Secret crafter challege 97: Blue and Cream






Hello crafty folk...
Hope your weekend went off with a lovely bang, I know mine has, but I won't say too much yet.... but I will fess up as soon as I know more.
I would like to share with you guys and gals this creation, I made this card for Secret Crafter Saturday challenge.
I stamped a Lilly of the Valley image onto Bockingford watercolour paper and coloured it with Copic Ciao and Pro Markers, for the shading I found some metallic pencils that I had bought ages ago to give the image some depth and definition without flooding the image with too much ink, the background paper is from a Artylicious Seasons Greeting CD the snowflakes are from a Marianne Die cutting set, I also used some Core-dinations card in the Cuttlebug, sanded it, then mounted it on cream card.
So without further adieu

Hi Bridget,
My, you have been busy, you can't half craft, it's 1 or 2 cards a week for me usually....lol
This is just gorgeous, Wendy borrowed me those dies to make samples for the shop, they are gorgeous arn't they...
I love this card so much, that image is on my wish list, I love LOTV stamps....
You have done a beautiful job here, gorgeous card, the colours are perfect for this weeks challenge...
Glad you played along

Bridget your card is really lovely. I like the distressing/sanding on the embossed paper, i must really try and give that a go it looks stunning. Like Vicky said, 2 cards a week for me is usually pushing it haha.
