I used some gems for the centres, and a rather huge recycled bead for the big one - only just stays where it's put it's that heavy!!

I used a sketch for my layout, from Truly Scrumptious:

The base card is some pearlescent cream card from my stash, which I also used on the flowers/leaves, along with some blue inky edges.

Wonder what you guys will come up with this week - head over to The Sisterhood if you need more inspiration - some fun cards and layouts there to see.

Just beautiful Teri, your delphinium is amazing, gorgeous colours and details. Why didn't I think of that - when doing decoupage - colouring once, scanning and printing out. I just do everything the hard way, stamp it 2/3 times, then colour it 2/3 times. Now I shall see if my memory can keep a hold of that one - thanks for that.
Thanks so much for playing along with us at TS.
