Hello everyone, this is card number two in the ‘You’ve Got Style’ collection and isn’t she just FABULOUS? I think so anyway and when all is said and done I craft for the enjoyment it brings.
This particular version we did at a team training event with a few other demonstrators in our team and we all had a play with the embossing paste and stencils.
The card base is basic black and the bermuda bay coloured embossing paste is spread onto thick whisper white cardstock. The tip with embossing paste is to try and get differing thicknesses as you spread it over the card front and this gives the real textured look. This time I haven’t spread the embossing paste over the whole card front and I like the effect.
I have used watercolour pencils and aqua painters (not too wet) to colour and once dry added some bling, glue from the fine tip glue pen to give a shiny leather shoes, over the lenses of her glasses and the fur collar and cuff of the hat and coat. The oval framelits fit well to cut her out matted on basic black and adhered with dimensionals.
And you just can’t improve on Fabulous when You’ve Got Style like that can you!
