Forever: Tiddly Inks Special Guest!

Thursday, April 12, 2012

Hi everyone! So I am sure you have heard by now that Tiddly Inks is celebrating their second birthday this month! Woohoo! And I was so super lucky to be asked to join in their celebrations and create a card for their birthday theme of 'Frame the Moment'!!

I created a three layer shadow box card using the gorgeous Forever image. Isn't this image amazing?? :D This card and I had stern words while making....I couldn't find a tutorial for what I wanted so I kind of made my own. Let me know if you would like instructions and I can see what I can do :)

I made the box out of black card stock, and some My Mind's eye papers. I used a chipboard sentiment on the back layer which I inked with Walnut Stain distress ink and then lacquered with Diamond Glaze to give it a nice sheen.

I added some yummy cheesecloth, some twine, a few prima flowers, and some Kaisercraft black rhinestones to tie everything in.

'Forever' was coloured using copic markers. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E53, E11, E00, R11
Hair: (Lady) E21, E25, E29 (Vampire) E11, E15, E18
Dress: YR000, YR02, YR 04, YR07, E15, E49
Suit: C3, C5, C7, 100

So this week has been a big photography experiment week so I am so sorry if the photos are a little dodgy...I am really struggling with this! Thank you all for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to Tiddly Inks to play along with their current challenge! :D

Challenges that I am entering with this card:

Paper Sundaes Challenge - Recipe (I have used Kraft and diecut circles)
Can you Digi It - Inspiration Photo (I have used the colours and flowers :)
