Time to Relax!

Well tonights card was origionally made for a DT project, but the image and creator are no longer with the team so I am posting it seperately. 

The backing papers are froma dove craftpaper pack and I have used a fiskars boarder punch to create the bottom boarder and the 2 corner pieces.

Side view

The image has been cut out with a Nellie Snellen die cut, and has been inked with blue and purple, then liquid pearled. The image has been coloured with pro markers and I have used glossy accents on the bubbles and mini gems to decorate. 

The pins I found on ebay and the sentiment is a Lili of the valley clear stamp set sentiment. which has been punched out then inked with blue and purple.

The flower and swirls are from Marianne creatables die cuts, they have been cut out of white card then inked with the same colours to match everything together. 

I will be entering this card into the following challenges. All things bright and beautiful

Thanks for stopping by
