Precious wings - posting for lacy sunshine creative group


Good morning to you all this is my second posting for the Lacy sunshine creative group. These little sweethearts can be found in the new section of the Lacy sunshine shop. I decided to keep the card quite simple and make it into an easel card.I printed 3 images out and colored the bits i wanted and added glamour dust to their wings. I colored with graphit markers and added small gems to the flowers around the cup brim. The teapot is a laser cut which a very nice gentleman cut out for me especially as he normall does wooden laser cuts. You can find more of their cutouts at info@lasercutoutslasercutouts.co.uk and on face book at facebook.comlasercutouts#lasercutouts
The teapot was then mounted onto card and cut round and added to the back of the easel card, i used tim holtz distressing ink to give it that aged look and as if it was made of wood. I also distressed the diecut underneath the roses which i purchased from wild orchid crafts.
I f you like a challenge why not join us every fortnight over at the Lacy sunshine challenge blog and also for the monthly challenge at the lacy sunshine facebook page where if you join you get a freebie image to play along with.
