DS4J DT New Release Digi Stamp - Yes I'm late-(but it was my daughters birthday!)
Good Evening peeps, yes I know I am very late in posting this card & details on my blog but I did have a really good excuse....my youngest child, Tia, turned 16 on Monday but the celebrations started on Saturday with my eldest daughter & her family visiting as it was the only day they could spare...alot more visitors all weekend & Monday evening made me very tired yesterday (Tuesday) but Ive more or less recovered now.
For this new image of Margy's, I coloured with bright & funky Promarkers, added some glitter to the headlights, metallic pens used on the wheel rims and the windscreen wipers to mimic steel/chrome.
I used a linen effect white card for the card base, just scored in half. I then added a vivid pink pearlescent paper for the bakground topped with a fairly vivid purple pearlescent paper. Its fairly rare that I dont use a ribbon on any card I make so I found a piece of black grossgrain with fauz white stitches and faux daisies on it. I wanted to add loads of funky bright paper flowers to the card but I hadnt got much space left, so, after lifting a piece of the pink backing paper, I slid in a piece of hessian type mesh which is really stiff. Supported with pinflair glue gel, the flowers held on with sheer grace and finished with a faux pearl in the middle, I think that they look stunning. The overall effect looked ok but to make it really really well. That was done by adding the 2 large retro patterned buttons, the funky butterfly (which is actually a decorative item that fits on to a "croc" shoe with the fastening cut off and stuck with Pinflair glue gel) and the small corner of white lace.
