A new month means a new challenge at the House Of Cards, this month we would like to see you use coloured pencils on dark card.
For this card I started by stamping on black card and then embossing with a pearly white powder.
Last year I invested in a set of metallic pencils in the fond hope they would look good on dark colours, I'm pleased to say I wasn't disappointed.
The petals have a blend of three colours on them to create shading, when the card is tilted to the light it has a great shine too.
After colouring all of the flowers I trimmed the panel to fit a 7x5 inch card blank. To pick out one of the colours in the petals it is layered with a pink card.
The greeting is stamped and embossed with the same powder, then die cut and mounted on a pink layer before going on thin foam pads on the card.
House Of Cards new challenge runs all month so please come and join us with your cards.
