Lemon Shortbread Challenge - Tuesday 31 July 2018

Welcome to another challenge over at the Lemon Shortbread Challenge Blog.

The challenge this fortnight is "anything goes".
Oh me oh my this card has been a nightmare to photograph and I am still not happy with it now.  The camera with/without the flash is just bouncing off the pearlescent coating of the card and also the sentiment.

For my card I have used the Lemon Shortbread image called "Dandelions".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and fussy cut her out.

The backing paper I have used is from a Debbi Moore Inspiration Magazine which thankfully matched the image perfectly as I coloured her up before picking the paper.  Normally I pick the paper and then colour the image to match.  What do you do?

I have used a piece of Centura pearl card and embossed with a dandelion embossing folder and sanded back to the core.

I have finished the card off with some flowers with brad centres, ribbon (underneath the lace), lace and a Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment.

Promarkers used: 

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal
Hair - Cocoa, Cinnamon and Burnt Sienna
Dress - Duck Egg, Turquoise, Salmon Pink and Cocktail Pink.

Aarrgh, isn’t it frustrating when you can’t get a good photo?? I recently felt the same way!! This card is gorgeous though. And I think your photo is great as well. I love your layout. I try to pick the paper first and then color but sometimes I’m all over the place and that doesn’t always work out for me.. ūü§™ Thanks so much for joining us for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.
