Skating Fancy Sunbonnet Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #46)

Hi everyone :-D 

My second post today...

Today a new Aloha Friday Challenge starts at Kitty Bee Designs.

New challenge for this fortnight is #46 - Girly Cards.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Bugaboo Digi Stamps, with an awesome prize for our random winner: 7 digital images of winner's choice.

For this challenge I made this Skating Fancy Sunbonnet Card, using our sponsor's beautiful image 'Fancy Sunbonnet Winter'.

Image on the card is paper pieced and for this one I used 7 images.

I printed 6 same images on white paper (160 grams), colored parts I needed with colored pencils, blended colors with baby oil, fussy cut pieces, colored edges with permanent pen and glued all pieces together. Here is a photo of all pieces I used.

I printed one more image on a piece of design paper and glued pieced image over it.

I distressed card base and all paper layers with Tim Holtz's Distressed Ink Brushed Corduroy. I added acrylic texture paste to the card and when it was dry, smeared it with pearl maker. I also made dots with pearl maker around the image. When all was dry, I decorated card with two paper roses, synthetic snowballs and die-cut butterflies, and also added some pearl maker to all elements, to create snowy look.

Card dimensions are 114 mm x 114 mm (4 1/2" x 4 1/2").
