Good morning my lovelies. goodness me my week off work seems to have flown by and I don't seem to have got much done but sometimes thats what time off work is for lol. We've got a new challenge starting today at We Do Doobadoo and for the next two weeks our theme is Romantic Whites. As always there are some gorgeous Dutch Doobadoo goodies up for grabs so I hope you're going to play along. I've made a little wall hanging for my DT project and used lots of Dutch Doobadoo goodies, you can find links to them all at the end of this post.
I began with some recycling some card from Christmas packaging and removed the top layer to show the corrugated side which I dry brushed with maimeri White Gesso. Next I layered up burlap, ribbon roses, lace, seam binding and a white bow to frame the focal image.
The image is from Tiddly Inks, coloured with my Graph'it markers. I love my Graph'Its they blend so beautifully but they also have a fab range of greys that work perfectly with the colours to give you loads more shades, for this image I used pink greys with skin tones for the dress and the warm greys for the suit.
I added stencilling around the image using the Dutch Doobadoo Brick stencil and Maimeri Light modelling paste.
You can see the detail a little better in this pic:
Next came lots of embellies including Dutch Doobadoo Laser Art Butterflies, button and one of the gorgeous lanters, all were embossed with Shabby White frantage powder. I die cut some hearts from kraft card and added polka dots with a White Graph'It Shake pen. to finish off I added a silver heart charm and some twine.
