It`s monday and we`re doing the ususal deets over at WhoopsiDaisy. New challenge that is, lol. The theme set is:
NOT A SQUARE CARD
For my creation this time i have made a circle card with lots of layers. I have used an image from sheet #431. I think she is soooo adorable.
Colours i have used:
Skin: Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Sunkissed pink, Tan
Hair: Cocoa, Mustard, Buttercup
Dress: Celestial blue (FM), Powder blue, Glacier blue (FM)
Wings: Lime twist, Lime zest, Aniseed (FM)
Flowers/grass: Coral, Pink mittens, Forest green, Pear green, Chartreusse (FM)
Mushroom: Tan, March hare, Satin, Shale, Burgundy, Berry red
Ground: Umber, Sandstone, Blender
Shade: Midnight blue, Twilight sky, Denim blue, April shower, Blender.
The big flower is from Prima, The Chrysanthemums and rosebuds are from Kort & Godt. Pearls and the last little flower is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also made a little glasspebble using a little image from a Graphic 45 piece of scrap paper. You can barely see it in the bottom of the flower cluster. Papers i have used are the new Vintage spring basics by maja design.
I have also used a freebie sentiment from Kristin Langnes, available here.
Not too long ago i saw this tutorial on how to make extra texture to your paint. There was this fabulous lady that had this tutorial but i really don`t remember her name right now. If anyone know who i`m talking about please let me know so i can give her credit. Well...anyway, she put some sand in her acrylic paint to make some extra texture. I had to give this a try and you can see it around the edges and on the keyhole and the butterflies. The only difference i used gesso instead of acrylic paint. I had so much fun and i just looove how it turned out.
Well, that`s it. Just stay tuned course i`ll soon be back with a post on the new challenge at Marianne`s Design Divas. In the meantime you can allways pop over to WhoopsiDaisy challengeblog and join in on the fun. Thanks for visiting!
I`ll be back! :-)
