Burgundy and Olive Leanne Ellis Dreamer

This is the card that I made for the lovely and very talented Teresa for her birthday. I know that she has received this now so am free to upload it.

The beautiful Dreamer image, by Leanne Ellis for Sugar Nellie, was kindly donated to me last year by Alex K as a birthday gift. I love these images and they are on my ever-growing wish list.
The image was coloured using Copic Sketch markers:
  • Hair: E13, E35, Y08
  • Skin: E00, E21, E51
  • Jacket: E57, E39, RV21
  • Eyes/Wings: YG17, Y08, N3
  • Flowers: V12, RV21, R20, BV31
  • Outline: V12, BV31, N3
 and matted onto the Dauphin paper from the Basic Grey Eva paper pad.

A strip of the Aristocrat paper was matted onto the Dauphin paper and a length of Anita's olive green grosgrain ribbon was added around it. This was then matted across a panel of the Versailles paper from the same paper pad.

The sentiment panel was created by stamping onto white card using the 'Happy' and 'Birthday' stamps from the Elzybells Swirly Sentiments stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black archival pigment ink and matted onto the Dauphin paper. A green Prima paper flower was coloured using Copic markers:
  • Prima flower: YG17, Y08, E57, R39, N3
 and a large dusky pink Papermania brad was added to the centre and attached to the panel.
Highlights were added to the image using the Papermania Snow White gel pen.

Here are the challenges that I shall be entering this card into:
