Use some Metal
Hi folks, it's time for another challenge over at the Artistic Inspirations Challenges blog. This week, the theme is 'Use some metal'. I have chosen to make two cards this week, but using the same sketch. My first card is using a digital image called 'Emma'. This is a fabulous vintage style image, and I wanted to create a card that had a period feel to it. I chose a colour palette of soft blues, browns and greys, and coloured the image with Copics. The background paper is a free digital download.
I embossed some pearlescent card with a metallic finish through my Big Shot, and then rubbed some Inka Gold in Silver over the raised areas. I added some more Inka Gold to the edges of my card. I added a watch charm to the ribbon to finish my card.
My second card is based on the same sketch, but would be more suitable for a child's Birthday card, or for anyone who likes a bit of magic! I've used an image called 'Starr', coloured with Copics, but added some Platinum Stickles to her dress for some sparkle. I embossed the purple circle with some gold stars, and added some punched stars from gold card. The sentiment is computer generated.
Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bears, and the prize that they are offering is a shop voucher to spend in the online shop.
