Wooden Card...

Happy Thursday,

I thought it was time I showed this card made simply with a wooden background.


I stared by colouring a piece of watercolour card with the Izink Pigment dropper inks adding dots of the colours and then spritzing with water too make the colours mix.  I love the swathes of colour and the shine form the gold!  I used this as a frame with black gloss card to frame the piece of wood paper stamped with the sentiment.


I wanted a little more framing so I cut the Gerbera Rectangle background in white and added black pearls to highlight the flowers and detail.

Finally I added dragonflies cut with the solid in the coloured watercolour paper and topped with the detail die cut in black gloss card.  This die was designed to frame a background and I really feel that it achieves it here!


Enjoy...

  6. Hi John. I went mad for your dragonfly die and just realised I haven't used it yet. Got the decorator in so won't be able to find things for ages.
