Believe in Yourself - Fran Chalmers

 Hi everyone!

Today I have made a card with this beautiful lady which encourages us all to believe in ourselves! I hope you like it!

Firstly, I made a background by using distress inks and a small brayer straight onto the card.  I like the textured look I get when I do this and, of course, it is a very quick way of doing a background! I used Peacock Feathers and Twisted Citron.

I then stamped out the images I needed to colour and cut out, and stamped onto the card the one that had detail I wouldn't be able to cut out properly.

Next I added some interest to the background by stencilling some flowers

and some lines to add more colour contrast too

and some edging to add more texture and colour

I stuck the other elements onto the card, and stamped the sentiment.  I coloured the wings with a Gellyroll Stardust pen and glued them at the base and tip only.

Lastly, I added some enamel dots in the centre of the flowers.  

I really enjoyed making this card so I hope you like it :)
