Ok, so on to my card:
I have used the slightly melancholic looking image called Gothic Lament. I think this card could work beautifully as a sympathy card - they are so hard to make.
The image is coloured with promarkers, cut out with a nestabilitie and the edges are inked with two distress inks. The thing that took the longest is that aggrivating bowembellishment. I knew I wanted a bow and that stone looking thing in the middle as it looks like the girl's pendant. I just couldn't get it all together and after an hour or two I just had to admit defeat. The papers I have used are from DCWV and have a wonderful metallic sheen to some of the details.
I cut out the oval so the rose and one of the wings would be outside of the frame. Doing it this way makes you focus a bit more on the rose, which gives the sadness an even bigger impact. I also put a black frame on one side of the oval. I think it balances out the image and the whole layout.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. Next on your hop-stop is Micki.
