iv been playing with a digi from
i have used Miss Lily
isn't she fab!
i have gone for a really kind of minky ( is that a word) pink and teal with copper, i started with a teal 8 x 8 base card and using the backing paper from Ditzies ( shhh sneaky peek) i changed the colour in my craft studio and printed it out, once it was layered up i used some diamond glaze, on one clock face i the upper right hand corner, and found some lace which was white so i coloured with a spectrum noir pen to match.
i then cut a large cog on my craft robo machine and covered this in tin foil , then coloured with , butterscotch, espresso, and just a little eggplant, alcohol inks and to finis hit off i burnished with Creative expressions cast bronze gilding wax. i printed Miss Lilly and coloured her with my spectrum's, then i did some paper piecing on the gown, and added shading with spectrum's to give a bit of depth, paper piecing is a fab technique but can look a little flat, adding shade with colour gives it a little life.
OK another 2 sneaky peeks, ( I'm so naughty!).
the flowers and the heart have been printed the heart was double printed to get the same paper design as the top layer of her skirt, i then did the same thing adding shade with pens then i used diamond glaze over all the black pattern to raise it up slightly, once dry i rubbed over carefully with the cast bronze gilding wax. layered it onto matching teal card and added the hanging keys
this has now become a tag that tucks behind the big cog which you can remove and add a message to the back if you wish
so to finish i used the flowers, printed and coloured and burnished over with Creative expressions Patina gilding wax,, then fussy cut, ( those stalks and leaves where a challenge lol) and then cut some tiny cogs on the robo, coloured and coloured and burnished with the cast bronze gilding wax, so everything has that metallic look, which sadly doesn't show too great in the pics.
anyway there you have it , my little play and a couple of sneaky peeks,lol
