Today I'm going to share with you another Earth Palette coloured card.. Featuring the gorgeous Penny Black animals :) I love these colours, don't you?? :) For an idea I started from a sketch from the very talented Katharina.. and added some more from there. I used HOTP papers and another striped I had in my stash... and water coloured the image on the same colur shades to match the DP.
I also worked on the base paper with some distress inks and Studio G clear stamps (adding some swirls ).
The bubbles and the cup in the image are heat embossed with clear powder added with glitter and then layered on brown glittery cardstock and then dark green. On top, before I made the final layer, I ued a Border punch to make the heart border. Finally stamped the PB sentiment on a left over base striped DP and cut with nesties, adding another scalloped frame from another piece of DP that is used in the card.
I finished by adding some baubles (that's how they are called are they??) :) and some faux stitching.
Thanks for taking time to look. I hope you like it and that it inspires you to use these PB lovely images. Thanks Jilly for sending me this cutie image!!
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
