As usual I'm kicking off the new week and a new theme, and I think you are all going to have a laugh along the way, but I first have to report some cruelty behind the scenes. We all love Sandy but this week she has targeted us all to re-do a card that we made a long time ago, as far back as you can go. We have all been cringing at the thought and I was hoping I wouldn't be able to find the stamps, but I'm honest and I did, so I am here today under duress, lol. Seriously, we still love you Sandy and thank you for making us do this, even though I am still cringing and daren't open my laptop today, it is actually good to go back and re-create a card you made before to see how far you have come, and to all those emails that I respond to about my colouring, I always say practice, practice, practice and hopefully you will see what I am talking about today, oh god I am hiding.......
So here it is the THEN and the NOW side by side. This happens to be my very first card that I made using a coloured image and my very first colouring. It dates back to January 2009. I think it's fair to say that I have always liked flowers but my love for embellishments has definitely grown, lol.
They have both been coloured using distress inks for a direct comparison and on the NOW card I have used PionDesign Lily of the Valley 12x12 paper and you will notice a little shabby white frantage around the edges of the image, hehe, love this stuff. The lace at the bottom is just beautiful.
A little Angel resting on the bark heart, cute.
I have used the little present charm with the words, "for you", perfect for this card. The snowflakes were cut out with accetate and dipped into diamond dust.
A cascade of flowers consisting of KortandGodt Berries, Gardenia, Flower sprays, white poppies and Chrysanthemums all with a dusting of Gesso, hehe, not sure I've done a card without either snow tex or gesso.
Enjoy the rest of the week, I can sit back and relax now mine's out in the open and see what the rest of the girl's have re-created starting with Tina tomorrow, so be sure to check back, it will be awesome!
