Bbbrrrr. It's gone a bit colder up here in north east Scotland. I wish spring would arrive properly and not keep turning back into winter. It's no wonder we've all got colds and flu's!
Well, these fortnights seem to come around faster and faster.
Today being Friday sees the start of the next theme at the
and this time we are after 'Load of Layers'.
You know I love to layer up my images anyway, so it was a simple theme for me to choose this time. I wanted to keep things easy for you all, lol.
I have used my 'Just Purr-fect' image for this card
I followed a sketch for my layout. Got it a bit wrong though, as I forgot to include a wee loopy strip going diagonally underneath the paper. Hope it still counts. . .
The main cardstock is a bog standard white that I inked around the edges of with some lilac ink. Papers are off the compy, and edged with a purple ink.
The big bow is hand tied. I got this lovely organza ribbon from my local craft shop. The charm is one from a selection I got at a crafty weekend last year, and is attached to the bow using an offcut of chain from a sale. I also added some big pearls and some lilac brads.
The big frame is a framabilities die cut from lilac textured card, edged with purple ink, and lilac stickles has been added round the image. This image was coloured with the usual watercolour pencils, then scanned and printed several times for my layers. These were 'popped' up using foam pads. The flowers are made using punches and spare glittery lilac card from my bits box along with some more of the textured stuff I used for the frame. Then some lilac tiny gems for their centres. Here is a closeup of the image:
And last but not least, a little view of all the layers:
Phew, hope you are still with me??
Off to take the wee D to the hairdressers in a bit for a little trim. Could have done it myself but she needs it thinned out properly and I don't know how to do that. Hoping to get outside later and raise my little bird feeding station I made the other day, but not sure what the weather is going to do. Supposed to be wintery showers, but at the mo the sun is out. Fingers crossed it stays that way!
Catch ya later folks!!
