Couture 4 Fashion

Good morning all.  It's Monday morning and the start of a new challenge at Get Creative.

Our theme for this challenge is 'Something New'.

Our sponsor is

I have chosen to use a digital stamp called 'Couture 4 Fashion' for our sponsor.

For Christmas I had some money, always a lovely pressie for a crafter, and I had had my eye on the noble dies - double pierced rectangles. I had already treated myself to the first set so I also bought set B from iconuk.co.uk which gives me the complete range of laying dies which are also pierced. This is my 'something new'.

I have cut my own card blank from some white A3 card - size was 7.5" x 8.5".
I then used the largest double pierced die from both sets and cut out a black mat and a patterned mat.  The patterned paper is from a tattered lace magazine.

I then printed my image out and fussy cut using my BSC with a 1mm border.  I also cut a black mat adding a 2mm border.  I have coloured her in using the following copic markers: -

hair - E71 | E77 | E79
trousers - W3 | W5 | W7
blouse - Y11 | Y15 | Y17
shoes/bag - R17 | R35 | R37
skin - E000 | E00 | E01

My flowers were die cut using a die from tattered lace and inked with distress ink - fossilized amber and similarly the leaves which are a die from creative expressions also available from iconuk.co.uk.

The sentiment is a stamp from my stash stamped in black versafine and embossed in clear embossing powder and die cut using creative expressions pierced flags die.

Finally I finished off my card using tonic nuvo black pearl drops and a white pearl in the middle of my flower which I have coloured using a black copic marker pen.
