Julia Spiri Challenge Blog - 17th March 2016

Good morning everyone, welcome to another challenge, the theme for this one is Paris and here are my DT makes.  I love these images so much I just had to make more than one!!

Card Recipe:

White cardstock from crafty stash
Green cardstock from crafty stash
Backing papers from Debbi Moore Paris Bookazine CD
Julia Spiri The Flower Girl  digi image coloured with Copics, Derwent pencils and Spectrum Noir Sparkle Glitter pen
Tattered Lace leaf die
Sentiment from crafty stash
Faux gems
Tonic rectangle dies

To create this I scored and folded a piece of A4 white card to make a 15cm by 15cm square card blank.  To this I layered some backing papers.

After colouring my image I die cut her and attached to my card using wet glue.

I fussy cut the flowers from one of the backing papers, shaped them with a ball tool and added to the bottom left hand side of my card, adding the leaves and the faux gems.

Finally, I added three faux gems to the top right hand side of my card and the sentiment just below these.

It was my son and daughter-in-law's 16th wedding anniversary on 26 February and I made this card for them.

Card recipe: 

White scalloped card blank from crafty stash
Blue satin board from Create and Craft
White card from crafty stash
Cloud embossing folder from Sheena Douglass
One of the new fabulous Love in Paris digi image by Julia Spiri coloured with Copics, Spectrum Noir Sparkle glitter pens and Prismacolor pencils
Crafters Companion sentiment dies.
Corner punch

To create this card I used a  white 8in x 8in scalloped card blank.

To this I added a piece of smaller blue satin board which I had passed through the embossing folder and rounded the edges using the corner punch.

After colouring my image I cut around and used a corner punch on the edges before adding to my main card.  I added the Love in Paris sentiment which comes also from Julia Spiri and finally the die cut words to complete.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I hope you like my DT makes for today's challenge.
