Our Challenge for you at Elphine House this week is ‘Punched or Handmade Flowers’ I’ve chosen ‘It’s a Boy’ by Elizabeth Bell fro Elphine House Australia and created this pretty card:

its a boy

My image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Copic Express Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E55, E53, E51 clothes: B34, B32, B000, B0000, E55, E53, E51, E50 I have randomly added Frantage Shabby Blue embossing powder for a soft and shabby effect.

The sweet die cut flowers are created with my Magnolia Doohickey Doily Flower die. The flower on the right has a pretty pearl brad for the centre to finish it off.
