Edwin - Papertake Weekly


Hi,

Today I have made a card for the Papertake Weekly Challenge.

For this I have stamped Edwin in Archival ink. Coloured with coloursoft pencils then sansadored. I stamped him out a few times, to cut different bits of the image to then 3d them onto the main image, for the wings I used star dust stickles.

The papers I have used are Basic grey and these I have distressed with Brilliance pearlescent orchid. The wavy line on the side I distressed in vintage photo and glimmer misted. The sentiment is Aud design and I used vintage photo then embosed this. I mounted all this onto bazzill.

Thank you for looking.

love kim x
