PIERRETTE - IMAGINE THAT DT INSPIRATION



Hello Everyone..

This is one of those projects that I really love..it took a long time and I struggled  with thinking of what to add, then suddenly the penny drops and you add what you need to and away you go into crafting heaven..well...that's what happens in my room.

This gorgeous girl is from IMAGINE THAT DIGI STAMP and her name is PIERRETTE




I knew I wanted to play with her the moment I saw her and I had a wonderful time...

This is a pre coloured image that I blew up to the full height of an A4 sheet of water colour paper..then fussy cut her out..


The background was done with Gelatos in reds...blues and white..loads of water and just kept layering the colour up..

I added texture paste through stencils....washi tape....spotty stamps and lettering..and had the red gems on standby...

Then I came to a standstill as this beautiful image kept fading ionto the background and I just could not get her back..



Then I found this paper in my drawer...it is very thick double sided paperfrom  Craftwise "Romance Papers"...and I fussy cut out the flowers and shaded them withmy  big brush markers...


I also added a bit of white gel pen for highlights...and was very very pleased...





On her face she had a teardrop so I added a little teardrop gem...





A bit closer here...



This is the FABulous set...and you can find it HERE



So there we go..hope you love her as much as me and thank you so much for stopping by...

Luv CHRISSYxx
