Magic Tea Garden 1539 - Spring Fling Challenge sponsored by Sandra Caldwell
Hi everyone. Markers!Papers! and Digis! is having a Spring Fling Contest in the Facebook group and Sandra Caldwell is one of the sponsors. It runs from April 30 - May 27 and you must use the Sandra Caldwell image Magic Tea Garden 1539. I love this image so much and was excited to colour it up for a card.
Using Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, she was coloured and fussy cut leaving a narrow white border around the "wooden frame". Gray Copic marker was used to shade inside the frame and around the bunny girl. The image was then matted with black card stock and cut out again leaving a narrow black border. Foam squares were used to adhere the image to the card and provide dimension.
Gray and white dotty paper was cut to fit inside the white card base and this layer was matted with black. Another rectangle was cut from gray and white striped paper which was also matted with black. All edges of the designer paper were edged with Jet Black Archival Ink before matting was adhered. The sentiment, a nod to Alice in Wonderland, was printed on white card stock and matted with black. Two teacup brads were placed on either side of the sentiment to repeat the cup in the image.
You still have a few days if you want to play along with this fun challenge at the Markers!Papers! and Digis! Facebook group. The image is in Sandra's Etsy shop, Babycakes Digis and Designs. It was a definite Must-Have in my book :)
Life is good; so is art.
