Happy Monday to one & all, hope everyone had a great weekend. Today’s card is for the new Magnolia vs Stampavie challenge – lace & pearls. I wasn’t sure about this at first; I knew I had a piece of lace – bought for a card that never got made – but as far as I knew I had no pearls, other than adhesive ones & a few pearl brads. So I did what all good cardmakers should do – I searched my stash & BINGO! I found a string of tiny pearls, I have no idea where I got them from, but they must be from when I first started crafting.
I am trying very hard at the moment to use colours that work together, so I spent quite a while putting papers together, before I coloured the image – which I’ve decided I’ve messed up. I should have used the paler blue on Tilda’s tights & vice versa, the more I look at it, the worse it looks. I think tomorrow I’ll take this image off the card & replace it with one that I’ve coloured better. I used a cotton bud to smudge Versafine ‘Vintage Sepia’ ink around a piece of watercolour paper, then matted & layered it onto cardstock from my stash, before threading the lace through it & attaching the image with 3D foam pads.
