Craftitude Challenge #61 ~ Add a Brad or an Eyelet
Woohoo! It's time for our new challenge at Craftitude Challenges and this fortnight we are honoured to be sponsored by artbymiran. Love her images and was amazed to discover that Mi Ran Jung, the artist, lives only about an hour away from me. We're practically neighbours...lol. The image that I chose to play with for my ATC is called Bashful Belinda and is available in artbymiran's Etsy shop here. I coloured Belinda with Prismacolor pencils, fussy cut her, and popped her up on foam tape.
The background is triple layered: gold patterned paper (MME), brown cardstock, and Lady Couture glossy embossed paper (DCWV). The edges of the two patterned papers were inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink, and the bottom layer was faux stitched. Tiny butterflies were cut from vellum and patterned paper using a Recollections punch. The vellum wings were folded up and edged with Vintage Photo and then Icicle Stickles. Tiny amber gems were added to the bodies once the two layers were attached in the center and also to Belinda's hair ornament. The pocket watch is a brad, and those teeny tiny flowers were cut with a Punch Bunch punch which my buddy, Paulette, sent me...thanks, Paulette.The flowers were sculpted slightly with a stylus and then half pearls were added to the centers and tiny green triangles for leaves.
Belinda and I thank you for visiting today. She would tell you herself but she's...bashful. If you get a chance, pop over to our Craftitude Challenges blog to see the gorgeous creations by the rest of our talented team. Stay tuned over there for a DT call which will be posted next week. We'd love to have you join our team.
