Some of you caught a WIP look at this on Facebook, but here she is.. all finished up and matted, popped on foam and overhanging the stitched frame.
She’s colored with Chameleon Pens and a touch of Zig Kurecolor and Marvy Detailer. sections of the image were cut in to overlap the frame while the main image remained behind the frame. I am sure it has some fancy technical name, but heck if I know what to call it haha…I just know it’s cool. A couple of the smaller detached details were fussy cut and added to the frame where they should be in the original.
Both layers are foam padded for depth and the image is printed on Velvet Paper…. combined it gives the card a lush soft feel.
Links and supplies listed below for anyone interested.
First off a close up through my Magnifier light to show off that lush velvet texture. Traditional blending styles will not work with this…. so if you are the type who has to blend to perfection, this is not the paper for you. It works great with pencils too, but it does have a soft grainy effect look to it….so it may not suite everyone. Me….I LOVE this paper… it suits my style and tastes perfectly.
..and here is the finished card, Very CAS ( clean and simple ). I don’t like to add sentiments to cards till I plan to use them; unless I already know who the recipient is, or the occasion. Quite often I just want to use it as a note card, so I keep them sentiment free. I’m sure you have probably noticed that I am not a big fan of making overly fussy cards either and prefer to highlight the image and in some cases humorous text. It’s just my style….
..anywho .. there she is… my Autumn Kidz. I love these muted colors which is funny because hubby and I have argued color schemes and furniture since the day he moved in. He is all about the browns… and I am all about the black furniture lol.
He must be rubbing off on me LOL
Lil’Inkers dual stitch frame
Something I never mention, my scissors. LOL I confess I do not own any “craft” scissors except the little pair that came with my Cricut tool kit. I actually do most of my intricate cutting with.. erm.. hair dressers scissors lol.
I have an old pair of Triumph Mastercolor scissors from back in my UK days… these must be at least 20 years old and have NEVER ever been sharpened lol. LOVE these scissors. I have another set I use too… but I’d have to dig them out to figure out what they are lol.
