A Little Glitz


I am up to host the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers today. I was looking for sites a few weeks back, and kept coming upon patterns that were hand drawn which I just loved. But I could not find a site dedicated to it, so I made a Pinterest Board. 

I have a lot saved in Pinterest, so I will lead you to the boards related to the challenge, which is Paper Fashion Drawn and Wearable. The drawn are beautiful dresses, the wearable are paper dresses and I am fascinated by both.

For my card I picked this dress from Paper Fashion Drawn, and found on Pinterest here,

I followed the dress, reversing the colours, to colour my flowers, but instead of a blue and pink background I did my background using Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.

To colour I used Copic Markers, which I have listed below in the order used.

Previously I would start with the lightest Copic and work my way to the darkest. I have done a lot of reading and a lot of colouring as I was not always happy with the look and found I had to continually add darker colours. After all my playing around, I have changed my colouring from darkest to lightest, and find I am getting better colouration in doing so. 

Once I was finished the colouring I die cut the flower with the coordinating die.

I added the Squeezed Lemonade to the card base along with splatters in Wilted Violet and Midas Touch Shimmering Pen. I then styled the flowers and affixed to the base using foam squares. 

I then added Stickles in Moon Dust around bits of the card with a small palette knife. I die cut two of the sentiment words and coloured with Copics before gluing to the card.

I enjoyed making this card, probably because it is a bit of a departure for me with these different colours. But it was fun.
