Gem


A customer at the hospital last month asked me to make her a pink easel card with a white Westie and this is what I made her. I added some soft cream shading on the dog as dogs aren't all pure white.
Image - Pink Gem - Gem in Love
Medium - Copics
Papers - Anna Marie Blissful Pink
Dies - MFT pierced rectangles, Doohickey lace edge
Sentiment - LOTV teenage girl
Punch - Fiskars flower
Velvet ribbon and pearls from stash

I tried a new technique which I saw on a site and it worked pretty well though it doesn't show all the colours very well on here. I used Dovecraft 3d pearl effects in various colours. I made lots of pearl drops on a piece of white card randomly using the different colours. I then put another piece of card and top and pressed them together, let it dry and then punched out the flowers. They are lovely and shimmery and I will be trying it again.

AYLI pearls or gems (pearls always for me. I love the soft sheen rather than the bling of gems.)

Gorgeous easel card Marianne! Such a cute Westin. The flowers look wonderful, I enlarged them on my screen and can see perfectly the shimmer which must look beautiful in real life. The customer must have been over the moon with this card. Debra x
