Here is my card for this DT call. After some busy weeks I finally surfed round my favourite sites and almost missed this call. So CJ, thanks for extending this call. I feel so lucky....
The stamp is Lou from CJ's Cowgirl up Stamps and I love her. From the moment I looked at her I knew what color I wanted to use for her. The challenge was to find matching papers... well that succeded as well.. :-) I printed Lou twice. One I colored with Derwent pencils and Terpetin, the lace is made with stickles, the other one was cut out for masking. The background of the colored Lou is with fired brick and spiced marmalade from Tim Holz, the stamps are from Fancy Pants in the color victorian velvet by Tim Holz. Then when this was done I took dark peony from color box and colored the background again. The flowers are cut out with my silhouette and handmade and pieced together after inking them.
I used a Martha Stewart punch for the border. Unfortunally the colors on the photo are no match for the real card. Hope that the impression of the colors is clear.

Lou is for me the Fairy Queen who brings the flowers alive after a cold winter.
