Here is another card I have made with one of Bizzy Bec's lovely new designs...Oliver:
Bec supplied a package of lovely designer papers in black, silver and grey and some paper flowers, buttons, ribbons and brads. They all loked so beautiful together that I tried to use as many things as I could on the one card :-).
The base cardstock is black and is folded to form an A-frame card. I punched out a variety of the designer papers using a 1 1/4 inch square punch and adhered them to the background cardstock.
I stamped Oliver on some Stampin' Up! Watercolour Paper in Black Stazon and coloured him using an aquapainter and Classic Inks (Close to Cocoa, Blush Blossom, Basic Gray, Going Gray, Real Red and Old Olive). I really wanted to apply some Crystal Effects to the flowers and bow tie, but I have had some bad luck with Crystal Effects on Real Red...it seems to leach all the colour out and you end up with pink Crystal Effects and orangey pink underneath..ICKY...if you know how to stop or get around this I'd be very interested to hear about it.
The 'Be mine' sentiment is from the Papertrey Ink Heart Prints set.
I have mounted the flowers together using a brad and then adhered them to the card with a dimensional.
I guess this would have been a great Valentine's Day card...but there is never really a wrong time to give a special someone a card like this!
Thanks for dropping by :-)
