Hello my blogging buddies
I hope this finds this well, I don't know about you but I'm glad it's Friday, it's been a hectic week here.
Anyway, at least my card is relaxing!
I was given some gorgeous Faye Whittaker Decoupage sheets for a present and this is one of them. I spent absolutely ages trying to decide on a layout for this card. It's such a lovely image that I didn't want to go over the top with embellishments. I tried adding so many different things, I was surprised how much old stuff I had lurking about and was pleased to find the metal star fish ( I haven't a clue where it came from)
So,as you will see I have made a twisted easel but at the moment it is looking quite plain. I tried adding some ribbon and a bow but it just didn't look right to me.
This is one of those cards that looks much better in real life. I added some stickles glitter glue to the waves which you cannot see on my picture. Also the bottom panel has been inked and then embossed with a paper crimper.
Here's a couple of close ups to try and show you what I mean:
So, I may make some changes to this at a later date, not sure yet!
