Tellen's Place at Stampin' Dymonz

While I'm getting this blog upto date, I wanted to share this with whoever's reading.
Over at Stampin' Dymonz Creative Space there's a challenge going on using a specific Tellen's Place Design image. It's given free so no excuses.
rules are
You are to create an A2 sized card (4.25 x 5.5 inches) using this digi from Tellen's Place Designs.
  1. The digi is to be hand colored using markers -- Copics, SU! Stampin' Write Markers, ProMarkers -- any marker sets you have/use.
  2. Your card needs to be made using the following cardstock colors: Purple, Fuchsia/Magenta, and Black.
  3. As part of the use of this image, it must be matted using all 3 cardstock colors.
  4. You must also use cream colored lace ribbon on your project.
This is my take on it
The image reminded me so much of my grandmother, I likened it on her.

The image was coloured with promarkers with a touch of gold gel pen for the specs. The ink distressing done with tattered rose, milled lavender, dusty concord and black soot distress inks. This was then layered onto the required coloured C.S. Corner punched in opposite corners. "Happy Birthday" stamped all over the base pink c.s. which was layered onto more black.

The lace element of the recipe, well I cheated a bit here. The cream lace I have is too wide for this card so I coloured some white with my ivory promarker, decided it was too dark so lightened with alcohol ink blending solution. Gathered up to make a flower with a purple button for the centre, sewn onto the pink and black layers. The "21" are gel stickers and the letters "again" started off as red, coloured with black promarker.

This was then attached to the purple card base.

Simple and quick basic card.
