Well in true British Bank Holiday tradition the weather has been well and truly dismal, but right now we have blue skies and the sun is shining.
Today I've used the freebie from Saturated Canary last week, Ava. I've completely fallen in love with this image. I wasn't sure where I was going with this card when I started. I started back-to-front, by colouring the image first. Normally I pick my paper first and try to colour co-ordinate to that. Ava's been coloured with copics. I've used Josephine papers downloaded from Raspberry Road. I dotted some Viva Decor pearl pen in ice white around and added some Tumbled Glass DI around the edges. I made an easel card and used a Martha Steward border punch. The lace and ribbon were picked up at the Sincerely Yours craft show at Biggin Hill the other week. I don't know who makes them, sorry! The clouds and flourish are both Memory Box dies. The balloon has had a little glossy accent added. The flowers are Wild Orchid with a little crystal stickles. I really like how this turned out, hope you do too.
I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of your long weekend. oxo
