Hello, dear friends and visitors!
Last week we had the visit of a little squirrel in our garden. It came so fast from the neighbour's garden and run up from tree to tree... Our dog saw the movement but didn't know what it was. I can tell you it was a great image in my mind, I will not forget it! The squirrel didn't have poppies but it was announcing spring, you don't see them before it :)
I would like to show you this new card I made and I would love if you can comment telling me your opinion:
I've got the image long ago, it was a freebie at A Day for Daisies, I colored it with acuarelable pencils. I cut it with a scallop oval die and I used some red cardstock and a die from the same set for the mat.
I used white cardstock and dots embossing folder for the background. I used more red cardstock for the mat. I love dry embossing, you can make a simple piece of cardstock to look awesome, it gives texture, adds dimension and a delicate background.
As embellishment I punched out a few butterflies from a magazine paper and then distressed them with a red ink pad, I glued them with double side fomi tape. I used pearls to give some sparkle and add more dimension.
I am thinking, maybe instead of red, should I've used kraft cardstock?
