Yesterday i showed a card of Edwin with his bike. Today I have a card of Tilda with her bike to show you.
The image is coloured with DistressMarkers, colouring with them is getting more and more fun!
I made the card aftger the sketch at CLPs challenge #49 - a really fun sketch to work with, giving the chance to put on lots of layers, just as I like it.
I think I bought the Dps from Panduro (forgot to note it down before cutting, so please correct me if I'm wrong). All edges are distressed and inked with DistressInk PumiceStone.
On two of the paper I used Martha Stewart edgepunches - I just love the lacy paperedges!
The swirl (a spellbinders die) is inked with DistressInk TatteredRose.
The fence (Magnolia DooHickey) is inked with DistressInk PumiceStone).
On the bike (a die from Marianne Design) I sprayed on Glimmer Mist Tattered Rose.
The butterfly (MS punch) is also inked with DistressInk TatteredRose before I painted it over with GlimmerGlaze Champagne - I gave the blue rose a little brush of that glaze too...
When it came to choosing the laces I got completely stuck! I sat with a pink, a light blue, a light green and a white lace and couldn't at all decide which one to choose! I had to call in Hedda to ask her opinion - she rejected all of them! She meant I had enough colours and rather should use some that were "almost white". I think it worked perfect - big thanks to her, for helping me out here :)
On a shelf I found the pearlstrings I bought a long, long time ago.
With so many layers on the front I wanted to make the insides more simple, so I just put on a greetingpanel and a butterfly on each side. I used a Martha Stewart PATP around the panels. The butterflies are made with the same MS punch as I used on the frontside.
I didn't want to cover this beautiful part of the DP with anything, so it had to be the backside of the card :)
On this close-up you can see the tiny Liquid Pearls I put around Tilda:
(and the halfbeads I used in two papercorners)
