Untouchable - Jane's view

Sweet Pea Stamps

Today is my day to showcase and image from Sweet Pea Stamps and I have chosen to work with the beautiful image 'Untouchable ' by Linda Biggs which is available from the Sweet Pea Store in both rubber and digi.

I am trying something a little different this time, printing on dark paper and colouring with my Faber-Castell - Polychromos colour pencils.  I printed the image four times just so I had a few spare copies to practice with lol.  Unfortunately the paper I have used which is a green/gold metallic type is not loving my camera at this point but I am sure you get the idea.

 Next I coloured the image.  I do love the vibrance of these pencils but have to admit they did not like my paper very much and blending was pretty hard.  Maybe I just need to practice some more to get the hang on it.
 I plan on a very straightforward card this time, concentrating on the image and then just the single colour of the paper.  Once the image was coloured I then cut it with a Spellbinder Oval die. Next I coloured some lace with my Promarkers to match up with the colour scheme,
 I then embossed and die cut another sheet of the green gold paper for the background of the card and finished off die cutting a flower with the same paper.  The die I used is a Marianne Craftables Flower.  I finished of with Olive stickles on the flower and around the edge of the card.
 For the inside I used more of the green/gold paper and added a soft mottled green paper for the writing area.  This was then embossed using the same embossing folder as for the front of the card.
 And here we have the finished creation.
