Ava Flowery Summer

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Summer Flowers.We have the fabulous Digital Paper Craft as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

For my card I’ve used the sweet,sweet Ava Girl by Digital Paper Craft and coloured her with a mix of ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.The FlexMarkers were used alone on her skin,hair and shoes.I introduced a couple of ProMarker colours on her dress to get the shading and hues I wanted.The papers were a freebie with Quick Cards Made Easy.It also came with a CD-rom full of coordinating elements.I resized and punched out the sentiment then coated it in 3D Crystal Lacquer.Once this was dry I mounted it onto a tag,threaded with paper twine,from the same CD-rom.This was then bordered with some punched flowers shaped with a ball tool.I like to make leaves to match with the same punch by trimming them down and adding the vein detail with a very fine ball tool.As the image is quite large with a lot of white space I decided to punch the floral border in white to keep in with this and to give an extra lift to the whole card.I dotted some Liquid Pearls into the center of the flowers on the border and the red ones too.Some flat backed pearls were used to embellish the cut out corners.I did also apply some gloss to her shoes too but it doesn’t really show in the main pic so here’s a closer view 🙂
