Beautiful Sister crad

Oh wow!! I LOVE how this one turned out!! Its another Morgan Fitzsimons digi stamp, Rowan, which you can get from the Scrapbook Stamp Society Shop. Do read to the bottom, as there is a scrummy give-away running.......................

I Loved doing this one, and its just one of those cards that just slipped together, with little thinking time. You know its one of those "sweet spot" moments that footballers talk about, the perfect goal, and you knew it was going to hit the back of the net the second your boot touched it type of thing. This just flowed together!
Promarkers as always and I must admit, that I didn't use the conventional skin tone colours, I used the March Hare Limited Edition, Spring Set, which I think makes for a better skin tone for the paler skins.
I wanted Rowan to be more of the pale and interesting, with dark hair and a pale complexion, and the colours were chosen to highlight the main Image of Rowan.
Glitter, Glaze and Gold Sakura pens finished the main design, and I used the Crop-a-dile for the corners. I used the Brilliance Lightning Black ink to roughly edge the picture, but didn't emboss it, merely heated the pigment ink til it bubbled, so its a very distressed gold colour.
I then layered it onto some gold Matt Mirri, and then onto some Black card stock. As it would have looked wrong trying to squeeze it onto the front of an A5 card, and it would have been lost on an A4 card, I created a 7 1/2x 8 1/4 card, by using 2 sheets of Black card, glued at the side, and scored. I punched a couple of holes to thread some purple ribbon through, and added some purple gems. and for me its a stunner!
Hope you like it to?
But in the meantime, don't forget that I mentioned a give-away.......................
