Hi all. I have another Mo Manning digital image to show today called Bismarck used on this card for our son in Australia. I also used a Crafter's Companion Embossing Folder called Frosted Elegance also having it's first outing, and a Memory Box die called Hanging Ornaments which I used on my last post here.
I started by colouring the image with some pencils and also used some oil and a paper stump to get a smooth finish, and fussy cut it out. I then then used the embossing folder on a piece of card cut to fit a 6" square card and die cut the bauble from this piece having backed the left hand side with a piece of Stick it adhesive. I then very carefully removed the pieces, luckily there weren't too many small ones, and I had already decided not to replace all the small pieces in the snowflakes. I then coloured the background using a blending tool and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink making the colour darker around the edges and lighter towards the centre keeping the colour light. I replaced the outer white frame of the bauble and then started to infill the other white pieces matching the pattern where necessary. I finally coloured the other pieces with the background blue and put them back and used some double sided tape around the rest of the piece and added the sentiment using the same Peacock Feathers ink before sticking it to the card
I finished by adhering the cute dog as close as I could to right of centre as otherwise all my hard work with bauble die would have been hidden...lol.
Although the card was sent on 2nd December it has never arrived, naturally I was rather disappointed, but luckily only the second time he has never received one of our cards at all. I was hoping that it might eventually appear, but don't think that will happen now. Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.
