hey guys , happy Saturday
Visible Image day :):)
this weeks card is a bit umm how can i describe it, its not quite clean and simple, and defiantly not my usual grungy shabby ott style lol, maybe you would describe it as arty?
who knows, but here it is make of it what you will ....
this really is a beautiful stamps set, called Beauty is Art, i have gone for a kind of roman villa wall type of thing..( well that's what i was thinking of anyway lol.
i decided to play with my pastels this week, (iv never really been good with them).. so the base card was covered with a soft soft peach pastel. then using a Brown i added veins to resemble marble.
i used worn lipstick distress ink for the trim and words , but i did second gen stamping , to just ink and stamp it was way too pink, so i inked stamped on scrap paper then inked on the card, giving the effect of worn paintwork. the image was stamped in the same way, then using the pastels and my fingers to blend i coloured up the body, which i then cut out and mounted on the card.
i kinda like the effect , and have to say the photo doesn't show too well how pretty the colours are.
i hope you like it, I'm still not sure lol
