Isn't it always a 'feel good' moment when you need a card to send and you actually have one to do so?
My sister's anniversary is early next week, so needed to get a card in the mail to her today.
Image is from Penny Black - full of glee.
I started by embossing the image onto some Strathmore Mixed Medium 140lb watercolour paper with white embossing powder. I pulled out my Zig Clean markers to colour. Rather than add the ink directly to the paper and watercolour, I added the marker to an acrylic block and picked up the colour with a wet paint brush. Since these markers are very vibrant in colours it was easier to get a transition from light to dark areas by doing it this way. Once the flowers were dry I went around them with a couple shades of grey.
I used PTI - Leaf and sprig die for the grey border.
Finished off with some sequins and a bow.
Have a wonderful day!
