Ooo-er, that title was a bit of a gobfull wasn't it?? LOL
This week's new theme over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge is:
So I pulled out the stoppers and went a bit mad. I have been seeing these 'triple easels' going about in blogland, and wanted to give it a stab. Didn't quite turn out right though. I wanted all three parts to fold on top of each other so nothing would show under the top layer, but I'm blowed if I could figure out how to work that bit right. Ah well, whatever!
I have used three of my Fairy images for this card, Endless Love, with its Dragon, Steampunk Fairy and Wistful Fairy. These have all been printed out as they come, with no added colouring.
Went a bit gothic with this project too - no surprise there, as that is my favourite style!! So there is plenty of black card here! And of course I just had to team it up with my favourite colour, purple - with some silver thrown in for good measure (and blingy highlights)
I haven't gone overboard with the embellies though, wanted a dramatic look without too much froo-froo getting in the way. I settled for a few little punched flowers with pearly centres, some fake brad heads, and some silver mirri corners cut with my new shapeabilites ornaments set (fleur-de-lys)
I also have another new set (thanks to Vicky) which I was desperate to get hold of. Finally found one on ebay for a reasonable price, and it turned up on Wednesday. I have used it here too, its the square frame behind the images (fleur-de-lys again!) in black card with silver rub-on for highlighting, and purple behind. These image panels are raised from the backing layers, and the images are also decoupaged with foam pads, then I stickled them for some bling, not that you can see the stickles in these photos.
I have used Martha Stewart corner punches for the base cards (loops) and the mirri/purple layers (iron railings) I also used some purple peony ink for the purple card edges too, and behind the images on the white backgrounds, just to help the images stand out some more.
Heck - almost lunchtime already! That'll teach me to go clothes shopping before posting this!
Gotta get this linked into a few other challenges before getting the son's lunch. He has lunch at home instead of at school, he finds it better as he doesn't get 'bullied' when he isn't there! And this school has an 'anti-bullying policy' - yeah, right - like anyone takes a bit of notice. Flipping place! That's what comes of not having any male teachers or any form of discipline anymore. Oooooooo - don't get me started on that one!!
