DeeDee's Digis - Forget Me Not

Hiya! Back with another pretty DeeDee's Digi image (from 2 different sets, in fact). Let's get started.


Background is from a Brusho playday (I think...it was on the desk so I inked & used it. Inked up an Impression Obsession CAC Script stamp with Colorbox Fluid Chalk Moss Green ink, after placing an oval mask in the center of the background.

- Oval floral shape is from DeeDee's Blooming Blessings April Digi of the month. Printed & cut out the central image portion. Did a tiny bit of shading on the pretty flowers, added some gold ink to the centers and a dab of Glossy Accents. Raised up with foam bits all around the oval.

- Vases of Forget Me Not is DeeDee's Digis Forget Me Not set which has lots of nice sentiments & papers. Fussy cut these shapes, added a little shading and gold centers, with Glossy Accents. After these were popped up on foam, used some Glossy Accents to make the vases look like ceramic. Not showing in the photo, but quite nice IRL.

- Butterfly die cut from thin aluminum that seals the top of a can of peanuts..with an Ellentina butterfly die - 2 layers of thin metal which fused together when die cut. Used some metallic colors of stamp ink on the surface, but it's not showing in the photo.

- Taylored Expressions sentiment that came as a freebie in an order, cut from 2 layers of white snippet and colored with the new Ranger Abandoned Coral pen. Tried for a color that would compliment the flowers on the the oval, and think this looked fairly close.

Wow, I love how you did your mask, Mary. Very clever with mask and your dimensional treatment is wonderful. A really gorgeous card. I am also really envious of the brush BG you used to stamp the CC Script stamp. I really need to get back to doing the mixed media. Your whole card looks good enough to frame!!

This is such a pretty image Mary and love the brusho background and the added script which complements the framed flowers perfectly. The metal butterfly and the added sentiment are beautiful finishing touches too. How clever to use the aluminium from a can lid for this. x
