I really enjoyed doing this card. This Willow is inspiring me a lot, and I'm really pleased with the result! :) And you know what? It is Roses on Paper DT work, and it fits into four challenges! Yay! I had done cards that fitted into two, but four... this is the first! Don't you just love how sparkly she is?? :)
First I water-coloured the image, layer by layer.. leaving it to dry before adding depth and shadow( this was done for three times). When I was satisfied, I added sparkle with gel pen glitter colour from damp paintbrush. When that was dry, I covered the whole dress with 3D crystal lacquer. It really stands out!!
Now for the Challenges ;) Basic Grey.. is going green! :) They wants us to use recycled objects on our card (such as used cardboard, buttons etc.. and I used recycled cardboard for stamping.
My time to Craft wants to see the Colour Green in the card, Spoon Full of Sugar wants us to make a card for the New Year... and the sentiment goes with that. Cute Card Thursday wanted any card for any occasion... that was easy! So I will enter it for all!
The ingredients used will be listed below. All the highlighted materials are obviously a few among the gorgeous things you can find at Roses on Paper.. together with all the offers you get there.. such as the reward points tou add every time you purchase anything from Summer. These can be added till you can get a free stamp! so what you're waiting for!!?

Tip: To have a matching brad, use a gold or plain brad, punch a small piece of extra paper from the DP you're using in the card.. glue it on the brad. After you fix it in place, cover with 3D crystal lacquer and leave to dry :) Voila! You have a lovely matching brad! :)
