Rose Budd Vintage Book Card

It's challenge day again over on the Graph'It Marker blog and today we're all "Blondes". We want to see strawberry blondes, peroxide blondes, infact as long as it's blonde we want to see it! Remember you don't need to use Graph'It Markers to enter.

Whilst I'm here can I also point you in the direction of our DT call, all of the details are on the blog and you have until the 14th July 2014 to decide if you want to apply. I really hope that some you will consider applying.

Anyway, onto my inspiration project. It's been ages since I've been inspired to make one of these book cards, but as soon as I saw the new Rose Budd Collection from Polka Doodles, I knew in an instant that I had to make one as one of my samples for the Create & Craft TV launch. My main difficulty with this card was whittling down the elements to use as there are just so many gorgeous ones to choose from!

I used one of the ready made backgrounds for the main imagery of the card and added some furniture to the room scene using dimensional glue. I've used Glossy Accents on the window panes and Stickles Glitter Glue on the curtain edges.

All of the additional elements on the card with the exception of the ribbon and lace can be found on the CD. The images have been coloured with Graph'It Markers.

Colours used:
Skin: 4110, 4115, 4120, 4135, 4145
Female Hair: 1270, 3245, 3255
Male Hair: 1110, 1130, 1270
Dress: 8250, 8280, 8290, 4170
Suit: 9100, 9401, 9403, 9406, 9501, 9504, 9506, 9909, 0000

Thanks for stopping by this week.
