Simply peaceful Ella

This week at AiFactory Challenges it’s Double Time.We’d love to see two of something on your projects.You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday July 13th to upload your project using the link below. You do not have to use an AIF image but we would love it if you did and you get an extra entry. You can find some great images in the store here. Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s fabulous work while you’re there.

Here is Ella at Peace.She’s one of several little cuties in the Ella Collection.They can all be found at AiFactory.I’ve kept the design of my card simple as I really wanted the image and colouring to be the main focus.She’s been coloured with ProMarkers.I also wanted a clean look to the card as the colours are so strong.Just love these papers!And they were a bargain.I half filled  a pizza box with 12 x 12 papers for just £8.99 at Coleman’s Craft Warehouse.They estimated this would be about 75 but when I got home and counted them there were 85 papers and 10 of the most gorgeous printed vellums. I wasn’t quite sure what to add as my 2 somethings and after pulling out every embellishment I own,plumped for these rather scrummy flower brads.

Supplies :
Image : Ella at Peace from AiFactory
Medium : ProMarkers
Papers : Paper Adventures Mod Green Damask and Mod Brown Paisley

    Love your color choices, they really make her pop off the page. Great job on shading her hair – I always seem to have trouble with hair.
