I decided to keep a simple theme going on this next card.
For this one I used my Christmas Candles image, which was coloured using my watercolour pencils. I splodged some yellowish ink in the corners to blend out some of the whiteness, then layered it onto some patterned paper that was printed out in a similar yellow tone.
The text and the border were also printed out (along with the image). I cut a flower using a Marianne die and some lovely pearlescent coppery card, plus some white to which I added some inky bits. This was attached to the card using a copper brad. Last bit was to add some bling, in the shape of some gold gems.
A closer view of the image:
The splodgy corners were achieved using a stippling brush and ink. Just pick up a wee bit of ink and swirl it about on the paper until you have your desired effect.
It didn't go as I had planned it on this card though. The brush kept on leaving bits of itself behind stuck to the ink and the card, so it was all a bit rough in the end!! I managed to scrape most of it off, but it left some bigger splatts which you can still see, sadly.
I do have a couple more cards to show you all, but I'll save those for a later date. Don't want to overload you with piccies do I??!!! LOL. Catch ya later peeps. Hope you have a great Sunday!
