Pretty Face





Here is a card I have made recently incorporating the colours of turquoise and orange.  The card measure 15 x 15cm and is made from stout white card.  The card has been covered on the front with a piece of digital backing paper with an abstract orange/blue colourway.  It is available in my Etsy store.








The mat has been made from turquoise linen effect card and has been punched with Martha Stewart around the page punches.  A piece of narrow orange grosgrain ribbon has then been threaded through the edging and tied in a bow at one corner before mounting onto the card.








The girls face has been stamped with Memento black ink, cut out with a circular die and then coloured with alcohol ink brush markers.  The orange dots have been added using a Sakura Aqualip pen.  The image has been added in the centre with foam pads to add relief.








The 'On Your Birthday' foiled plate was also added on foam pads.








Finishing touches were added by edging with orange chalk ink.
