A combination of challenges this week. Firstly with the colour scheme from The Play Date Cafe #144 - gorgeous summery pink, orange and yellow. Here is their inspiration picture...
And secondly, a sketch challenge brought to you by Stampotique Designers Challenge, SDC60, and here it is...
And finally, here is my card......
I began with a piece of artist canvas which I sprayed with Dylusions Ink Sprays - yum!
I stamped the flower numerous times, and then slowly stitched around the image lines with my sewing machine. With the canvas being quite thick, this resulted in giving the flowers some depth. I highlighted this with some watered down white paint around the flower tips, and shaded the centres with a little black Derwent Inktense Pencil. Then I masked the flowers and stamped the French Text image repeatedly.
To finish the smaller top section I used a stencil and dry brushed white paint through it. I added a little ribbon and ric rac, and finally, I crocheted a black flower to really set off those beautiful colours in the canvas.
This was so much fun! I do hope that you'll give one or both of these challenges a go! Thanks for stopping by :)
