Well...I got up this morning and had a look at Mo's challenge blog and discovered that this week's challenge was 'white on white'.
The image can be coloured but the background and the embellishments must be predominantly white.
So... I thought this might be a bit tricky at first but then the telephone rang and it was my Aunty Rosanne. For those of you that know my family or know of my family... we never talk for five minutes and hang up! It's ALWAYS an hour long conversation. Which is great, because I love talking to my Aunty RoRo, she's always out when she calls, and so usually ends up having a conversation with me and most of London too while she's at it.
Today she was shopping for Disaronno and discussing tiger bread (which made me VERY hungry). Anyway, the conversation flowed and while that did, so did my creativity. I made this card the whole time I was on the phone to her. I literally finished it... as we say our goodbyes! One hour and twenty minutes!!!
Here is what I did:
The image used is 'Angelica's Balloons' by Mo at Digital Pencil, which I printed off twice (main image and for decoupaging the balloons). First of all I took some white embossed DP and placed it onto the top of the easel card. Then I cut another piece to fit the base and cut out a large circle using my nestabilities and my Big Shot. I stuck these down. I then used the same scalloped cirle to cut around my image, which I coloured with me ProMarker pens: Blush, Ivory, Blossom, Pastel Pink, Tan and Sandstone. I stuck this down to the front of the easel and added 1mm adhesive pearls. I printed off another image and just cut out the balloons, which I coloured and decoupaged over the first image with foam adhesive pads (so that they were 'out of the circle').
I then added some ribbon, some flowers (using my new hot glue gun) and... here is the finished card. Hope Mo likes it, but hope you do too?
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs, Fae xxx
