Beautiful…

ETA--- The typo has been fixed. I made an error and in my hurry switched the places of C and A in “because”. Thank you for pointing it out Kajikit & Margreet.

SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE.

 DSC02779 (I love this photo!)

Hello everyone! Hope all of you are well!

I made a card based on the sketch at Mojo Monday and GOD there are some GORGEOUS entries for the sketch challenge!! Even if you are not playing, I suggest you go and check out the entries… they are mind blowing! Wowsers!!!

Guess what! I turned on my camera yesterday and there were no lines on the display! I don’t know how long this will last so I took advantage of the situation and clicked quite a few photos! I love how the close up of the rosette looks in the picture above! (It’s just a good picture, it aint that pretty in real life! LOL). This is how the card ACTUALLY looks like.

(The typo in “because”)

I love these light colours and pastel shades, I don’t make cards like these because they are hard to keep clean! No seriously! Told you, Karachi is a dusty city!

Anyway! I have distressed the edges of both the PP and the black layer. Inked the edges of PP with dragonfly black color queue pigment ink (I think).The hearts are roughly drawn, cut and then painted with white pearl paint. I even painted the positive (raised) bits of the top embossed section. Here’s a picy…

 

DSC02799 (not bad eh?)

You can see bit of a shimmer on the pattern paper too… Actually this paper is a printout, I used some free elements to design this paper. After I printed it, I sprayed it with (my favourite) Lacquer. In this way it remains protected and the ink won’t wash off if your water brush drips. You can try lacquer with normal cardstock (like I ALWAYS do), it adds a bit of shimmer (depending on how much you spray) and also makes the cardstock a bit sturdy.

Hope you like my card!

Much lOve and bIg hugs!
