A little Drama...
I promised to show this card last week but due to the shows I had last week and the failings of my camera I had to delay it! So today's the first chance Ive had to show this one. This is a sample I made for my shows with Sue Wilson's die range a couple of weeks ago. I have to admit I made this in the morning of the shows as I was watching Sue herself on catch up (www.hochanda.com) and was inspired to make this card.
I stared by cutting the arbour gate 4 times, twice in vintage gold and twice in gloss black. I cut the centre gate section form each of them then overlapped the outer farmers, black on gold, with an offset shadow. Next I cut a strip of bright white foundation card the same width of the gate sections. I then stuck the gates onto this, gold over black, using the 2 sets along the length of the card. I overlapped the edges using the trellis at the bottom of the gate as a guide.
Next I stared the layering by adding the largest frame over the panel in the centre. I then added the outline gates over this. Next I added, with foam tape of course, the centre gate sections. I added the other frames and decorated the whole piece with different sizes of black stick on pearls.
I cut a series of the olive branch die in the gloss black and with some black twine and gold thread from my stash I arranged these around the largest frames.
