Poisoned Peas Please Guest Design # 2 and Day 30

I am lucky to be able to submit a second project 
for Poisoned Peas, Please before my month
as Guest Designer for October finishes. 

It has been an honour and pleasure to have been invited to do this and 
I want to say a huge thank you to Kristy and the rest of the Design Team 
for being so helpful, gracious and welcoming.
I do hope you will visit the wonderful projects by
the team and leave them some love.  

The theme at Poisoned Peas, Please this month is

It has been great fun to visit the entrants' blogs 
and see all the lovely work.


by Ike for Smeared Ink

All Images were printed onto digital card and coloured with 
promarker pens and all backgrounds are using 
pan pastels. 
Base cards are A3 purple card and A3 lilac card
 (UK standard)

I flipped Ike's image on Craft Artist Professional 2 to provide two facing images and used the gravestone image centrally. I reduced, printed and coloured a third copy of Ike's image and used a Tim Holtz fragment to provide a feature on the gravestone. 

The single candle image I resized, recoloured on Craft Artist Professional 2 and grouped to provide
group of candles and also used it singly. 
These were printed out.
I added little chiffon flowers. 

 I used the cemetery gate image to provide a backdrop and added a banner which I typed up and cut.

Love and Peace,
Vee xx
