Black and White

SCROLL DOWN TO THE BOTTOM OF THE POST FOR THE FREEBIE

DSC02807

Hello everyone!

I just completed a card and wanted to show you guys SO BADLY! It is based on the challenge over at Make it Colourful. The theme is “Vintage Photos” (Monochrome)! SOOO my cup of tea, coffee, coke, EVERYTHING! LOL (you can def tell I am a bit excited—OK, A LOT excited). The card’s layout is based on the sketch at Friday Sketchers. Here’s my card:

DSC02810(View from right)

This card has SO MUCH dimension it is not even funny! There is a whole lotta foamy/spongy two way tape used on this card! I know there is A LOT going on in the card and that is why I have two views for you so you can see all the dimension.

DSC02813(View from Left)

Okay so the image is shaded with lead pencil. The flourishes and the second layer from the image (doily type) are cut from Silhouette. The biggest circle is a pattern paper that I designed on PS. The last white layer has been embossed and the edges are inked using black pigment ink and silver chalk ink. Oh and that frame around the sentiment is also cut from Silhouette. The two, very tiny hearts on the sentiment frame are scrap bits from the doily.

Close up of the flourish at top left.

You like??? I think I am missing something… glitter? or maybe pearls… huh! Don’t know! :/

I want one favour from my regular readers… my blog buddies… price this card please…  just approx. Thanks!

This is one fantastical card! All those dimensions and patterns flow so smoothly together. My opinion is it doesn't need anything else. Everything compliments each other so wonderfully. Because of all the cuts and dimensions, homemade paper and all I wouldn't charge any less than $10. It's truly a magnificent piece of art. Thanks for the freebie too!

AcrossTheWater said...

This is spectacular! In terms of a price, I'm not sure I would even sell it as a card. Perhaps put it in a shadow box and sell it as art. It is worth it!

Dawn said...

Beautiful card - thank you for the sentiment. I agree with "across the water" - I'd get it framed up and sell it for far more than a card (if I could bear to part with it!!)

Michele said...

I'm breathless! Oh how I have missed seeing your stunning creations. You are beyond amazing. The layers. The textures! WOWzers. Incredible pencil work. I don't think it's missing a thing, and how on earth could you price something this gorgeous? If I had to, I would say 25 dollars. NO kidding. How many hours did it take you? (5 days?) ;O)
