Good late afternoon to you all
hope your Sunday has been as relaxing as mine.
I did do the ironing but not instead of the brooch but as well as the brooch. I also made a double challenge card and I am pleased with myself that I have made yet another xmas card (Sam - keeping to the promise I made myself :) )
So here is the little bit I did for the brooch, (Polly I am sorry, just no comparison to your lovely pieces of work)
This is the card which I am entering into the
Friday Sketchers Challenge 48 - This sketch I had seen before in my Magnolia Ink Magazine, loved it and adapted it before and slightly adapted again for this slightly larger card.
The overall card (inside matches)
The papers are from the Hobby House along with the card stock and pearls, the ribbon from my stash. I used the cuttlebug nesties for the image platform and an emboss and die snowflake shape for the base of the flower. The punches used are all from the Hobby House. The pleating was fun, but does not show off it's true interest by the placement according to the sketch. May have to use it again to better effect on another card.
The close up of the floral embelishment
Here is the close up of the copic coloured image on the new paper, still not liking it but will persevere with it for a while. For those of you who have asked what the problem is, I will try to explain
The new stuff is lovely soft smooth and fine paper and does not necessarily drain the ink from the pen,
however when I work on my comic book art board, as I layer the ink colours for the shading it actually blends the edges together and sort of all sinks to one level on or in the paper. This new stuff well the first colour sinks into sort of the paper but the second colour sits on top and then the third sits on top of that so when you try to blend with the first colour it just sort of smudges the colour around instead of fading the darker to the lighter.............
hope that that makes sense
Back to work tomorrow, so I am going to have a lovely long relaxing bath and watch Dancing on Ice
Take care and thanks for browsing
