Today I'm here with my second guest DT card for Simply Steam punk,
and its for their new challenge
I have used the beautiful Lavinia Portrait isn't she stunning?
as you can see i have strayed away from traditional steam punk colours but she just seemed to fit these really well.
So what did i do, to start i chose a 6 x 6 white card blank and covered in a light green pattern paper, then i chose a purple paper to compliment and matt his on top of the green, i found another green paper that had a design which reminded me of a daily so i cut the shape out and realised it was too big ,lol so i cut one layer of the lacy pattern off, and although i think its still a tad large it kinda works, but i should have moved it in a little, :/
Next i coloured the image with pro markers, and covered the whole thing with ultra thick embossing powder, ( this explains the flash on the image !), i printed the image again on the purple pattern paper so as not to lose the lovely spidery detail at the bottom, and stuck the coloured image over the printed one, (does that make sense? ) ...moving on lol,i added lace to the card and cut around the whole image and stuck it down with sticky pads, then i added tiny half pearls all the way around the frame.
to finish i added a bow, a metal corner embellishment and some beautiful blooms from Petal Lu.
At this point i thought i was done then thought hang on that bottom corner looks a little bare, spying the cut off part of the daily i picked it up and folded concertina style cut and tucked it just under the bottom edge of the frame. :)
I really loved making this card even though i think the doily is in the wrong position I'm quite pleased with it lol
