Birthday Card - F

I am well and truly making good use of my day off today - one canvas complete and now a birthday card.

For this card I used cream hammered card as the basis.  I then covered more cream card with distress inks for the initial layer.  I did the same thing to another piece of card using a lighter ink and splashed it with water - let it dry completely before stamping and heat embossing.  I used three different archival inks to colour the stamo and birthday sentiment and used clear embossing powder. Finally I coloured the image (Chocolate Baroque) using copics (using similar colours in relative to the colours I used on the stamped image).




I do hope you have enjoyed your visit and please call again.

Hugz and love

    Thanks for playing at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, but I'm afraid that your entry is not eligible for one of the prizes, as you have not used a Penny Black stamp.
