And this is the digital image
Ok, so now Im off to play with real ink and paper!!!!
|I added the wash and diamante hearts, but the rest is digital.|
|The phone image is a freebie from a magazine, stamped and paper pieced using Authentique paper.|
The lace border stamp is from Kaisercraft and I used various Distress markers. The sentiment is from Hot off the Press.
Hope you like it!
|The colours don't match the Case Study, but the overlapping colours hopefully echo the inspiration.|
Here is the candle holder
|Actually now that I think about it, the card is very appropriate, because we've had 3 days of rain and the sun is shining today!|
Happy weekend everyone!
PS: I'm working on another version of this, because I was annoyed with the red glitter not staying in place, but I may not get it finished as I'm off to have some tests in hospital and may be out of action for a couple of days.
|This is Jocelyn's absolute stunner!|
|And this is mine. I hope I get the chance to make another non-virtual card on the weekend.|
|I painted the grungeboard with gesso, embossed it and then used gelatos - I love the creamy effect and the mottled look of the embossing. The christmas tree is chipboard embossed with opals thiock embossing powder. This looks very homemade, unlike Kelly's masterpiece, but my daughter likes it so I'm sure it will be part of her holiday themed room at Christmas.|
|I don't have all that many coloured embossing powders and the lighter green is a bit to light, but I quite like|
effect. I used washi tape for the brown.
The balloon stamps are from Hampton Art and the sentiment is from Stamp It.
|I used pan pastel on the bird die cut and then stamped with Hero Arts background stamp using peeled paint distress ink. I used a dauber, a tiny cotton wool ball, a pen lid and a dot stamp for the circles.|
|The banner was stamped and clear embossed with a Hero Arts background stamp. Then I coloured it with distress inks and gelatos. When it was dry, I added the yellow dots with perfect pearls.|
I kept thinking I should add more, but in the end I left it CAS, because the stamping was the feature.
|First I dry embossed the aqua panel. Then I used gelatos and perfect pearls on an ATC size canvas board.|
Next I white embossed the metal embellishment. The butterfly was made previously by stamping on shrink plastic.
The sentiment is my favourite from Papertrey Ink.
|If you look closely you will see that Jocelyn has added die cuts - this is such an amazing card!|
|I used distressed inks, salt and perfect pearls to get a textured and shimmery look.|
The flower image is from Hero Arts and the background stamps are from a Pink Paislee set.
