Pearly & girly

cypdt17thfeb 001

At Craft Your Passion this week the challenge is Girly Girl.We have the fabulous Crafty Sentiments 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.

I’ve coloured up the gorgeous Harriet – In the Background by Crafty Sentiments with Copic Ciao Markers,including the Blender to make a hazy sky.I chose some pretty pink pearly card to go with her.This colour is also found in the background papers and as the floral one is particularly bright I thought it would make a nice contrast.Went to town a bit (well for me!) adding lots of punched and die cut elements as well as lots of embellishments. These include a piece of cheesecloth,a doily (cut in half then doubled up as the paper glared thru’),lots of different sized pearls and a couple of pearly buttons threaded with baker’s twine.I had planned to use and made up a pearl topped pin with a bow tied round it but by the time I’d put everything else in place there wasn’t really a suitable space left for it.Ah,well never mind at least I have something ready for another creation 🙂
