Hi there! this is my first piece of work for the fantastic Digi Company Chi Chi Memories (CCM)
I am Really looking forward to my time spent here as they are such super cute images to work with...
They also run a monthly challenge on the CCM blog starting on the 15th with a free image (but you have to be quick, it is free for the first 30 downloads only)
so today, I have a NEW RELEASE image for you!
To make this card I have used the following -
8x8 inch scalloped card blanks
dovecraft bakers twine in green/white
Washi tape from Moon Stick Supplies
Beautiful blue cotton lace from TillyFlops Creations
LOTV birthday sentiment stamp
Ranger Glossy Accents
Sizzix flip its card dies (stitching hole circle and scalloped circle)
Blue Coredinations cardstock
That Craft Place's 300gsm alcohol marker super smooth white card
Papermania papers - bexley black and sew lovely
black 170 gsm card
Stickles Cotton Candy
SU not quite navy ink
Peacock Blue Distress ink
We R Memory Keepers crop a dile corner chomper 1/2 " setting
Copics - BG000, 02,05,07,09
Promarkers -burgundy, cardinal, crimson, black, cool grey 5,4,3
White gel pen (for eye highlights)
I made this card cute and girly, sticking with a predominently blue scheme to tie in with how I had coloured the image.
I coloured the image using a mixture of copics and promarkers as I am still building up my copic collection- I worked with promarkers for almost a year before deciding to change, as I found a brush nib worked better for me!
I used the technique of 'pointillism' around the image and I also added glossy accents to make her eyes shine , and to make her shoes seem patent (i love patent leather)
I then matted onto the coredinations cardstock.
I created another matt out of the same sheet of coredinations at 19cm square, and rounded the corners using my corner chomper- this provided the first matt to go onto the card blank. I then cut the bexley black paper at 18.5 cm square and rounded the corners on that too, then adhered to the blue matt.
I cut a rectangle of black card and matted the sew lovely paper onto it, and set aside. I also then cut a strip of black, blue, and the paper again to provide the bottom strip. once I had adhered those together i ran a strip of washi down the centre, flipped over and added the lace using silicone glue. I glued down the second paper layer, and the image layers overlapping slightly, then the bottom strip, just under the shoes.
I then cut the scalloped circle, stamped the LOTV sentiment and cut that out using the stitch hole circle...glued them together and added diamantes. that was then glued to the base strip.
to finish off, i added more diamantes to the corners, assembled some 'bunting' using twine and washi tape, and added a dot of stickles to each scallop.
I do hope you love her!
