A card I have made for a cyber friend, Alison, who's birthday it is today
The Hydrangea stamp was one of the first I ever bought, and I was never happy with the results of my colouring, till now! Due to my copics I have managed to get it somewhere near the colour I want! Stamped on to smooth white card with Adirondak pitch black die ink. The little sentiment is from Stampin up. I had fun creating the background, I always wanted to try the 'faux linen' technique after seeingthe technique done by Sue on C&C. Instead of distress inks I used alcohol inks on glossy card and sanded length ways and width ways. It still looked a bit too pink! I didn't have any blue ink, so I used a blue glimmer mist and the result was stunning, just what I was looking for. I put it though my trusty old Cuttlebug' using the script embossing folder. ( had a nightmare with my Big shot last week - mega paper jam!!) I sanded a it very lightly to expose more of the script and voila!
PS I have taken a photo of the background as I thought it a shame to hide it behind the image
Thanks for stopping by I do appreciate your visits
