My Lovely Supporters

15 Jan 2015


Hi all, tonight I have a card to share with you that I finished yesterday I have used a new (to me) image from Ching-Chou Kuik she is called Rose in Storm which I thought was highly appropriate considering the awful weather we are having and apparently due to have in the coming days.
I have gone for a rather dramatic colour combo of black and yellow, I coloured the image with Graph It Markers and Copics for the skin tones.  The black cardstock I embossed with a rose embossing folder, I used my Tonic die for the trellis then added some Cosmic Black Pearl PVA for the pearls, finally I added a new Kanban floral sentiment that I got in the post yesterday and some roses and white organza bow.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Many thanks for visiting me and the lovely comments that you leave.

Karen said...

That is one beautiful card Lorraine! I really do envy your colouring skills - I must try harder lol! Fabulous colours too - nice and warm for this chilly spell. Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog too. I don't enter as many challenges these days in part because I have a load of digi stamps that I don't use often so challenges that have digital prizes don't appeal to me much. I hope you have a lovely weekend hun, and stay nice and warm too! xx
