Blanche - Saturated Canary
Hi everyone from another sunny day in Sunderland. Can I begin by welcoming my new followers I am very grateful for your interest.
Well today I battled through a chest infection to make this new card, coughing and spluttering everywhere.... waits for the awwwwwwwwwwwww... :)
And what have I done but the typical mistake that all cardmakers do at some time or another, didn't read the challenge correctly. I thought it was just Black and White, but not solely black and white. duhhh.
But I don't mind, well not much :)
This is Blanche, yet another Saturated Canary image, Krista really does draw some fantastic images.
I really had fun colouring this, and it certainly took my mind off feeling ill. I wish I looked as good as the lady in the image lol. I used Spellbinders Labels 25, Floral Ovals and used Mystique embossibility folder on the background. I added a Memory box corner and buckle which I sparkled with glitter and WOC flowers. Ribbon is from Mei flower and pearls from my stash.
She is coloured with Promarkers and Prisma pencils and I added Black soot distress ink to the edges.
The inside reflects the front.
I am entering Saturated Canary challenge # 'Happy Birthday', Divas by design challenge #33 'Monochromatic' Deep Ocean Challenge # 24 'Use punches/dies' My Mums Craft Shop challenge #55 Embossing and I don't know if black could be counted as bright, if not it will be disqualified but am going to try again at Passion for Promarkers challenge #147 'Bright and Light'.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my card
