One for the ladies

is the theme this week over on the Tando Creative blog and I've created this card for one of my Aunts…

I had fun creating this piece.  The base layers were patterned paper that had really washy colours and pattern, so I stamped over them with harlequin and chicken wire stamps….added a bit of pastel and some odd bits of stronger patterned paper and then taking a piece of corrugated card I scraped paint (I always use paperartsy fresco paints)  over the top and then added distress stickles.  Taking a Tando butterfly, three small flowers and a flower and stem….I painted with paints and added doodles to add shading….the flower doesn't have any shading all colour variations are done using the paints…even the white dots (snowflake and applied using a pencil tip)…….

Pop on over to the Tando blog during the week and see what the other DT members come up with.
