A study in brown
The challenge this week at Creative Corner is to make a Christmas card. So come and join us and get one step nearer to completing your cards.
As this Lili of the Valley image is of a vintage looking character I thought I would just use browns on my card. I printed the background paper using the La Pashe CD ROM 'Christmas with the Wrinkles' and the added vintage photo distress ink to it. This was then matted and layered onto brown mirri card and white card.
I coloured image called 'Festive Lantern' using Spectrum Noir pens, added distress inks to the edges and glittered it. I then matted it onto brown mirri card fixing it at a slight angle.
The words for the sentiment were cut from brown mirri card using Tattered Lace dies and glued to gold mirri card which had been cut using a Spellbinders label 4 die. I then added glitter to the top of the letters to simulate snow before attaching it to the card.
