New Hat


Today I'm sharing this card with you.

The image is New Hat from Lili of the Valley and has been coloured using Promarkers. I added a little Sakura Clear Star on the mirror and on the stamens on the flower on the hat. I cut the image out using the Spellbinders Die Labels Twelve and inked around the edges with Spun Sugar Distress Ink while the image was still in the die. I cut a mat with a larger die from the set and did some free-hand paper piercing around the edge.

I used a Craftwork Cards 8" x 8" card blank. I cut a piece of the Dusky Rose card and pierced around the edge using my Tim Holtz ruler and matted it onto some burgundy card. Following the sketch from the Willow Sketchie Challenge this week, I added a piece of Polka Dot paper from My Mind's Eye Lost & Found paper pack. I used the Martha Stewart punch Doily Lace for the pretty edge. I then distressed another piece of paper from the same pack and a Dusky Rose mat and edged them both with the Spun Sugar Distress Ink.

I cut 2 brackets out using the Spellbinders die set Parisian Accents and inked through the die with the Spun Sugar. I assembled the card as per the sketch and added a few flowers from my stash.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges -
