With my new stuff I decided I would have a go at their weekly challenge, which is to create something inspired by their guest designer of the week which this week is a lady called Carol Quance. I chose to use her card project here using her layout as inspiration and her tips on making all the elements touch to bring the card together.
I made the background paper using metallic yellow-orange paint, then stamped the script repeatedly using faded jeans distress ink. The image and sentiment are coloured with brick red distress ink and highlighted with a little orange colouring pencil. I stamped the dragonfly and leaves but decided they looked too flat as they were so added the detail with a Sakura gold gel pen which I then decided to use to edge the image and sentiments too.
This is definitely a lot less cutsie than I normally do but I like the finished effect, I hope you do too.
Thanks for looking :-)
