DT piece

For this weeks DT piece I was sent an IndigoBlu stamp - Elizabeth Bennet. I love the image.
I stamped the image using IndigoBlu flitter glue, then applied Colourful Thoughts gilding flakes in variegated copper.
I coloured the flowers using Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paints in Lavender Shine & Lava Red.
The face was coloured using PanPastels in burnt sienna tint, with a little burnt sienna on the cheeks.
I ripped around the edge of the stamped image & used PanPastel in burnt sienna to distress the edges.
Tore some smaller strips to write the quote on & used the burnt sienna around the edges again.
Ran some coredinations card through my Grand Calibur using a Die'Sire embossing plate - gothic script & rubbed over with sandpaper to highlight. Edged the card with flitter glue & gilding flakes.
Onto some white card I applied the burnt sienna tint all over, then went through a mask with burnt  sienna.
Matted the image onto the green card, then matted this onto the patterned card. 
Stamped the image again & coloured & cut out the flowers just to finish off.
Thought it would make a nice wall hanging so punched 2 holes & threaded string through.


  1. I love the quote Bev! The whole thing is really put together well :)
