Another PDC Challenge

Wow I can't believe almost a week has gone by since my last post! Luckily I have these blog challenges to keep me focused, right :-)...

PDC Challenge #92

I love this photo collage. So much inspiration here. I hope you can see the pieces that inspired my card.

I started off by using the sketch pen function on my Silhouette. The Love was sketched using the Gold Metallic pen. Next I traced an outline of the "Love" and cut it out to use it as a mask. I blended Tattered Rose Distress ink for the background of the "Love" panel. I used the Hero Arts Digi Butterfly kit to create the butterflies. I again used my silhouette to do the butterflies as "print & cuts" then colored them in with Copic R32. The pink in the Love was done with Copic R81. I will tell you the nib on my marker didn't do well with the metallic ink from the Silhouette pen. (luckily I can replace the nib). I used Copi Y28, Lionet Gold to color the pearls, a Martha Stewart Border punch and the Hero Arts Old Letter Writing for the Card base background. It's hard to see but I wanted a soft text for the background and stamped in Antique Linen.  

Thanks for stopping by, I have another card that I will try to blog later....job hunting is keeping me busy.
