Nana Vic's New Challenge!

Well hello all! I got my dates a bit mixed up and should have posted this card yesterday in line with the latest challenge from Nana Vic - oh well, better late than never!

This is my all time favourite image from Nana Vic, I'm so glad I finally own it -  I think it has so many uses and it just speaks to you - the perfect peace!


I coloured the image with Promarkers and carefully cut it out. I used a base card of Centura Pearls white and coloured up the background to match the image, I used some peg stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry and stamped up the shells and starfish, then found some small letters and stamped my sentiment - which is how I feel when I look at this image!

I tried to get a seamless look to spotlight the image and to give it more impact I layered parts of the image.

I used my glaze pen on the flip flops and the large shells.

Well that's my card for this challenge I hope you like it and I do hope you'll join us over at Lady Annes for this latest challenge from Nana Vic and if you want to pop over and see what delicious artwork she has available you can find her here!

  10. Hi Laurian, WoW am I ever so glad that you shared the last photo with us, so that I can admire just how much detailing you have put into your 'Blissful' card. Great ideas by adding the dimensions and highlights to the shell and thongs with glaze. You must have a very steady hand as your cutting is perfect. I adore how you have used the digital as your inspiration to create your own background by following through the basic design and colours. Thank you so much for sharing your inspiring card with us at Lady Anne's Challenges (Nana Vic) *Hugs* PS. I'm glad you own the digital now. *Smiles*
