I made this card as a special request for a Retirement card. I used an image called Deirdery's Day Off from Dr Digi. I love the humour in these images but still wanted it quite feminine.
I stuck to two patterned papers from My Minds Eye - Now & Then Collection onto a sheet the same size as the the card and attached a strip of co-ordinating Bazzill Swiss Dot. I then Die cut the circle from Spellbinders which I stuck on top of the coloured image using 3d foam so it was raised. I also drew around the die to get a slightly larger frame which I cut by hand. I paper pieced the Sunshade and towel and added glaze to her glasses, jug and Cocktail.
I used a Die-namics die to cut the Banner and added Websters pages letter stickers to spell out "Retirement" - Luckily there were just enough flags! I cut "Enjoy" from glitter paper using my Cameo machine - Which I really need to use more to its full potential!
Finally I added a ribbon bow tied with a button and twine, along with some pink gems to add the Bling.
Deirdery is coloured with the following Promarkers and Flex markers -
Skin - Spice, Coral, Soft Peach, Blush, Antique White
Hair - Baby Pink, Cerise, Lipstick Red.
Swim suit - Honeydew, Pastel Green, Frosted Jade,
Sun lounger - Cocoa, Caramel, Cinnamon.
The drink is coloured with Soft Lime, Yellow & Mustard. I then went over the top with Frozen Lake to add the Glass effect.
I also used some Warm Grey 3 to add shadow to the paper piecing.
