Featured Artist with Jane

Sweet Pea Stamps

Hello folks, here I am again with another creation for  Sweet Pea Stamps.  This week is Featured Artist week.  The whole DT are creating with images by Rebecca Sinz and I have chosen to use the fabulous digi Gardenia.
To begin making this card I first designed and die cut the font panel.
 Next I coloured some lace with my Promarker.
 The lace was attached to the back of the die cut lattice front and also the inside of the card as part of this will be visible in the end design.
 Liquid Pearls which I applied on each of the cross sections of the lattice.
 While the Liquid Pearls were drying I colour the digi with Promarkers
I then mounted the digi onto Mulberry paper which I had used the water method to created a frayed edge.
 Now onto the flowers - grrrrrr - what grief.  I wanted white flowers so first tried with copy paper but that looked flat, then tried with hand made paper, that looked great but not white enough.  Time to put the thinking cap on - ah!! white Mulberry paper.  Perfect colour and so delicate in appearance but with this fine paper pretty fiddly to do.  I used Spellbinders Bitty-Blossoms-6.
Next I used Spellbinders Nestabilities-Labels-20 for the inside of the card.  This was edged with Derwent Blendable crayons and Promarker.
 I assembled all sections of the card and added some luscious green leaves to accompany the hand made gardenia.  Here we have a view showing the inside of the card
and here is the front of the card showing how the lattice panel is held in a curved way, locked in place by the gardenia and leaves at the side.
