trying something new...

A few days ago one of my new facebook friends and also a fellow crafter asked if anyone would like to try out a digital design that she and her daughter had been working on. I emailed her and she sent me a picture - I am very new to using digital designs but I have to say I love this. The size of the flower is perfect for colouring and creating depth and there is also a butterfly that adds great detail too... Here is the link to Rachael's blog I think that you will agree she is very talented.
So to create this card I was thinking bright... I decided that I would use my polychromos to colour the image although the effect that this gave was not up to its usual standard as the card that I printed this on was not as glossy as the card that I usually use...
I tied to match the colours that I have used to my Stampin' Up! card stock - and they are not far off! I chose the colours melon mambo and wild wasabi... Inking the edges of the card stock on every layer I stapled a piece of white ribbon to the right hand side of the image and to the right I added three pearls. In the bottom right hand sde of the card I stamped friend to friend as the sentiment.
I attached the layered image to a white card blank and off set the to the left hand side. I then added three pearls to the card blank and also inked the edges of this too.
I hope you like my card and thank you again to Rachael and her daughter for letting create something with their image - loved it!
Thanks for taking the time to look at my card - Debbi xxx

and I have just realised that I have stuck the image on upside apologies I could say that it was intentional but I would be lying! So please pretend that the butterfly is flying off into the sky as she should be! *blushes* xxx
