I have used a 6x6 Scalloped Cardblank and the chose a backing paper to match the lilac colours in the Image, Matt&Layering using Kraft Cardstock to colour match with the key and watch. I have also used a piece of centura Pearl for a layer behind the image I love the pearlescent look of this cardstock x
The paper roses were white and cream but I coloured them using the R20 & R22 Copic Markers to tie in with the colouring of the card. The leaves I used a Joycrafts Punch and Coredinations Cardstock in a green similar to the green leaves in the Image.
The Bow die is from Joycrafts I cut this using Kraft card, sanded the edges using a nail file for texture curled with a bone folder for depth.
The Pocket Watch Die is from Joycrafts I cut this twice, once from Kraft card and once from Centura pearl, I then cut just the face from the centura pearl and inked the edges using Whisper Pink Ink Pad, then attached this to the front of the Kraft card watch using a tiny bit of pinflair glue gel.
The Daisy Embellishments I made using a set of Joycrafts Blossom Dies cut from Centura Pearl Cardstock I inked the edges using Whisper Pink ink Pad from Whispers to match the blushed daisies that I coloured in the Image, the centres are Yellow Mini Brads from my Stash x
I fussy cut the Digi Image using a pair of sharp scissors and the curled the Image slightly usign a bone folder and attached to the card front using Pinflair Glue Gel, I then tucked a piece of Pink Mesh behind the Digi. All the Embellishments are attached using pinflair. I added a few Coils for texture these are paper covered wire wrapped around a paint brush handle to create the spiral.
The Sentiment is a Freebie Stamp from a Magazine i matt&layered this using the Lilac backing paper and rounded the corners using the Small Corner Rounder Punch from Xcut
