Non Cute card for a change


I actually broke out my embossing powders and Ecoline inks last night to make a birthday card or two for some friends next week.


How to:

Stamp the Savvy Dahlia both in Perfect Puleria & Aegean Blue, and tie around the purple ribbon.

Then prepare the background image by stamping the heart image from the Magenta Nov/Dec Stamp Club, and then emboss with Chiaro Flo embossing powder.

Paint over the whole thing with the Magenta Ecoline, allowing light and dark areas.  When dry, iron off the EP to leave the white image.  Stamp the vine from the Nov/Dec pack, and colour in with G16 marker, add Peralidoodles to the small dots on the image.

Over stamp the Magenta flower image in Palette Noir ink, and add the metal flowers/Prima.  Matt onto the Razzleberry Light cardstock, and ink with Pefect Pulmeria Versamagic.  Mount on the front of the card.

Place tiny dots of Perlidoodles in both Pink and Pearl in the centres of the stamped Dahlia images.  Also add three larger dots of Pearlidoodles in the top and bottom righthand edges.

As usual, you can click on the image to view larger.

Quick Colouring Exercise

it’s for another Christmas tag, not sure if I’m completely happy with the gold Sakura pen I used to give some definition to the snowmen….but it might grow on me when it’s made into a tag.

Coloured with COPICS (Chinese Orange (YR09); Deep Magenta (RV17); Lime Green (G21); Yellow Green (YG03) & Olive (G99). As I mentioned, I coloured just down the edges of their bodies with a Gold Sakura Mettalic pen, and washed inwards.

Stamp is by Magenta.

I really do love the Deep Magenta and Lime Green together though – fabulous combo.
