Don't look too closely at the colouring though,I'm trying out some different card, I thought it was going ok till I used my blender to remove a tiny blip and it ended up bleeding a large splodge over the line! So annoying!
I think I must have felt a bit Autumnie(is that a word?) when I made this card,it started with the Basic Grey paper and led on from there,I stamped my Pink Gem Apple Mimi and coloured her to match using Copics (badly) I distressed the edges of the card using Antique linen then used some brown stickles. The rather huge looking buttons are flat backed self adhesive pearls which I touched with colour,I think I cast a shadow when I photographed them as they look unevenly coloured in the photo. I cut some swirls using a Revolution flourish die and placed toning shades of gems onto them.I find that the easiest way to attach lace to a card is to use a tape runner along the edge before placing it,here I used a toning strip of paper to lay it on first,I then folded the ends around it,removing the bulkier pieces so that it glued fairly flat to the front of the card but still leaving enough to make sure it stays secure. If anyone has any handy tips on how they attach their lace I'd love to hear them,it's good to share :) What do you think of the greeting? I found it in the drawer,had no idea I had it.
