Design Sketch

For my last post of the year I have made this card for the Marianne Design Challenge. I hope I have interpreted the rules correctly as some things get lost in translation.

I used Kraft card for the card base and I gave the image a sepia tint on my computer with Picassa and tinted the edges with Tea Die distress ink. The  larger rectangle was the reverse of the background paper mounted on aqua card. MD products used are LR0112 swirls, LR0156 leaves, COL1304 flower,  DF3416 Marrakesh all cut from cream card and PL4503 enamel stickers. I added some lace, twine, tinted seam binding, blue dragonflies and a blue gem for the flower centre.

Winter Fun

I found this Scrap of blue paper and liked the snow effect so I went with the blue colour scheme with a splash of orange contrast in Don's scarf.

I wanted to make a frosty looking flower so cut out a flower COL1304 in white card overlaid with vellum and embossed with frantage Shabby blue.
I went a bit overboard with the die cuts. I cut MD LR0130 Doily and LR0285 Vintage Corners out of blue card, CR1201 Circle to frame Don and out of white card I cut LR0125 Snowflake, LR0192 Leaves, LR0241 Label and DF 3416 Marakesh. I added some liquid pearls and a large pearl centre for the snowflake.
