So I was mooching around the ipad earlier today and found these photos of a card I made a while ago with the intention of blogging it it then matters medical took over so here it is!
So these beauties have remained unused for 3 years until a few weeks ago when I got the urge to take them out of the packet instead of just stroking them and putting them away again! What I love about them are the little bits of foliage, stones and extra elements to add to your design, it can be a different stamped image every time you use them!
I stamped with black Memento so that I could use my Promarkers for colouring and this was one of those projects where I decided to go monochrome so I got out my Ice Greys and started to add some tone to the design.
Next I got out some of my beautiful Cosmo Cricket papers that I got years ago and have kept in the stroking pile – it’s my ambition to use a lot of my stash instead of buying or printing more! Once I’d done a little matting and layering I changed my mind about the greys and got out some coloured promarkers – I love that with alcohol pens you can change your mind and just colour over the top! You can see why I added colour can’t you?!
I absolutely adore these dies, there are two versions of it – the Crafting.co.uk one and the Hobbycraft one. They have been designed to work beautifully together and create the most stunning embellishments.
Here’s the finished card, hope you like:
