Elena's Birthday Card & PDCC 13




This is a birthday card for my grand-daughter Elena, she will be 14 years old on Thursday. OMG doesn't time fly. The card is very much her as she is into "grungey stuff" but at the same time it is suitable for the PDCC 13 as the colour challenge this week is dark red, turquoise, black and white. The turquoise base is a Claudine Hellmuth sticky back canvas piece which I have painted with Claudine's paints, gone over sequin waste with a snowy white dabber, mounted on to black card and stitched all the way round twice, attached the Artchix white wings and mounted the Stampotique girl. My Stampotique image I have coloured with Perfect Pearls. The tag I stamped in Brilliance Moonlight White and embossed with clear embossing powder, faux stitched in white using my Inkessentials pen, fixed a turquoise eyelet and threaded red ribbon. I attached the piece to the red card using Tim's washers and faux screws. It took ages deciding what to do and several attempts but once started it began to flow.
