INVENTORY CHALLENGE No. 18 - LAYER -IT ON, Romeo and Juliette reinvented.

Good Friday to all of you.                           (veuillez dérouler l'écran pour le texte français)
OH! Romance is in the air this morning. I have recreated the classic Romeo and Juliette balcony scene, to suit the newborn love story between Tilda and Edwin, that takes place under a window, that Tilda cannot open. She is awaiting her Prince Charming, locked in her room by her mean step-moter. She is longing for her sweet Edwin to find a way to rescue her and take her away. Here comes Edwin, but instead of a ladder he carries a rose. What is the plan the young man has in mind to rescue his sweetheart... Valentine's day is coming, and we can all imagine a happy ending for this story!
It's not only Romance that is in the air, Christina and  I are featuring our 18th Inventory Challenge, quite a simple one today: layers. No prrrroblem for me anyway, I love layers. And my card has quite a few! I hope you will be inspired to put romance in your weekend!
My adventure with this card, started a fews weeks ago, when rummaging through my ribbons. I had my hands on this wondeful vine, a gift from dear Christina at Chrismas, I still had not used it. So, I left out, on my desk, sitting there and waiting for the inspiration. I just knew what I wanted to do with it, when  I stamped the very romantic window of the new You are so special collection... I have to admit it took me all week to put the pieces together and find a way to make the 3-D look properly. I used foam sheets under my image instead of 3-d dots, in order to get the proper height! I had fun and hope you will like.
We have the pleasure of welcoming a new participant in our challenge this week, Jean. So, grab yourself a gooooood coffee or a nice tea, and hop to my dear friend and team-mate Christina, and follow your way to the other members of our team.

Bon matin à vous toutes,
Il y a de la romance dans l'air ce matin... vous vous préparez sans doute à souligner la St-Valentin, chocolat, surprise, un peu de piquant dans le quotidien quoi. Je me suis dit que Tilda ne pouvait passer cette fêtes des amoureux sous silence, j'ai donc revisité la scène classique du balcon dans Roméo et Juliette, style Magnolia! Tout a commencé avec un remue-ménage dans mes rubans. J'ai mis la main sur cette magnifique vigne en soie, cadeau de Noël de ma chère amie Christina, avec laquelle je n'avais pas encore jouée. Je l'ai donc sortie du tiroir, et installée sur ma table... elle y était depuis 2 semaines, lorsque dimanche dernier, j'encrais mes nouvelles étampes, et j'ai vu la scène. Restait à monter le tout. Je ne vous cache pas que j'y ai travaillé toute la semaine! Afin de monterles pièces en 3-D,d'une manière appropriée, j'ai utilisé de la créa-mousse.  J'espère que vous cette scène vous invitera au romantisme.
C'est aussi vendredi, jour de notre 18e Inventory Challenge, ayant pour thème, "layer-it-on", des étages!!!! en mauvais français. Il me ferait plaisir que vous alliez faire une visite à toutes mes compagnes, j'ai lié leur noms ci-haut, à leur adresse de blogs. je suis certaine que vous découvrirez des super créations, et des idées originales pour almenter votre inspiration. Bonne visite.

Tilda, and Edwin were colored wih copics. Part of the wall also with copic.
The shutters were painted with acrylic metallic paint, mixed with ink.
My flowers were sprayed with "home-made glimmer mist", I used a part of water, a part of alcool, and added drops of SU Pink Pirouette, Bravo Burgendy and a small amount of Perfect pearl.
I used my favourite SU shade: Cherry Cubbler to stamp "je t'aime" and embossed it with clear powder.

I Love You Too!!!!! I think you know I love scene cards best of all - your mind just has to create a story to go with the scene - now I wonder who is courting who - Seems like Tilda is watching Edwin wishfully and Edwin doesn't seem to notice. I love this card -- the coloring is fantastic the papers divine! Such a sweet scene and beautiful card!

J'aime vraiment l'idée du balcon de Roméo et Juliette.

J'espère que l'histoire de ta carte finira mieux que la vrai.

OMG Daniele, this is fantastic! Your card is breathtakingly beautiful! Every time I visit your blog you come up with something which blows me away! Great coloring and masking job! Gosh, I should sit down and try something as elaborate as this! Great work!
Hugs, Iulia

Iulia a dit…

Upon a closer look I saw the cutting work with the window bars.So you haven't mask it as I thought first. It's even more complicated with cutting and all. You really have a lot of patience to work on such tiny details. The result is great!
Hugs, Iulia
