My mojo finally seems to be returning from the wilderness! I needed a card for a birthday next week and was determined – for once – to avoid my usual last minute rush. I love the Sketchy Flowers set from Digistamp Boutique but rather than simply printing & colouring one of the images, I decided to print it, trace it in white pencil onto parchment then emboss it from the back. I coloured it from the back with Duck Egg Promarker & Derwent Jade Green watercolour pencil, to match the backing paper.
I felt the main image needed mounting onto white card but I struggled to securely attach it. In the end I used double sided adhesive sheets then ran the lot through my Cuttlebug. The ribbon was also coloured with Duck Egg Promarker and the greeting was stamped onto parchment & white card to match because plain white card didn’t look right..
