My Project for this
week is:-
Baroque Clara (with Frame) Digi Stamp
(one of our sponsors)

To begin with I chose a pre-cut Craft Card
Then I cut a 8.5x14.5cm Rectangle of Cream Card
and used the Kaleidoscope of Butterflies Die
Over the top of it I dusted it with Antique Linen Distress Ink
(Tim Holtz)
to make the embossed bits stand out.

Next I printed off the Image twice
on White DC Paper.
coloured the Images
using my Promarker Pens.

                                               Vanilla                  - Skin

                                               Blush                    - Skin
                                               Satin                     - Skin
                                               Sunkissed Pink   - Cheeks
                                               Coral                     - Lips
                                               Antique Pink       - Lips
                                               Sandstone            - Hair
                                               Tan                       - Hair
                                               Caramel               - Hair
                                               Cinnamon            - Hair
                                               Raw Sienna         - Hair
                                               Lush Green         - Eyes
                                               Warm Grey 2     - Feathers
                                               Warm Grey 4     - Feathers
                                               Warm Grey 5     - Feathers
                                               Metallic Gold      - Frame
                                               Metallic Copper - Frame

I then Cut the Image out in the Oval Frame
 to fit inside oval of the Die Cut.
 And then fussy cut out the Frame 
to fit on top of the Image,
over the Die cut Cream Card.
I went around all ot the edges 
with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
(Tim Holtz)

 I added a Jute Butterfly and 2 Jute Flowers
(Jute Shapes - Hobbycraft)
and a Jute Bow

To the center of the Flowers 
I added 10mm Dotted Rhinestones
and on the Butterfly I added four 3mm Crystal Rhinestones
to the body .

For my final touch I added Pastel Yellow
3D Pearl Effects
to the Double Rows of Pearls on the Image.
