Tree of Secrets


Hi everyone! Today's card is my first for the Crafts and Me challenges as a design team member! How exciting! :D The theme this week is a nice and easy one - Vintage. Make sure you play along as there are some fantastic prizes on offer!

For my card I have used the gorgeous new digi Tree of Secrets. I have teamed her with some yummy Kaisercraft papers, some cheesecloth, pearls, and a cheery lynn flourish. There is also some corrugated cardboard in there that I have roughly painted white. Lots of layers on this one! The flowers are a mixture of wild orchid and prima.

I have coloured up Tree of Secrets using Copic Markers. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E53, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E13, E15, E18
Dress/Greenery: G000, G00, G82, G85
Purple Flowers: V000, V00, V94
Mountains: E000, E00, E11
Tree Trunks: E000, E00, E11, E21, E25

Here is a close up:

Hi Alyce I am not sure I am ever going to be able to tell you how I feel about this awesome creation, I have spent so long just looking and looking at the amazing design, everywhere you look there is something of beauty to see, being a lover of Vintage this appeals to me greatly but I know that I would never be able to create something as outstanding as this, the image is stunning.
