Papertake Weekly – stitching

Woohoo I actually managed to get a challenge card done for a change.  I am so not in the mood for making cards, the old mojo has gone on her summer holidays and my back is still agony.  All in all not a good combo lol.

So, I was mooching through my stamps on Tuesday and rediscovered this gorgeous gorgeous stamp Dreaming Pixie and sat down to play.  This weeks Papertake Weekly challenge is for stitching (something I love to do on my cards) so I’m entering this there.

I have used Summer Lights and Summer Fun digi sets from Bearly Mine Designs – how gorgeous are they!!  The stunning lace was in my DT pack from Wild Orchid Crafts – it broke my heart to use it lol.

The flowers are also from  Wild Orchid Crafts, I have used Classic Sweet Roses, 20mm roses, 15mm roses.  The leaves I made by folding a scrap of green card in half and cutting out leaf shapes.

The image has been coloured with distress inks:
Skin: Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany
Dress, roses and wings: Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick (all mixed together)
And a touch of weathered wood for the shadow under her arms and her eye-shadow.

I’ll be back tomorrow with my Just Magnolia challenge – it’s Special Monthly challenge time again so a great prize from Simon Says Stamp 

Thanks so much for stopping by,

  2. Oh Bev! This is just gorgeous! I think your mojo must be doing fine really if you can produce a card like this - maybe she's just playing hide and seek. I hope your back improves.

  48. So sorry you're still not feeling up to the mark, Bev, hope your back improves soon. This is another stunning card- she is such a lovely image and you've coloured her beautifully. I just love the whole composition of your card (methinks Mojo was just trying to make you think it had gone but once it saw those fingers at work it knew it had to return)

  56. Beautiful! You always do such a great job! When you color with distress inks/watercolors, what type of paper do you use? I use watercolor paper but it's not this smooth. Thanks so much!
