Good Afternoon Everyone and Happy Friday! I've been super busy the past few days creating cards and the days have simply flown by me. One day it was Tuesday and the next moment Friday is staring me in the face! While in my creative frenzy, I made a card that qualifies for several different challenges based off of this awesome sketch by Creative Belli.
My image is a free Wild Flower Patch Kids digi download and her name is Alice. Jenn Shults, the owner of Wild Flower Patch Kids, occasionally gives away free digi images that you can use to support the Wild Flower Patch Kids Challenges.
Initially I had three homemade flowers ( the ribbons are recycled from my disaster pile)* but my card looked a little crowded and I removed one of them. As an afterthought, I should have taken off an additional flower because my card looks a little odd with only two flowers. My design paper is by My Minds Eye (Mary Mary Collection) and to me this paper is gorgeous and so perfect for spring cards. The papers are double sided, the texture is nice and the patterns compliment each other beautifully!
My image (Alice) is colored in with Copic Markers and I airbrushed the background area. One of my favorite techniques for adding dimension is to paper pierce some or all of my design paper. My design paper has a pretty spring pattern with flecks of pretty green and polka dots. I also embellished my image by applying glitter to the apron and socks.
