The challenge this fortnight at The Poodles Parlour is cute and cuddly. And the sponsors are Milk n' Coffee and The Digi Garden. So many great ways to win, and you can enter up to 3 times too!
I used a Milk n' Coffee sponsor image, Charlotte at Paper Ship, and colored her using my Prismacolor pencils. I colored her dress with a black opaque marker, I wanted it to look like a shiny Grad gown. Stickles on the flowers and butterfly and glossy accents on the water added the finishing touches. I used my B00 Frost Blue Copic to add the blue dots around the image. I used my Coluzzle circle for the image and the mat (still without access to my Silhouette, had to go old school, lol). I saw a side easel card and really liked the look so I googled the term and found this YouTube tutorial. I made mine 5 1/2" x 11". Then scored it at 5 1/2" so that mine was just a square. My dp's were cut to 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" and then I just cut the rose paper in half from corner to corner for my upper triangle. For my sentiment, I found a grad cap image and printed it out with my sentiment on it. I then hand cut (gasp) it out. I popped it up on pop dots to use it as my stopper on the bottom. Added ribbon, flowers and gems to finish it off.
My sentiment reads:
When you pass through the waters I will be with you
I thought it really suited not only my image but a Graduation card too.
My lessons learned: My opaque markers also wet my plain cardstock and pill it.
I look forward to seeing your creations!
