A Fancy Edge

Hello there and happy Monday :0)

We are on our family Hols this week so last week was a little hectic to say the least, crafting took a back seat so for todays card I thought I'd share a recent publication in Craft Stamper magazine...

This one layer card uses the yummy macaroons from Avery Elle's Bonjour set, I took a folded card base and stamped them up the open edge in a very precarious stack I have to say!! I've used the large solid image for this with Stampin Up ink and then, using a slightly damp waterbrush, I added extra colour for shadows and infilled the centres with matching colour cream too *yum yum*

To make them look even more 3D I used a pale neutral colour ink (Sahara Sand) and a waterbrush to paint a shadow behind the stack to the left and trimmed around the right hand side to make a fancy shaped edge to the front of the card. This isn't watercolour card so I had to take care not to use my paintbrush with too much water otherwise the card would pill and buckle!!


Just a reminder the new challenge is Anything Goes challenge at Paper Smooches Sparks and this is my DT Inspiration card ..
I've used Cat Icons, Geobasics and Bold Buzzwords.... more details can be found on my blog if you'd like them or hop over to check out the rest of the DT's projects and play along here :0)

Catch you next week :0)

So much attention to detail in your macarons, Jenny. No wonder it's a pub!
