So Suzy Christmas Baubles

Hi Everyone,

I am up on the So Suzy blog today with a card I made with those fabulous little baubles from the November release!

So, how did I make this card?

I spritzed some Dylusion inks onto a sheet of plastic and smooshed water color paper in it and let it dry.

I then took the baubles and inked them in a lighter color  and spritzed with water or just spritzed them with water to get kind of a ghosting technique. To be honest with you - I was not thrilled with what I got. I thought it was too much. So what to do - I hate throwing things out (I rarely ever do...) - so I cut the panel diagonally. Thinking half of too much could be good, right?

Fiddled around with it on black card stock and thought it need something else, so I smooshed a scrap piece of card stock in the same color and heat embossed some baubles in white. Fuzzy cut them. And played around placing them onto my card.  Settled on a triangle, mounted them with foam tape and heat embossed the sentiment.

Still not happy.  But you know what -  a little gold embroidery thread and sequins can work wonders!

In the end I really liked my card! Hope you like it as well!

Happy Stamping!

Fabulous! Amazing what you did out of something you wasn't too keen on x The black really does work well with it. Fun and such an effective technique. Thank you for sharing this beauty x

You did a great job with the ghosting technique, Cornelia and those beautifully vivid colours look lovely with the black.

The black really makes the ornaments pop.
It's a great contrast to the section
with the stamped ornaments in the
Great card.
thanks for sharing.

Und ich mag Deine Karte auch, sehr sogar. Und ich habe mich gerade wieder entdeckt, denn mir geht es auch gelegentlich so, aber mit ein bisschen tüfteln und ausprobieren kommt man am Ende zu einem schönen Ergebnis!!
