Cards und More

Good morning bloggers and welcome to my first post for Cards und More.

The challenge for this fortnight is 


Choose any line up, across or diagonally. I chose the down the middle of the board - 

Flowers / Kraft Paper / Pink

This is my inspiration for you.

The little girl with flowers is from LOTV and I used Copics to colour as follows:-
Hair - E41,42,44,35,YR20
Top, shoes and wrapping- E40,41,42,43,44,47,49
Dress, flowers and wrapping - RV00,10,13,14

You will see that I used a restricted number of colours. I wanted the image to hold together so kept the palette to browns,  pink and a little bit of soft green, to match the papers.
The lacy edged striped paper and the main backing paper are both NitWits, but the three vertical strips are just plain off-white paper stamped with a Hero Arts Birthday definition stamp. in Versafine Onyx Black. All the backing papers were distressed and then inked with Vintage Photo DI. The pink backing paper was then mounted on kraft paper then a 5 x 7 white base card.
The image of the little girl was mounted on a rosette of pink paper from the same NitWits collection made by pleating a length of the pink paper at 1/4" intervals and then gathering it onto a small circle and then inked with Vintage photo.  The horizontal paper strip was edged using a Martha Stewart punch and a piece of white ribbon coloured with a copic to match the paper was added.The flowers were made using a couple of Woodware flower punches as I have done before. ( see this link) A few green bits of foliage from an other Woodware punch completed the arrangement. The greeting from Docrafts was stamped on a small Die'Sire tag.
