OMG!! you do not want to know how long it took me to make this little card! Kazan has her sketch number 2 over at '2 sketches 4 you', and rather than use ready made scallops, i decided to try to draw my own!*! I love that the sketches are hand drawn, the sketches alone are works of art! :)Well, as you can see, i did manage to draw the scallops with a Zig Millenium pen onto the pink cardstock! I then cut around them and 'touched up' again with the black pen, until i was happy with the look. I went shopping today, and one of the things i bought was a set of Scenic Route chipboard birds. I want to be able to use them several times over, so i traced around one with my Inkssentials white pen, rather than covering it with paper or card, which is what i've done in the past. This way i can use them over and over :)
The patterned paper is from the 'Sultry 6 x 6 pad and the black card is Bazzill. The sentiment is another recent purchase from Hero Arts, and the brackets are AC Thickers which i have coloured with an ink pad.
Thanks for popping in today, see you very soon :)
