This week we are hopping along, getting to know the new Design Team
and letting our creative juices flow with
Challenge #130 - Anything Goes

The sponsor for this challenge is:
Prize: $10 Gift Certificate

~~~*~~~*~~~

Today I have used the Peony Maiden digital stamp from MoonFlower Digital Stamps, our generous sponsors this week.



I knew that I wanted to frame this delightful image, so I placed it on my Silhouette Cameo design mat and sized it to fit neatly inside the smallest oval, then made a bundle of layers to suit.

The original ornate diamond frame cut file is a freebie,
yes, I said FREEBIE,
from Monica's Creative Room called Framed Toppers 8d.
I made a panel 1/8" larger than the ornate frame, one the same size, an oval that fitted neatly under the outer edge of the oval in the ornate frame and an oval ring, 1/8" thick with a 1/8" space inside the oval of the ornate frame ... sure hope that makes sense.  In summary, the layers for the image panel are Salmon, Peony, Flamingo, black ornate frame, image panel then the final black oval ring.

I printed the image on X-Press It blending card, heat set then coloured with Copic markers.
I adhered all the layers together with liquid adhesives.



Next came the card base, which is huge at 8 x 6 13/16".  I cut two black panels, scoring the back panel 1" from the top and adhered to the front to make a top fold.  I matted the inside with three layers of pink cardstock using the same shades under the ornate frame on the image panel.

The sentiment inside is a delight die cut.

  37. How striking, Tracy! Pink and Black are always amazing together, and I forget to use that combination - the contrast makes such drama with the stark classy strength of black, and the feminine prettiness of pink! And the amazing die cut adds even more drama and flair to your creation. It's gorgeous, and gorgeously colored as well. Thank you for the opportunity to play in your BLOG CANDY! and I remember you are "O" LOL have a great week-end! hugs, de
