Friday Sketchers

I am so proud of this card. I spent all last night on it to get it perfect as the prize this week is lace and wonderful accessories which are absolutely gorgeous. The image is WOJ Melinda, which was a RAK of Jane (I really need to buy these the more I use them the more I adore them). I have watercoloured her invery slowly a layer of colour at a time to ensure the colours did not bleed. I have used glitter glue on her wings instead of colour to give an angel like effect to them. I have mounted her up using decoupage pads onto an oval I have cut out using my friskars. I have then put the oval through my clutterbug using the birds and swirls folder. I have then used lavender waterpaint to distress the outside of it to blend with the papers. The papers are Basic Grey, which have been fauxed stitched to blend them. The flowers are prima and match the papers perectly.

I am so chuffed with this card that I plan to keep it for myself rather than send it to anyone.

image - WOJ melinda with heart
papers - basic grey - sultry
flowers - prima

gems - stash
