Hope you're having a good Bank Holiday weekend.
Here's today's card -
Delicate, Swirl and Elegance Masks across the card, popped the pink embossing plate on top and ran through the Grand Calibur. Background done!
Fishtail Frock using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Marigold and Scarlet Flame from the Autumn Shades Set and a little Cosmic Tone from the Skin Tones Set. I cut it out using scissors and went around the edges with a Black Promarker to hide any white bits.
I cut a Spellbinders Wonky Rectangle out of White and out of Black Card. On each of them I added the Couture Creations Hyper Magical Embossing Folder at the emboss stage.
Black Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Berry Red around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
Very dramatic indeed and very elegant.

Love the effect of the masks and the bold colour xxReplyDelete
Hi Julia. Love the background effect and the rich red really does it for me. Up to now I'm using pro markers for colouring but i really think I'll invest in some drawing inks they look so fantastic.ReplyDelete
