Center Step Card Featuring Saniya Time Ethereal Enchantress

Hi everyone!   

Today I am showcasing one of Heather Valintin's digis from her Enchantress line.  She is called Sainya Time Ethereal Enchantress!  Isn't she fabulous!  Perfect for those "time" related cards and projects.  

Featuring Sanya Time Ethereal Enchantress

All colouring was done with Copic markers with the exception of the Roman numbers and hands on the little clocks. I used a fine Sharpie black pen for them. The white lines on the hour glass were done with Uni-ball Signo white pen.

Saniya Time Ethereal Enchantress needed something to sit on so I added the hour glass.  Why an hour glass? No reason other than it was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw her!

The hour glass is actually a wingding that I edited in Corel Draw.  In order to have Saniya sit on the hour glass I created a transparent background around the original digi in Photoshop, saved it as a png file then merged the two together and saved them as a grouped jpeg file.  

List of colours used on Sanya Time Ethereal Enchantress

The paper is by Crate Paper from their Sweet Branch Collection called Blossom.  It has been in my stash forever.  The stick pin leaves are from one of Heathers Crafter's Candy Boxes as are the little crystal beads. The keys are from Michaels and all other embellishments are from my stash.

This center step card is a first for me.  I started with a 12" x 6" sheet of card stock.  See the template below.  Fold on the dotted lines, cut on the solid lines from 2" to 7".

Peacock Etheral Enchantress Card

The challenge this month was to follow a Mardi Gras theme.  How fun is that!  Feathers, bright colours, glitter .. what's not to like!  

I am showcasing Peacock Etheral Enchantress by artist Heather Valentin.  

Isn't she fabulous! 

Mardi Gras Theme card by Colours and Cards with Peacock Etheral Enchantress

Peacock Etheral Enchantress  

Peacock Enchantress is coloured with Copic markers (recipe card below) and lavishly embellished with glitter paper, feather, flowers, beads, stickles and even a couple of butterflies.  All embellishments and paper are from my stash.  

Using feathers on a card was a first for me.  I must admit to liking the soft look they create here.  The butterflies are sitting on a die cut Rococo Petites Acorn Swirl which I cut with the Sizzix BigKick.

Pop over to the Color N Craft Anything Goes Blog and check out all the DT Mardi Gras makes.  Better still, why not add your latest make for a chance to win this digi from Lacy Sunshine.

Thanks for stopping by.  Feel free to post a comment.  I would love hear from you.
