This week - yes, several times...
But then - it's strange when you put things on sale and the cards you least expect to go are bought first...
It's just been one of those weeks...I am full of cold, have had a dreadful headache for 3 days, and the Internet has been dodgy - so why should I expect my card making to be OK??
I thought I would start with a card base and directly emboss on to it.
So... I put the image on the wrong side so it opened right to left not, left to right.
I decided to trim it and add colour to the 'deboss' side
using a felt pad and ink from green and gold ink pads.
I then 'fussy' cut it out.
I stuck this to this lovely hand made paper card base from Itsy Bitsy
an amazing crafty outlet I have discovered here in India.
I tied the bow - yes I like that.
I then started working on the coloured in sentiment - it didn't seem to go!
the gold backing behind was supposed to link up with the gold in the ornament - it looks too yellow. The greens and red Promarkers are the wrong colours...
Back to the drawing board...
This time I used gold metallic Promarker and a Holly Green.
The 'rhinestones' are 'pearls' and turquoise gems.
Do you think it works?
The rest is just stuff from my stash, the card base from Itsy Bitsy.
