DTC #83 - I've been framed

Happy Tuesday!!

Hope you had a great start of the week!
It's time for a new challenge over at Digital Tuesday, it's Shelly's turn to host this week and the challenge we have for you is called

I've been framed

Include some sort of frame on your card.

I used an image from our sponsor, Robyn's fetish, who also generously let the Design Team play with some of her images. This one is called Poppy Fairy.

The image has been printed on couture 80lb card stock and then colored with derwent coloursoft pencils blended with baby oil. I made a "frame" with a Martha Stewart around the page punch (layered arches) and then adhered that to a white rectangle.

I had the Designer Paper forever in my stash, but never used. It's by My Minds Eye. The sentiment is from stampin up (warm wishes - retired in the US), I punched it out with a word window punch and then layered it on a small punched oval. To finish this card off I did some paper piercing on the white paper strip and around the image, added a little bit of ribbon and of course I had to add glitter to the fairy's wings.

Here's a closeup of the image.

Here's some other challenges I am entering this to:


Hope you'll join in the fun this week for a chance at a fantastic prize from Robyn's Fetish.

Have a great day.
Ellie.
