You may want to take the brightness of your monitors down before viewing my card - you have ben warned it is very bright.
I raided my stash for the backing paper, which was actually a free DP from a magazine that has been in my stash for at least a couple of years and forgotten about until a recent sort out. I matted it on to bright pink paper and trimmed it to leave a narrow border.
I coloured the image of Xandi and winky using Spectrum Noir markers as follows
Hair TN2, TN3, TN5, TN7
Skin FS2, FS3, TN2
Dress, Booths hat and Gloves, BP2, BP3, BP5 IB2,IB3,IB5 and true black
Her belt was coloured using a black Sakura gel pen to get a glossy finish
Winky was coloured using BG2 and BG3
I added Shadow underneath using BG1
The image was cut out using the largest oval from my x-cut plain ovals set and then I stuck it onto black holographic card and trimmed it to leave a narrow border, before sticking on teh left of teh card using Glue Gel to add dimension.
The pink panel on teh right is made from a strip of Bright Pink velum I had in my stash and I embossed it using a Craft Concepts universal embossing folder. I wrapped the strip round white card and then stuck thsi onto plain black card and trimmed to leave a border before sticking it to the right of my card.
I added the sentiment a letter at a time using letters cut from black card using one of my x-cut letters dies.
The butterfly was cut from bright turquoise card and I added pink flat back pearls to the body.
The leaves were cut using a kreasions die and I finished off with the flower which was made using different size flower punches and the punched shapes were layered up and a blue flat back pearl was added to finish the flower off.
I loved working with this digi and this is something way our of my comfort zone when it comes to colours I am more one for muted vintage tones but maybe it is time for a change.
