Blooming Marvelous

Just a reminder that the 2 Different Colouring Mediums challenge at Just Some Lines is still running until 11:59 EST Thursday 20th September.Plenty of time to join us then!You could be in the running for a super prize and if you play along with a Just Some Lines image  you can choose to create an Anything Goes project or follow the theme.

For my card I’ve used the super cheeky and extremely adorable Petit Pot – getting in from Just Some Lines.After printing onto watercolour card I coloured with my AquaMarkers.Once I’d left it until it was completely dry I added extra depth to the shadowed areas  using Polychromos pencils.I allowed the texture of the card to really come through on the pot and shaded in the background lightly to let it show again.I tried hard to get some transparency to the wings by softly colouring so it as if you are seeing through them.This is something I’ve never done before and think it turned out pretty well.I kept the layout quite simple so as not to detract too much attention from the image but couldn’t resist making a cute little pinwheel 🙂 Not only is  it  a sweet addition it’s also fully functional.

Can you see?….It’s moved!In my vast button collection I actually have some that have one large single hole in the middle.Perfect!I made up and adhered the whole of the card front, pierced a hole where I wanted the pinwheel to be,put the legs of the brad through the button and attached the pinwheel.After that I glued the whole lot onto the card base.Although it might have been easier to just make  the whole card then add the pinwheel it just makes it a neater job and means the legs of the brad aren’t showing on the inside of the card.I found this sentiment stamp whilst rooting around my stuff and thought it was pretty apt!
