Featured Artists - Linda BIggs - Jane's view

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase and image from Sweet Pea Stamps.  As it is Featured Artist Week the whole DT are working with images by Linda Biggs and I have chosen to work with the beautiful image Medicine Woman which is available from the Sweet Pea Store in both rubber and digi.

I have a bunch of design papers from magazines and they just seem to sit there unused so I am making a conscious effort this year to attack the pile lol.  With that in mind my first step was to choose my backing paper and then colour my image around those colours.  With that done I used a peel off birthday sticker in white and airburshed it with my Promarker, one of the colours used in the image.  I should add the image was coloured with Promarkers and I chalked the background. The sentiment was, once dry, placed on some of the DP used for the background and then die cut.
To finish off the card I used a Dreamcatcher die from Cherry Lynn which I airbrushed and Sizzix  - Ornate Hanging Sign.  The sentiment was cut with Xcut tags. a lace border was added along the bottom edge and a bow tied with the same lace and then airbrushed with my Lilac Promarker.  Finally, some pink Stickels on the dreamcatcher and pearls picking out the three main colours, pink green and blue.
