I made up this card today and I think the artwork is stunning!
It was a mini kit I bought at the weekend from www.scrapbookingmad.co.uk and was designed by someone I've not heard of before Karen Wyeth but I will certainly be on the look out for more that's for sure! The kit is called Twilight Owls should anyone be interested.
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
White 10”x7” card blank
oil on water water
fancy edge trimmer blade
die cut ornate border
silver flat back gems
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card …
The blank card was a bought one from what was once called Cupcake Crafting and measures 10”x7” so a great space to work with.
The oil on water card was trimmed to fit the card blank leaving a narrow border all round then stuck in place with double sided tape.
After cutting the base image from the sheet I trimmed the edges with the fancy edge blade in the trimmer only to then find when I stuck my decoupage on, the flower pieces needed to be fancy edged too...easy done!
Once the topper was in place I had the right hand side free so made use of a lovely border die I bought at the weekend, cut it from white card then coloured blue with Tim Holtz distress Ink pad then sprayed with perfect pearl mists for a lovely pearly shine.
I stuck 3 lovely black back flat silver gems to the ornate bar.
Once all the decoupage was added to the image I added glossy accents to the owls eyes and talons then to the pink flowers at the bottom.
And that is your card for today!
I love the kit and feel sure it was available in other colours so guess where I am going next....
This is another card that will be in the to use or for sale box.
Catch you again next time – same place folks
