I am so excited to have been voted a featured member in last week’s Muse Challenge – this is the first recognition I have recieved and it means the world to me. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has posted a comment on my blog – crafters are such a supportive bunch of people.
This is my entry into this week’s challenge using this amazing card by Therese Calvird as inspiration:
I clear embossed the stripes and was aiming to distress them slightly to take on some of the wood grain appearance from the inpiration card – this didn’t quite work out how I expected but I went with it anyway!
I used a stamp from Get Stamping magazine issue 3 and shaded it with my new Spectrum Noir pens. This is the first time I have used them and was really pleased with how well they blend, particularly with such dark colours. Still need some practice with my shading though! I hand drew and coloured the hearts, then added the sentiment propped up on foam squares to give it a 3D wave.
Thanks again for all of the comments, they really make my day, Cx
