I’m here with this fortnight’s Dream Valley challenge, sponsored by Lemon Shortbread, Lots of Layers!
We were lucky enough to be given a couple of lovely Lemon Shortbread images to choose from and I picked Bob Pixie Girl with Flower. She does actually come with a branch under her bottom, but because of the diecut I wanted to sit her in I trimmed off the branch.
I coloured her with copics, adding some glitter highlights to her dress, underskirt and flower in her hair. As I said above I then trimmed off the branch she was sitting on.
The pretty butterfly diecut is from Tutti Designs. All the papers and the diecut, plus the layered butterflies on the diecut and the layered flowers on the diecut all come from the gorgeous Kaisercraft Fairy Dust paper pad. The second I saw this pad I knew I had to have it as it’s a combination of my favourite colours, purple and aqua/green. The mats and the floral diecut all came from one sheet of paper too. I do like to be frugal, lol. You can’t see it behind, so why waste it!
I die cut all my layers with Sue Wilson’s double pierced squares. I was very annoyed the first time because I accidentally cut the layer the image is sitting on and it’s mat with the same die set, instead of the alternate set, and they were too far apart. So I have a little tip for you if you have these dies. Flip over one set of them and mark them in some way so you know if you want a tight mat and layer that you are using dies from the different sized sets and not dies from the same set. I marked mine with a little dash on all four sides with a sharpie white pen. Hopefully that will stop me making the same stupid mistake in the future.
A pretty little banner sentiment from Craftwork Cards’ Year of Sentiments book, brad and some touches of glitter finished it off.
