Pushing the Boundries

I have really pushed myself out of my comfort zone today with this card. The colours I have used are not my usual colours & I normally run a mile when I see a sketch that isn't straight forward. However, I am loving the result :-) I think I will need to take some better pictures in the morning though.

I have used this gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamp & coloured her with my Promarkers. I distressed round the edges with Milled Lavender. The papers are a mixture of Daisy & Dandelion, HOTP & Wild Rose Studio.

 Here is a close up of the image.I have added flowers, Flat Backed Pearls, Bo Bunny Pearl Swirls & a heart charm.

On the inside of the card I have continued with my duplicate image which I have stamped in Old Rose. x Clare x

What a beautiful card Clare. I love the vintage look and feel of it. The image is just lovely and I like how you have her perched on the bottom of the diamond shape. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!
