Black & Red

Good Evening All my crafty followers and visitors

Here is my second post for today.  I have had quite a busy day today and this is the first chance I have had to blog since my pre-scheduled post for my last DT card for Dude Time Doodles.


For this card I have used black pearlescent card and made an A5 card.  The front of the card I have scored half way and folded it back on itself.  I have then matted Red pearlescent card onto half of the card.  On the inside of the card I have matted some white pearlescent card with silver embossed swirls and flowers and then using Pan Pastel in Red covered the card and then buffed it up using a tissue which has made the embossed areas "popped".  The stamps is from Kanban which I have stamped using Stazon black ink and then coloured the butterflies using Sakura glitter and gel pens in Red and Black.  I have distressed the edge of the topper using a paler shade of red.  I have added a sentiment which has also been distressed using the PanPastel red.  I have added red bow and leaf with flowers and stems to the top of the card.  Something a little bit different to my usual style.


Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs

This is fabulous, Linda! Great job on the card but also on the photography. Shiny papers are so hard to photograph and you've done it perfectly! Love the embossing, too.
