Good afternoon everyone! I´m back home from my operation and I did get some lovely gifts. Chocolate from hubby and lots of fun craft stuff from my mother and the lovely Mita at Altheas Mix. I just had to play with some of the gifts although I´m still a bit wobbly, could be the strong painkillers, hehe.
The image is a Magnolia coloured with watercolours and a white Sakura and a Sakura glaze to give the hair some shine. I used dimensional tape to pop it out and made a 3D head.
For the background I used my fab new stampset from Impression Obsession with Distress Inks and Sakura pens, the glaze pens gives a nice resist effect. I do love the new Distress Ink Tumbled Glass :)
The lovely flowers are Prima (thanks Mita!). Corners are Cuttlebug, border punch is MS, leaf and circle dies are QK. Pearls are made with Liquid Pearls. I also used a embossing tool to create lines, you can almost see them near the punched borders. The ribbon came also with the gift (thanks mum!).
I´m entering StampARTics challenge: We would like to see Easter cards in the colors; Lilac, dark blue and black with a hint of yellow and green.
Thanks for visiting,
