Harper Blue

Hello all.  Hope you are all well today.

Several posts today all for challenges starting today.

This post is to launch a new challenge at Crafting from the Heart.

Challenge 157 has a theme of 'Always Anything Goes'

Our sponsor for this challenge is

I have used a lovely digi called 'Harper Blue' a really lovely teenager digi although I think it would suit any young girl or woman.

After printing I coloured her in using my copic marker pens.  I then fussy cut her out using my BSC on the 'direct to cut' facility with a 0.4mm border.

I have embossed a piece of white card using a bark embossing folder from couture.  I then kissed it on the embossed side with some cosmic shimmer Mediterranean blue gilding polish and then die cut a frame out using creative expressions double pierced noble rectangle dies.

The mats are also white card but edged again with the same blue gilding polish.  The flowers which are cut from a tattered lace die and the leaves from a creative expressions die are also plain white card but coloured with the blue gilding polish.

Although I don't think you can see it properly in the photograph but the leaves I have also triple embossed to give them a high shine.  Also they were a little sticky from the glue even though they had dried for a couple of days so I covered that with the triple embossing.

I have finished my flower off with a small blue button and a sentiment which I stamped using a Phill Martin stamp and versafine ink.  Again I have edged it with the blue gilding polish.
