I cut a piece of black card to 7x7 and attached the madeline stencil to it at the top with masking tape. i brayered buff titanium onto small gelli plate and pulled print offleaving stencil attached to card. Then i added yellow ochre and sienna to gelli plate and tried to get it over the hair area as much as possible and pulled another print. Then I added dark brown over flower areas and did the same and again for blank area.
as you can see here i added some stickles glitter to the flowers thus creating more interest on print.
Next came the task of turning it into a card. Below are the two options. I chose to embellish it a bit more as i felt that the glittered flowers needed to be balanced out.
I added a small dotty flourish using the same stickle glitters. With the gold edged ribbon i made the flower in the corner and two strips around edges to give idea of a gift. I finished it off with 3 brown pearls in top right corner and a brown pearl in centre of flower.
Let me know your thoughts. Which one do you prefer? Incidentally this is the card I made for my friend's 50th and i will only post it after I have given it to her. Theresa xx
