Flower Child





This is my card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge... I love this challenge, the sketches always have something that takes you 'outside the square' and I love that!

I enjoyed it even more as I used these gorgeous stamps from Layers of Color. It was 'love at first sight' for me when I came across their site and I have used this set called Flower Child. If you haven't been there before, make sure you go and have a look, you won't be sorry!

The image has been coloured with chalks and sponged around the edges, than layered onto a Scalloped Rectangle Nestie (thanks to Melinda80), which I lightly sponged. This was attached to the DP with dimensionals to give depth. I added some shading to the wings , which are from the Layers of Color set, 'Regal Wings'- with chalks and then lightly added Kindy Glitz to give them a bit of shimmer, these too are attached with dimensionals! The lower panel is embossed the with Textured Textiles Embossing Folder, torn and slightly sponged. I used chiffon ribbon and thread it through those lovely little pearl buckles...I really like the effect this has. The pearls added above the Nesties is the finishing touch! I have just loved making this card...I love the vintage feel it has, touching on nostalgic!

Thank you for looking and for your encouraging comments - you make my day...don't forget, if you haven't been over the the MMSC, you are missing out - it is more and more fun by the week!!
