Well, this must be a first. I am so pleased with this card I simply had to take the photo straight away so I could put it up on the blog today! I reckon this is the first time I’ve had to post a card up here the same day I made it, lol. This week I went to the shop and bought some new toys, and coloured in my first image after following one of Alyce’s tutorials at Kit and Clowder. It is the skin and hair class I have started on and this is just lesson one, basic skin, and this image is my first colouring after watching the video. I cannot claim to be a very good student as I decided to colour an image I had laying next to me, rather than what was in the lesson, but practice is practice right! I tried to experiment with brighter colours than I normally do, with more contrast.
Anyway, for the card. I have roughened up the edges using a tool I never intended to buy.. For some reason the cashier at a shop added a completely random extra product and I only noticed the small thing after I got home and looked at the receipt. I was just too lazy to go back and figured I’d find a use for it one day. Well, I did! The papers are plain card stock, glitter card stock and Papirdesign snowflake paper. I have used a Tim Holtz die and two Martha Stewart punchers as well as flowers, pearls and lace from Wild Orchid Crafts. The beautiful image is Art by Miran, called Winter Sofia, coloured with copics and snow added using frantage. You can see what colours I used at the bottom of the post.
