Inky Chicks - Flowers

Good evening everyone!

On this cold and wintery Tuesday evening I'm here to share my Inky Chicks Design Team card and a little bit of sunshine with you. Our theme this week is Flowers

Our sponsor is Cute As A Button, and we got to choose one of Francesca's fabulous images to play with, so I chose this little cutie. She's called Lego Queen and I coloured her with Copic markers.


Here's What I did
I used a 5" x 5" white card base and matted and layered it with some plain card and patterned paper (PP).  I created the layout with the image and text in CraftArtist 2 and printed it directly onto white colouring/blending card stock. Using the PP as my guide I coloured my image with Copic markers so that everything would tie in together; this was also the case for the coloured card I used. To draw the eye in towards the image I used blue distressing inks around the edge.  The image was then matted and layered onto 2 die cut squares, and stuck to the card base using foam tape to raise it up slightly. To finish off I added a die cut photo corner along with a flower and some leaves.

Here's everything I used:
Digi Stamp: 'Lego Queen' by Cute As A Button
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Orange & Red CS, Craftwork Cards Super Smooth Digital CS, 'Bake A Cake' Paper Pad (Mag Freebie)
