Meet Blossom. Blossom is my entry for the Graphicus challenge for April. The challenge colours were Pink and Green and the subject was Blossom.
I thoroughly enjoyed creating Blossom and seeing her come to life. I felt the only place I could photograph her was in the garden amongst the Forget-me-nots. I am not sure whether the background is too busy so I have also used the old oil tank as a back drop. Which do you think is better?
The rubber stamps I used on the dress and the ballet pumps was from the Damask Backgrounds. The lace design stamped onto the silk fabric and used for her gloves was from the Damask Squares themeplate. The flowers were from the Poppy Collage and Daisy collage themeplates. I just love these flowers printed onto coloured paper. They create a good grunge look. The paper had been coloured first with pink and green glimmer mists. The other papers used where from the K & Co Classic Boxed set. Blossom was further embellished with gems.
Blossom's face was stamped from a recent Guild stamp and was cut from the jesters face.
