Hello and welcome! It's Saturday again (hard to believe the last weekend of February!!) and it's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. This week we want to see "Hand Coloring or Paper Piecing". It's a nice and easy one I think and hope you will join us! Remember, we welcome up to 3 different creations so maybe you will try both options! There are two prizes to win this week - a digi prize of 3 images by Ruth Hamilton Design and a Tonic die set from Coleman Craft Warehouse.
This week I decided to use one of Ruth Hamilton Design's images, the beautiful Clematis Montana to make my card. When I selected this image I had a completely different card in mind but then this is what it turned out to be and I do like the look of it.
I used Copic markers for coloring in light shades of blue, lilac and lavender (flowers) and a couple shades of green (plus E50 - this eggshell color will give a nice glow on the edges) for the leaves. I also used a Sepia Faber Castell Polychromos pencil for some shading.
I printed the image out twice, fussy cut the full image and then the two large blossoms from the second image.
A Stampers Anonymous tiles stencil from this set was used on the background with Bundled Sage Distress ink for some interest on the background. Before adhering the flowers, I stamped the music note stamp (an oldie from a Whiff of Joy stamp kit - this stamp set would make a good alternative option) using Versafine Onyx ink.
The two separate flowers were then added under the music note, one of the flowers with foam tape. Sentiment is from Penny Black's set Blooming Sentiments (also on Amazon). I've used it on a couple other upcoming cards (not the same sentiment just from the same set) and it was still laying on my desk which is what inspired the music theme of the card.
