Lemon Shortbread Challenge - Tuesday 19 June 2018

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

The challenge this fortnight is "anything goes".
For my birthday card I have used the Lemon Shortbread image called "Sailor Dress".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and chalked the background with pearlescent chalks for a subtle effect.

I recently won a Creative Crafting World Challenge and my prize was a set of 2 CDs, the Lace Collection Volume 1 and 2.  The papers are gorgeous so I have used a dotty/lace one and a stripe/lace one.

As the little girl was holding a sunflower I have used some stamps I got with a magazine last year as I had to have it as I loveeeeeeeeee sunflowers.  I stamped the sunflowers, coloured with Promarkers, used a pearl dimensional pen for the centre of the flower and cut out and cut down between every 2-3 petals so I could curl for more dimension.  I used a greenery die I got from a friend for Christmas and finally used a stamped sentiment to finish off the card.

Promarkers used:

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal
Hair - Henna, Walnut and Raw Sienna
Dress/socks/shoes - Denim Blue, Cyan, Azure, Poppy and Crimson
Sunflower - Cocoa, Lemon, Yellow and Marsh Green.
