Haven't done a lot in the way of making cards this week as am in the process of making a new papertole picture. When I have completed a bit more of it I will post it so you can see the different stages my piccies go through.
But I couldn't resist this doing this one challenge.
The new challenge site The Next Level has posted its first challenge which is to make a card u sing an aperture or a cut out. the card also has to have handmade Faux Prima Lollipop flowers on it. The great thing is the site has a tutorial on how to make the flowers which is dead easy to follow without any jargon. Just as well for me lol.
Cos I needed cheering up after my car fiasco and the chocolate didnt work I adored a couple of new Sugar Nellie stamps and when this one arrived I thought it would be idea in an aperture card.
I chose papers that are a download from Fred She Said and coloured the image in Copic Colours to match. I attached the swing to the branch which is a sissix die cut and inside the aperture and attached the girl with silicone so that hopefully she gives the impression of swinging in and out of the aperture.
I made the first flower following instructions and sprayed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist Purple Violet - big mistake Too Dark lost the papers underneath. Had another go and used Cosmic shimmer powder and water instead - very subtle shimmer doesnt really show on photo. Decided though I liked them both in the end so used both. OTT or what. I used some of the backing paper for the blossoms on the tree. Leaves are made with a L'Em Punch.
Have continued the colours and Branches on the inside.
