Hello! I hope everyone had a great weekend...... The weather here went from 80 last week to 34 today. It actually snowed! Needless to say I AM disgusted with our weather here in Western NY. Today I have for you my challenge card for "Midnight Madness" #52. I have also submitted this card for this weeks "Pixie Cottage" challenge. We were to make our own charm. I used a jump ring and a gold disk to hang of of my tag. The sketch and details can be found HERE. This week I was excited to use my new digital images from "Priscillastyles" Store. They are a lovely set of birds and flourishes. I already have a card in mind using the flourishes. First off I created the scalloped frame using my KNK digital die cutter software. I programed the design so the beading holes would be cut out with the frame. Next I applied a coat of Ranger Distress Crackle Paint in "Tattered Rose". I sponged the edges and hand sewed the beads. The "Birds" were resized and printed out on "velvet" paper. After trying several mediums for coloring, I got the best results with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. You can see the texture of the velvet paper better in the close-up photos below.
