Crafts and Me Challenge - 20 July 2011

Over at the Crafts and Me Challenge Blog the topic is "add a flower".  Well who on earth wouldn't like this challenge?  I have used a Crafts and Me digital image called Dear Diary.  My first try at this card went in the bin as I spent some time colouring the image and then decided to do an out-of-the-die but didn't get it right so my colouring was wasted.  Next time I just printed off the image, did the out-of-the-die cut and it worked so I then coloured it in with my promarkers, highlighted areas with my Sakura Stardust clear pen and Glossy Accents.  The backing papers are all from the scraps box and include some gold foil effect, orange mirri card and some orange flower paper (please excuse the photo but the camera didn't like the mirri card everywhere).  The image I have 3D'd onto a tag and used one of my beloved tassels from Joanna Sheen's shop.  The front of the card has been finished off with butterflies made using two different coloured card, pearls, buttons, Marianne Designs swirls and small sunflowers.  On the inside I have decorated using the same papers but I have used my ink dusters with Tim Holtz's Spiced marmalade and Mustard Seed distress ink pads to make a backing and then used black Versafine and some Artemerio stamps to add a bit of depth to the inside of the card.
