Shelly's & Create4fun
One card 2 challenges.
This is a first time challenge for me at Shelly's images. While on holiday last month I had the good fortune to win a digital image from Shelly. This is not the one that I chose, but loved this image and decided to get it. So I thought it would make a good birthday card.
Creat4fun require a digital image to be used.
The challenge on Shelly's blog was to use blue, sewing, material(ribbon) or buttons and all based on the fact that Shelley's Mom is having a birthday this month and loves to use all these elements. So this is what I came up with.
Card: white and matted DP printed from a download offered byJak. Pop over and visit her. She has wonderful cards and offers free downloads of beautiful papers on a regular basis. I cut out an oval with a Nellie Snellen multiframe die and put my image into that,
Image: Shelly's "mayflowers". I printed this image twice. Once on white card, then on the DP and cut out the umbrella pieced this onto the original image. I coloured the flowers with a combination of distress inks, twinling H20's, watercolour pencils and added a bit of Flower Soft to fill in the gaps.
Sentiment: I stamped this onto the DP and again cut with my Nellie Snellen die, threaded ribbon through,
Finished it off with 2 layers of ribbon and small flower buttons, cutting off the shanks.
I also decorated the inside with the DP. Here the lovely design is more visible, stamped a message onto that.
Halfway through the week already. See you all soon.
