Hi everyone. It's Bonnie here today. Earlier this week, I decided to play with an image from The East Wind for a circle themed challenge for which I needed an inspiration piece. I coloured Lucy Loo Flower Goddess with my Prismacolor pencils, adding some tiny punched flowers to her neckline and sleeve. The image was then cut out with a Die-namics circle die and inked around the edge with Peacock Feathers Distress ink.
A rectangle was cut from black cardstock slightly smaller than the white card base. Three smaller circles were cut from turquoise designer paper using dies from the same set. They were inked around the edges with Peacock Feathers and faux stitched with a black Micron. A length of black and white baker's twine was wrapped across the card bisecting the circles. Sparkly white letter stickers spelling JOY were added to the black background.
Once the image was adhered to the card, three tiny butterflies were punched from the same turquoise paper and shaded with Prismacolor pencil before colouring the bodies with black pen These were adhered coming off the image circle to seem like the butterflies were flitting about. It also ties the image to the background. A black button was added to the center turquoise circle...one more round element and it seemed to anchor the twine visually.
Thanks for visiting today. Lucy Loo and I appreciate you spending time with us. Remember to check out The East Wind blog tomorrow when we will begin our next challenge.
