Creative Expressions Thursday

Hi folks

Good Morning
Here is this weeks card for Creative Expressions , I have used the stamp from the stamps to die for range
I kept this one simple and let the stamp speak for itself as it is so pretty, Using just a piece of the wonderful paper pad we on the DT were sent for October.

I am loving blue at the moment and especially the blue in the flowers

 I stamped out the nice crisp image and used the sentiment that came with it to simply add next to the main image.

 I chose a few gel pens and a water brush to colour the image in so I got a nice sparkly pearly finish for this one. I used a tile to mix any colours with a little water too.

 Here is the image coloured and I used a grey promarker to go around the edges to make it stand forward.

Next I took a piece of one of the papers from the paper pad for this month and this is actually the back of one, so pretty and matted it onto blue card. I then took some seam binding and wrapped it around the lower part of the card three times.

 I gave it another mat of blue card with foam in between for the backing and also added a mat to the back of the Apple blossom and raised this onto foam and added to the centre of the card.

 I went around the sentiment with grey as I said to pull the image forward and you can just see the white gel pen in laces on the writing as a little highlight, I also used the white to highlight throughout the flower bunch and foliage also.
Next I tied a three layer seem binding bow and added some pearls strings to it and topped the knot off with a small pearl embellishment. I chose not to add any pearls around the edges or anything else other some stickles to the sparkly flowers just to give them a nice twinkle, so I used a baby blue colour and kept it only to the flower heads, although you cannot really see that on camera I am afraid but it is there all sparkly in person.

 I did try to snap it but as I said it is very difficult to see on cam.

 I went in with darker blue and green and added a few shadows to the bottoms and underneath Flowers which you can see in this photo for shadow and a 3D effect.

 Here is the complete image again 

Thank you for stopping by and for all those of you that comment and enjoy what I do.
Have a great Thursday and I will see you all very soon.

Love to all.
