Morning. Here is the 'Girl In The Clouds', a card that I made using the new stamp collection from Leonie Pujol. I think today is the last day that it will still be available on Catch Up Via Hochanda. Just look on the TV schedule and select 19th May, I watched some yesterday.
I stamped the girl onto watercolour card with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink and dragged the colour through the image with a water brush. I added a little Gathered Twigs to the hair and some tattered Rose for the lips.
Then I added clouds in the sky, from the same stamp set. Through the sky I used Shaded Lilac Distress ink with my water brush making the surface uneven as the sky would be.
Underneath the image, I stamped the srip of emotive wordswith Black Archival ink. Then selected a square die to cut out my image.
I stamped one of the sentiments that I felt matched the scene, again with Black Archival. Added a few clouds using Shaded Lilac and coloured the sky as before. Then I cut a mat for the image and sentiment from black cardstock.
I worked out that my card base would be a 7 inch square, so I cut a piece this size for my background. I stamped a selection of clouds using Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch (1st and 2nd Generation). Then added a couple of the birds using Archival ink. Then coloured the sky as for the topper.
I added foiled highlights to the hair in gold and the clouds in Silver using a Zig 2 way glue pen and a foil sheet. Unfortunately this doesn't show up on camera, but looks fab in real life, especially when the light hits it.
I secured the background to my black card base, matted and layered the sentiment and image and raised them both from the background using foam on a roll tape.
Thank you so much for visiting today and seeing the project I am sharing. Hope you like it and the step by step I have written. Hope you will pop by again very soon. Take care xx
