Anyways, on with my post. It's the start of another challenge, week 17, at Polka Doodles and as my blog post states, this weeks theme is Birthdays with Bling.
I used an image from the new Frederika CD, but this image and the images from the CD are also available to purchase and download individually. Remember there is free shipping worldwide, with just a minimum order of £10 (approx $16).
Isn't she beautiful, I loved colouring this image in and using my Spectrum Noirs. I used the following pens
Hair GB1, TN2, TN3
Skin FS2, TN2
Dress BT2, BT4, BT5
The papers and the sentiment are from the Cherryblossom Lane CD, and for the first time ever I used a doily, well half of one :-)
I think this image would be perfect for a graduate card too. The image and the tag were cut out using my Silhouette Cameo. I added bling to her hair and also to the sentiment.
I popped up the image and the sentiment to add a little dimension to the card. All the edges were inked and a little brushed over the doily too. I love the ribbon on this one, my bow turned out perfect; well I think so anyways :-)
For the inside I used the same papers, some ribbon too, and then added the little flourishes to add a little sophistication to the inside.
So there you have it, an elegant card for and elegant occasion. What do you think you could use this image for?
