Lili's Little Fairies - Monochrome

Hiya!!!! I'm Baack! 
Did ya miss me? LOL!
Like I said, its a busy old start to the day.. I am back with you share this week Lili's little fairies next challenge. this week the theme is monochrome. this can be a tricky one, but I sure enjoyed the challenge.

Now this little sweetie is called "Rosie Posy", she is coloured with my spectrums using EB7,EB5,EB2,EB1,GB10,GB8,GB6.&GB1 then a touch of TN3,TN2,PP2,& FS4 for the face.

 the papers are ( again) my newly rediscovered papers from pink Petticoat called "Old Fashioned Girl".. you can get them for half price at the moment too.... and there are oodles of yummy designs.  they are all matted on kraft card. The doily is inked with Brushed Corduroy DI, the punch is MS, scrap of lace and button twine to tie it, from the ribbon girls. the sentiment is LOTV sentiment tags. thats it really.. simple. 
so, for a little more inspiration pop over to see the rest of my talented teamies creations, and check out the fabby prize...

  17. Hello Lis

    I stumbled across your blog. Always a pleasure seeing another crafter getting pleasure from what they do.

    Your cards are more sophisticated than anything I have done.

    I sometimes make my own Christmas cards, I make lino cuts and print them on my old hand press.

    Im'e a gilder and use gold leaf and imitation gold leaf rather a lot.

    Have you thought of gilding onto paper?

    It's really quite easy to gild onto paper, there are now modern gold sizes that are simple to use, and there are various ways to create antique and distressed finishes as well., like the crackle glaze and antique glaze.

    If you have a moment, pop over to my site, there is quite a lot about gilding onto paper, in particular there is an old bookbinders recipe which you can use to make really authentic looking imitation vellums and parchment papers from ordinary papers.

    Good luck to us all.
