Hi everyone and wow! Can't believe how many comments came flooding in for my last post in such a short space of time - thank you everyone. Ironing done - check, washing up done - check, lads ready and off to school - check, dog sorted - check, FB updated - check. Next on the list is my third autumnal card (as promised) this time using a lovely digital image from Nicecrane Designs as a focal point.
This one is a bit of a balance of the more minimal (well, design-wise at least!) with texture.
I kept it simple with the digital image; just some light distressing with ink and some Rennaisance Treasure Gold gilding wax on the edges. This painted image came from a wonderful set from Nicecrane Designs called Vintage Butterflies Cards.
You've seen the master board background already. This time I rubbed a touch more Rennaisance Treasure Gold gilding wax over the stencilled leaves to give them a copper glint.
Where would I be without Tim Holtz' Simple Sayings?! You never know when you are going to need an emergency card for a friend in need so it pays to have some in stock.
And finally the tattered floral flowers with copper centres, and my take on a 'rusted copper' butterfly. It's amazing what you can do with mixed embossing powder.
Do check out Ignacio's range of digital designs at Nicecrane Designs - he has something in the store to suit everyone. I'll be back later with my last minute TH tag entry (it's on the 'to do' list). Until then take care of yourselves and have a great week. Hugs, Jenny x
