Hello everyone. Thankyou for joining with me again to have a look at todays project. I have gone back to the beautiful Bohemian Bouquet by Denise Boddey.

I adore this range and have been playing with the bohemian lady images. I have actually used this lady in another card project using the 6x6 pad, however today I am working with the 12x12 images.
If you toss up whether to by the 6x6 or 12x12 paper pads, I find so much flexibility in both, so usually buy them both. You then have the differing scales to work with that all compliment each other. I also love to do a larger card for special occasions. These are great if you have multiple people who want to sign it and the receiver could also display it on a wall as a decoration.

In addition to the 12x12 papers and some fussy cutting to make my foliage, I have teamed the designs with the new Couture Creations chipboard designs. I hope you enjoy. K x




There are lots of layers but the card is still relatively flat and easy to manage.
First, cut the image of the lady, lightly distressing the edges.
Next, cut a large patterned base, 13.2cm wide x 20.7cm high. Ink in a red ink and distress the edges to show the white edge through the inking. As pictured below cut all the foliage from the centre to use to embellish with.
Create a mat for the large pattern in 'Jungle' green, 14cm wide x 21.5cm high. Ink the edges in a white.
Create the card base from the red 'Garnet', 22.5cm high x 30cm wide. Score and fold in half and ink all the edges in white, inside and out.
Cut a medium mat, 19cm high x 10cm wide. Ink the edges in green and lightly roughen up the edges. Include all the foliage as pictured, cutting around the leaves and flowers.
Cut a small mat for the lady to sit on, 17cm high x 7.5cm wide. Flip the paper to use the reverse pattern. Ink in green and lightly rough up the edges.



Attach the lady to the small mat and add some white muslin around the edges. Cover behind the whole panel with 3d.
Attach some green muslin behind the medium mat and add 3d behind the whole panel.
Attach the large patterned mat to the Jungle, then to the Garnet card base.

Now we are ready to embellish!

Paint up the flourish and ink it to give some shading.
Cut the 'Love' from the chipboard panel. Paint the base in a red, then dip into the Rose glitter powder.

Attach the flourish then arrange the flowers overlapping the top.
Attach the smaller flower in the top corner together with the leaves and petal.

Using the Pearl Mica powder, water it down and with a thin brush paint the chipboard and foliage and anything else you would like to have a pearlescent shimmer.


Attach the pearls into the centres of the flower for a pop of colour and a little more dimension.

Don't forget the inside to follow through with your design. Use one of the 12x12 sheets, cut, ink, score and attach to the inside.
