Weekly Inspiration - Norma J Burnell's "Will-O and The Wisps"

Sweet Pea Stamps

I am very excited to share with you today my first creation for the Sweet Pea Stamps blog.  I applied to be on the challenge a couple of weeks ago and was over the moon to be asked to join this amazing team.

The theme challenge this month (March) is Scream For Green and you still have plenty of time to enter so why not head over to the blog and join in.

For my creation today I have used the digi Will-O and The Wisps by Norma J Burnell
I decided to make a gate fold card for a change.  After selecting my green hammer card I then cut two extra panels for the front.  These I embossed and then air brushed with Promakers.
Next I printed the digi twice so I could mask off the area I wanted to hand colour and air brush the background.
 And here we have the digi with the airbrushed background.
 Time to colour the digi with my beloved Promarkers.
 I made a flower and coloured a shiny white leave embellishment green.  A gold mount was made for the digi and I used a gold mesh material on the front sections of the card.  I wanted the skin of this beautiful lady to have a slight green tinge so air brushed lightly over the whole digi with Apple Green. Time now to assemble.
 As you can see I changed my mind about using the flower, it was to heavy for the card in appearance.  Nothing wrong with evolving a card as you go along lol. In the end I used a green feather, three flower sprays which I coloured with my Promarkers and then made a wee bow in green and pink.
