Hi again everyone, here's my card for Colour Create where this time our gorgeous colour combo of red, yellow, black and white with an option of checks and flowers has been chosen by our lovely Janiel, so thanks Janiel, I really enjoyed your theme. There's some fantastic inspiration from all my DT friends on the blog so I hope you'll be able join us. Our prize for this challenge is sponsored by me :D and the winner will receive their choice of six digi images.
I've used one of my new images which I hope to have up for sale in the digi shop later today and this one is 'Harvest Fayre'. I printed out the image on watercolour paper and then water coloured with distress inks. I've also tried the cracked glass technique for the first time and I'll definitely use this one again, it gives a great look over an image and is so easy to do. I think it's quicker if you have the ultra thick type of clear embossing powder, I had to use five layers of embossing powder, but it was no hardship, I'm really addicted to watching it melt :D. I then popped it in the freezer for half an hour and bent it as soon as I took it out and all the cracks appeared. I've realised it would have looked better if I'd remembered to sponge some distress ink into the cracks! For the rest of the card I've used black, yellow and white bazzill card, I used a big hounds tooth check stamp and black ink to stamp randomly on the card blank, and I didn't ink every time I applied it to give a mottled effect. The black layer is punched with the MS flourish border punch and I added the red check ribbon, some doodling with black and white gel pens and the pearls and flowers to finish. TFL and enjoy your Thursday, I'm off for an eye test today and no doubt will come back with even thicker glasses :D!!
