Whiff of Joy Challenge GDT Card 2 - Pink and Brown
I really had to rack my brains on this as I don't own any pink and brown papers. Gosh I hope this means I can convince my wonderful husband I need more paper! Just need to find the nearest paper mill to me as my normal card stock for backing is very very low!
The papers I used was a silk 12x12 I had in my stash for ages and matched it with the once upon a time mat stack from DCWV. I tried to create the image that Melinda was reading a fairy tale hence the knight behind her and the written text. I madly paper pierced it then handsewed all the elements in silver thread to try and give it the feel you get from reading an old handstitched book. I then added the roses which had been glittermisted. In all it took hours and hours to create so I will be keeping it for a special friends birthday I think.
I hope you like it.
