I mentioned yesterday how much I loved Karen Lockhart’s newest release of images.
This particular image is my very favorite one! I am longing to color it, but my schedule is not allowing it at the moment. Instead, I thought it would be nice to show you that you really don’t have to color an image to make a lovely card. Check it out and see:
While I was in Ft. Wayne last weekend, I had my first visit to an Archiver’s store! (thank goodness I don’t have one near where I live…I’d be broke!) I purchased many pretties, one of which was this yummy Heidi Grace paper. It has a spot varnish on the flowers with glitter, and the paper is shimmery as well. It’s gorgeous!
I had these Spellbinders curved rectangles dies out from a previous card, so I used them again with the SU! naturals ivory cardstock, as well as a matting of Prism suede brown dark. I sponged the ivory with Ranger distress antique linen, and embossed the brown layer with my Cuttlebug paisley embossing folder.
I finished the card off with some antique copper brads, and this stunning copper May Arts ribbon.
So, what’s the verdict? Can an un-colored image still look lovely?
