Charisma Cards Challenge


This weeks challenge at Charisma Cardz is Favourite Things.
This is using my favourite technique, dry embossing with one of my favourite Marianne Design stencils then areas cutaway and underlayered with 2 shades of cream pearl card.
I pinched tildas tulip from the card below which I wasnt happy with.
Coloured with damium orange, dark cadmium orange, dark chrome yellow and light cadmium red f&c watercolour pencils. Paper by Brenda Pinnick. A few minature gems and a satin bow.

This is the one I didnt like. Background was made for a challenge on Docrafts using adirondack inks swirled onto linen card, over stamped with a craftwork cards flourish stamp in red stazon.
