I'd forgotten just how much I love Willow with umbrella, and when I saw the Mojo Monday sketch I knew straight away I wanted to use her. Then I saw My Time To Craft challenge is Rain this week - I had just the image and sentiment - perfect!! I also wanted to use these Basic Grey papers, I love the deep, rich colours so am also entering this card in this week's Sugar Nellie challenge which is flowers. Another perfect challenge for me seeing how much I love me flowers lol. I've deviated from the sketch slightly - I haven't put the 3 pearls at the top of the card, they looked lost and overwhelmed by the image so I've put them at the bottom of the card.
I have coloured Willow from Whiff of Joy with distress inks and H2O's. I used the following colours
Distress inks: Weathered Wood, Antique Linem, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Fired Brick, Tattered Rose, Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain.
H2O's: Cinnamon Brown, Chestnut Brown, Cedar Wood, Poppy Red, Sunburst, Fern.
The papers are Basic Grey Stella Ruby from The Glitterpot - I stamped some flourishes on with Autumn Leaves stamps and a beige chalk ink on the top green portion of the paper
The border punch is Martha Stewart Lace Doily
The pearls are from Sally - what would I do without these!!
The flowers (small and medium) are Prima, the large one is punched from the same card as the image mat and embossed with a ball tool to give texture.
Thanks for looking,
