Don’t you just hate it when at night you are falling asleep on the sofa just trying to keep you eyes open while you watch the end of your program before you head up the wooden hills to your bed…. only to find when you get all snuggled in your nice warm duvet that you are wide awake and then can’t sleep? I know that you are nodding your head. Well this happened to me last night, and more annoyingly Will (the husband) did the ‘I can’t go to bed now, I won’t sleep’, rolled over and was catching z’s before you could say …. I don’t know but something really short like ‘tea’. So after tossing and turning for about 45 mins I decided to get up and head to the craftroom, and I so glad I did as I made a really cool card (if I do say so myself … I have also decided to see if I can make pentagon popular.. don’t know if this is going to work yet but watch this space 🙂 ).
I have used the Valentine Wishes from Wplus9, I know I use this set all the time but the sentiments are just too darn amazing not to use ;)….
Now instead of stamping the wreath in the colours I wanted to use I stamped it in a really really light green ink to I could go over it with my coloured pencils to add lots of different colours and shades to the otherwise solid stamped image. It adds more of a sketchy/artsy look to it I feel. The banner I have used Copics to shade and colour and I do have to admit that this BG11, BG32, BG15 have to be one of my favourite combo. I went with the current trend of adding my layer diagonally and sticking off the card.
Hope you like my very late night make and I’m actully really chuffed that it still looks ok in the daylight 🙂
