Long time no see! I've been a bit busy the last few weeks, what with Mother visiting and then trying to figure out how to make a new web store for my images.
But, I do have a make for you.
It is my DT piece for Haunted Design House who's theme this week is:
pick your favourite embellishment, and use ONLY that embellishment on your project.
Hmmmm. that got me thinking!
Well, I am a fan of metal embellies, and I do happen to use those little stick-on nail heads quite a bit, so that is the embellie I chose to use.
In keeping with the metal feel, I chose to go a bit Steampunk for this make, and I designed a new image too! Here it is -
She will be in the Delicious Doodles Store on Wednesday.
I kept the card fairly simple.
A black embossed base with gold rub-on smeared round the edges.
The dp is my own design, 'Steampunk Paper' which I fiddled with for the colour in my graphics programme. The original comes in a black and grey colour scheme.
I added a couple of strips of black card embossed with cogs and wheels and smeared in that gold rub-on again. I cut a frame with my spellbinders die, and added some blue paper behind it.
The Steampunk Mermaid image was coloured with my watercolour pencils, scanned back into my compy then printed, fussy cut and layered up with foam pads. Last job was to add my nail-head embellies!
Here is a closer view of the coloured image :
Right, MUST go and sort out this new shop thingy. I'm a bit nervous about it tbh, hope I get it right!
