Two tone image

Hello and welcome to my room . I hope that my blogging friends are in good spirits .
I had a pleasant afternoon with a beginner of card making while Doug put a movie  DVD on and dozed the time away.
Last night I made this card for my Tuesday ladies .
I began with Glossy White for card base .The embossed Whisper White  background has been sponged and edged with Bashful Blue. I added a little lace from my stash to the bottom . The image panel has been treated in the same way as embossed layer. . The image itself , Gumnut Brush, Helen Williams, Stamp-It.
I inked the image in Soft Suede then,  with scrap paper touched random spots to take off ink . Then, using an Old Olive Marker touched up the bare spots and stamped it .   This gives a beautiful two toned image easily.
After adhering this panel to card front I embellished with some Rhinestones from my stash .
Hope you like this one.
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

  4. That's really pretty Shirley-Anne! I love the effect you got with the stamp. Can I ask what type of markers you use? I'm currently using watercolour pencils but I'm hoping to step up to markers and I just don't know if I'm ready for Copics straight up :o) Kylie
