When I saw the inspiration photo at Cupcake Inspirations it immediately made me think of the bright colours and lavish prints of sari fabric.
I remembered that I had a really interesting pack of 'papers' that I had had for absolutely ages. They are not actually paper- they are made in India from cloth recycled from the garment manufacturers, but I had never had the right project for them until now. I found matching cardstocks from my stash and followed the sketch at I love Promarkers.
The image of the lady in a sari is from Melonheadz and I thought she was so perfect for this card. She has been coloured with Promarkers which give lovely strong colours.
I made the flower and swirl with Marianne dies. I gave the flower lots of dimension by curling it and using 3D foam between the layers. Papertake Weekly are looking for homemade flowers for their challenge this week. A few silver mirri Candi and a couple of gems complete the look.
This is really different from my usual style but I really enjoyed making it. However I put off doing some cards that I really need to get on with now!
Hi, I'm Alison, known as Tillymint to my Mum and Dad- hence the name of my blog! I've always enjoyed anything creative. I have been making cards for a few years now and have recently started crocheting. I live in West Yorkshire, England, with my husband, our 10 year old son and our puppy, Bryn. I love sharing my creations and hearing what you think, so please leave a comment!
Sorry to sound like the teacher that I am! But... copying isn't fair.
I love sharing my cards with you and reading your comments. I am happy for you to take inspiration from them but please do not directly copy them or claim them as your own work.
I created the background, header and post dividers for this blog myself, using free papers and elements downloaded from the Stuff to Scrap April Blog Train, called 'Spring Picnic'. Thank you to all the designers who contributed mini kits to this.

Summer designs wonderful digi scrapping kits and then gives them away! (So long as they are only used for personal use.)
