I just couldn't resist making another card using another of Rachel Vass Designs. This one is known as
Trio of Peony Roses and was such a pleasure to colour. I printed up on Copic friendly paper as I planned to colour with my Copics but after laying a base colour with the Copics I decided to use my pencils to truly highlight these wonderful flowers.
I love how they turned out and it did take me a bit longer than Copic colouring as I am trying to learn to pencil colour properly and only put down light layers and built the colours up. When it was finished I brushed over the flower itself with my Wink of Stella to add a bit of sparkle.
I then decided to add some soft blending for the background rather than copic or leave white. I had a spare image printed from the same time so decided to fussy cut that and add some glue to the back to make it a mask. The funny thing is it was a particularly hot day with both the air conditioner and the fans going in my craft area so I don't melt. After I cut out the flower I left the area for a few minutes, came back and the fussy cut piece had disappeared. To this day it has not turned up and its not like it disappeared in a messy spot. The table had very little on it and after crawling around and moving things about I had to admit I was defeated.
I still wanted to mask so I used a piece of vellum, traced the image, fussy cut and added Tombow Mono Glue to the back and waiting till it dried. Perfect for masking, I then blended with my Distress Oxides Cracked Pistachio and Tumbled Glass. Stamped 'you are' and added the die cut 'Awesome'.
Its a 5.5" x 5.5" card.
