Imagine ...

I made up my mind to do something special for the Sir Stampalot challenge - the first one. The only requirement is the theme - fantasy. Well, the gorgeous images from Ching-chou kuik definitely fit that bill, so I took one and started to plan.



First, I coloured the image with Promarkers - specifically, Bluebell, China Blue, Powder Blue, Violet, Gold and Pastel Yellow, and Vanilla and Oatmeal for the skin tones. Then I gave the background of the image a wash using Twinkling H2Os in Interference Violet, although this hasn't shown up on the photo. Having done that, I used my Promarker colour chart to design two backing papers - both using gradients of the blues and yellows and adding either a star or a butterfly motif. Then I took some card and coloured it with Bluebell and put it through my Wizard with a Cuttlebug folder to emboss it.

Next, I pulled out my newest toys - some flower and leaf punches. I used plain white card and coloured it with various Promarkers and added some of the backing paper too. I used a ball embossing tool to shape the flower and leaf layers and assembled them, finishing them with sticky gems. I added a computer-generated sentiment, and that was it!
