I’m super excited to be sharing a card that I’ve made as a Guest Designer for the Just Some Lines Facebook Challenge.To enter the November Colour Scheme Challenge you need to use any combination of red,green,silver and blue.You may choose just one or two with other colours as long as the listed ones are the main.The other stipulation is that you must use a Just Some Lines image.But with so many beauties in the store it wouldn’t be difficult to choose!My card,along with other wonderful inspiration and extra details on how to enter,can be found on the Just Some Lines Blog too.
You can find the stunning Christmas Fairy at Just Some Lines.I decided to go with a blue/silver combo but as you can see there is a teeny amount of red and green on the image.Her dress has been paper pieced and the rest coloured with Copic Ciao Markers.Being a fairy her wings had to have the obligatory glitter 😀 I coloured them in cool greys first to keep in with the silver part of the theme then coated them in Glamour Dust.The dots on her hair and wings have been defined with a silver pearl pen and the berries on the garland the robin is nestling in with Liquid Pearls.Here’s a closer view :
The papers and cardstock I’ve had for more years than I care to remember but were just perfect for this project.It’s a good job I’m such a crafty hoarder 😉 Maybe one day I will get through my entire stash – well,in my dreams perhaps!After stamping and punching the sentiment out I thought it was lacking something so I hit upon the idea of framing it with the punched out snowflakes from the border.Not only does this keep everything coordinated it also doesn’t cover up too much else.A length of silver cord with a snowflake charm tied to seemed to finish the whole thing off nicely 🙂
Tip : By paper piecing your image you can coordinate it to the rest of your project and it’s a good way of covering a large area if you are unsure about colouring it.
