Card Patterns sketch 46




Hi all,

Here is another card I've made. This one is for the Card Patterns sketch 46. I'm really enjoying doing sketches at the moment.

I wanted to try to make another valentines card, so came up with this. I discovered something wonderful whilst doing this card. The two hearts on the bottom right are chipboard (yet another "from the stash" item). I coloured them in with Copic Ciao Strong Red, then used Jasper Red Twinkling H2O over the copic & lastly I put some Diamond Glaze over the top. Once the glaze had set the two hearts have such a shimmery goodness about them. Unfortunately I'm not that great a photographer so you guys can't see what I'm on about very well :(. But trust me it looks fantastic in real life. So if you get a chance I suggest you try this. I find that adding Twinkling H2O's over prisma colour pencils does something simular as well. Which is really good when you want to add shimmer to everything ;). Thanks for stopping by & have a great week ahead - Happy Crafting everyone. TTFN

Paula... it's great to see you back in action,... just love the idea of using H2O's...even if I haven't got any... I have been doing the same with watered down Liquid pearls over things to get that glimmer. Your card is just stunning...Your take on the sketch is just awesome.
