Crafty boots challenge - Material

Good morning and welcome to another Crafty Boots Challenge
the theme for this fortnights challenge is material which was chosen by the
lovely Tracie.
I don't know where the time is going, but apart from my DT
projects I haven't done any crafting.
For This card I used Tilda with ballet shoe ( I really love her )
also for this card I have gone for a clean and fresh look , this was
a shock to my system and I really don't know how it stayed like
this as I usually end up flooding the image with colour but
I am pleased with the little amount of colour I used.

                                                            Close up of image

                                                          Close up of the felt flowers

I was a bit stuck on what material I could use so I went for felt flowers
which are cut using spellbinders - posy patch dies ,and I sat the large flower
on some tulle and then added a button to the centre of them.
The papers are Maja Designs - summer breeze ,love these papers and
was almost in tears using it lol.
The image is coloured with copics and prisma pencils ( even the skin)
another shock to my system lol.
Other items I used are - Martha Stewart punch
                                       Doohickey die
                                       charm, pearls and pins
                                       Doohickey  tag
                                       Seam binding ribbon
                                       Spellbinders oval dies
                                       Sewing machine
                                       mirri card
I hope you can join in with this fun challenge and please pop
over to the fab DT ladies to see what Gorgeous creations they have come
up with.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog.
Hugs Emma xx

Morning Emma

Ooooh this is a gorgeous card.... love the image and your layout is absolutely perfect... love your use of that tulle behind too!

Know what you mean about using different colouring techniques/colours... When we get so used to one way, it's sooooo difficult to change!
