Hi again folks!
Thought I would share this card with, made using my new image Wanabe Vamp, just loaded into my shop Delicious Doodles.
I have used the sketch from Midnight Madness for this card, and wanted a 'soft goth' look to go with my image. Hope it works.
I tried soooo many colour combos before settling with this one. Originally I had deep purple as the base and black on the left, but decided I have used too much purple lately, so opted to introduce some red to complement the dress.
I have used a new Martha Stewart border punch too, after my very naughty spend yesterday in my local craft shop - me bad! I also bought the little silver 'nail heads', which are sticky dots really, but they look like brads.
My paper is by Tinker & Co., (the swirly purple and pink one) which I also used for the three bits on the right of the sketch. I was going to use ribbon, but couldn't find anything suitable in my stash. BAH!! Cardstock is from the stash - black, silver mirri and pearlescent red (which I embossed and rubbed silver metallic rub-on over).
Flowers are made with leftover bits and my various flower punches, topped with some more of those brad stickers, and red gems. I also smeared the petals with some more of that silver rub-on. Just helps to lift the flowers a bit. I didn't bother with the bows and twirly bit in the end, as I couldn't figure out what to put there that matched everything else. Hope you don't mind ladies?
My image was printed large on normal white card, which I then coloured in with my watercolour pencils. I am such a messy colourer - even though it was large I still managed to go over the lines. Too impatient that's my trouble! I scanned the finished image and printed out to size on glossy photo paper, which brings out more of the colour. I meant to do another layer, but completely forgot to cut out and stick before I took the photo - duh!! Still, looks okay to me as is.
I am also going to enter this into the challenge at Fab 'n' Funky this week, as their theme is 'Metal' (silver mirri and those brad stickers).
Right, seriously need to go do some DT stuff now, and lunch, washing up, tidying. . . why can't the days be longer . . . ??
