Please help me welcome a new follower, Darlene of Dar's Crafty Creations. We met over at the Snippets Playground and do give yourself a treat by checking out her wonderful cards. Additionally, if you've joined recently as a follower, and I didn't give you a welcome here on a blog post, please do contact me via a comment. I would like to add all of my new followers to the data base that I will soon be using to gift some blog candy. If I don't know you are following, then I can't include you in the count, and we surely wouldn't want that!!!
Today's card has been received by the recipient, so thought I'd share it with my sweet blogging buddies. Here goes:
This is an old wooden stamp and one that I used a lot when I was learning to shade with copics. I still have a difficult time leaving 'white space' on an image, and apparently my eye doesn't like to see strong contrast. (which is what makes an image appear much more dimensional..I tend to color in a more subtle fashion. Then have to look at what I've done, try to go back and do some darker shading. Sometimes it works, sometimes not!). This is one of my favorite rose images though.
- S/B beaded oval to cut the image, a light Distress Ink green for the outer shading.
- Elizabeth Craft die sentiment - cut several layers for dimension, with the top layer being cut from a snippet of glitter gold.
SU embossing border on each side, and some pretty lace for the top trim.
Hope you like this one. Have a super nice day. Warm hugs & thanks for popping in.
