No new card to show you today I'm afraid, working two half days on the trot is tiring right now! I had this card in my photos folder which I made for the christening of the daughter of someone I work with last year, so I thought I'd share it.
I used a stamp from lili of the valley and my trusty copics. I read online that the recent colouring book trend has taken the colouring pencils and marker manufacturers by suprise and that a lot of them are expanding but struggling to meet demand at the moment. I also found out that copic test all their markers by hand!
Back to the card after that digression, I cut the image out with spellbinders oval nestie and whilst it was still in the die added a little spun sugar distress ink and did the same to the sentiment. I cut the pink oval mat out using a grand spellbinders oval set, can't remember the name of it as the packaging is long gone. I embossed some centura pearl card with the tied together embossing folder and added gems at each join. It still bugs me when I look at the bottom line of embossing, gems or no gems? I added a hint of glamour dust to the image and arranged some paper roses from wild orchid crafts and die cut green paper leaves from Sue Wilson faux quilled leaves set, I think.
Regardless of the gem issue, the recipient loved the card and said she was going to frame it, so I think she liked it!
Day off tomorrow, so hopefully some crafting will take place. See you then!
