the next level 3

This is my entry for the latest challenge on 'the next level', where we had a sketch to work from, and a template for the arch shape - it had to include a tag as well. The base is pearlescent blue card, with the pocket printed from the Artylicious 'seasons greetings' cd. Image is a Graphicus Guild stamp stamped in distress faded denim inks, and coloured with a waterbrush and faded denim, also a few dots of ink from a marvy blending pad. Matting onto a glimmer-misted bit of cuttlebugged card - done so long ago that I have no idea what colours of gm's were used. The flowers from the Elusive Images poppy butterfly plate were stamped using the same paper and ink; the distress ink was used to colour the tag - both the tag and the flowers were then painted with a pale blue mica powder to give a bit of sparkle . Ribbon was originally white, treated with the same distress ink.


  1. I'm here again Veronica! I think this card is really lovely. The little touches of colour on the image blend perfectly with the cuttlebugged piece and you've followed the sketch well too.

    I had a look at it the other day but never seem to have time to enter any challenges (I wonder if that's 'cos I don't make time).
