As it's the first Friday of October it's the start of a new challenge at Creative Artiste We are a challenge blog for everyone who likes to mix their media. As long as you use more than one media on your project we'd love to see you enter the challenge. This is a month long challenge so you have time to create projects and enter up to three times. A full list of the rules is on the challenge blog. Thank you to everyone who entered Challenge #6 for September, it was a fantastic turnout. The winner has been announced on the blog.
Our theme this month is
"Lace and Pearls"
and we are being sponsored by Deedee's Digis.
I have made this card for your inspiration.
I used Pan Pastels to colour the front of an 8"x 8" card from blue at the bottom to pink at the top. I then took a strip of hessian and painted the centre with blue Artiste acrylic paint. I stitched pearls to some lace and added that and the hessian to the card. I die cut mirri card and a blue card with X-cut oval dies as a mirror.
The image from Deedee's digis I used is called Special Lady and comes with 3 images and 5 sentiments. I merged two of the images in MCS and used Copics to colour them. I die cut the image with the X-cut oval die and tucked a small scrap of lace between the mirror and the image.
I changed the colour of the sentiment in MCS and matted it on to blue card. I added some faux half pearls and a blue bow to the card. I created the flower by coiling a length of lace and stitching.
I stitched on some more pearls and finished the card with a mini bottle full of pearls.
Now please visit the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog to see the wonderful projects created by my talented team mates for more inspiration. Remember to have fun and enter your Lace and Pearl creations in the challenge.
