Ok...I got a card made for the MFT Guest DT contest as well...and I'm quite happy with it! What do you think?
I made it for this week's sketch, and was pretty happy with it. Then I realized, hey...this has 2 colors of cs, one patterned paper, and 2 embellishments...I could add another embelly and it would work for the Guest DT challenge as well. Then I thought, I'll remake it...and step it up a little. This is where I started!
I added some paper piercing and stitching, for the image itself I added grass for her to stand on, and made the sky a little more splotchy (LOVE my new copic air brush system - thanks honey!!!) to simulate some clouds. I also added some blades of grass with my pencils. Her flower was colored with spica glitter pens to add some sparkle, and I made the shadows on her skin a little more intense so you can really see them.
My three embellishments are ribbon, buttons, and linen thread. I'm quite happy with the "upgrades" this card got, and I hope you enjoy it as well! Oh..and the inside is pretty cute too - I'm thinking I should send it to my niece, but will also have to make something for my nephew then...hmmmm!
